Oh my gosh.

Here I am, 48 years old and I NEVER thought I'd be able to say this...

I started my new eating plan twelve weeks ago and I have


My BMI reduced from 44.8 to 38.7

I've never lost more than about ten pounds or so on purpose.

I'm so excited!!!

No magic in what I'm doing.

I limit myself to 1200 cals per day (I'm 48 and perimenopausal, so my needs are less than younger women)

I eat a lot of veggies and lean protein. Some fruit, but more veggies. Most of my carbs are from fruits and veggies-- I've recently introduced some strictly limited quantities of rice and pasta, but I MEASURE those.

I've found a few single serving things to snack on-- reduced fat cheese sticks, yogurt, instant miso soup-- so that I don't mindlessly graze.

I swim laps or walk 4-5x a week, but I'm more likely to slip up on exercise than on my eating plan.

I record my calories on fitday.

I check in here often (are you sick of me yet???)

Thank you so much, everybody!!!!!!!

I can't believe how supportive you all are.

I have to confess that it CRACKS ME UP that anyone would ever call me a poster girl or an inspiration...

Me?!!!???!!! Up until now, I always thought I was the charter member of the failed dieter's club.

It just goes to show how the past doesn't have to predict the future.

Now, on to the next mini goal...
