I started my diet on January 1st! I have stayed true to diet and exercise for 23 days now! (I have never, ever stayed on a diet for more than five days!) So, I know that I am serious now.
I stay at 1200 calories a day, and I try to eat as many veggies as I can.
I have tried to work out 6 days a week, but I am ending up only working out 5 days a week.
I usually do Jillian Michaels DVD's, Biggest loser DVD's, Winsor Pilates DVD's for two days out of the week and the other three days I run or do the elliptical for 30mins - 1 hour.
I started at 164, and I am now 156.
The first week I lost 4 pounds!
Second week I lost 2 pounds
Third week I lost 2 pounds!
So I am staying consistent, and I would looooove to loose two pounds every week.
The only problem is, I have no support : ( I live so far away from any family, I just moved to Los Angeles. I made friends with a few neighbors (they are all twig skinny) and whenever I talk to them about weight loss they look at me like I'm crazy. I live with my boyfriend of 4 years (he is a nice sized man, muscular, well built, tall, he works out a lot, and eats A LOT well over 4,000 calories a day I'm sure!!!!!!!, but he has not concept whatsoever about calories)
Anyways! I have questions all the time, and sometimes I just want to vent, but I don't know where to go! I know I am not going to give up but honestly, I feel like I am doing this all alone.
Some things that I ALWAYS wonder about are.....
If I stay within my calorie budget, can I still eat before bed?
I have lost a total of 8 pounds, BUT, I don't see a difference?
Honestly, how long would it take me to loose 30 pounds (like a date)?
If I workout in the cold, and don't sweat as much, am I still burning as many calories?
Thank you guys so much!
Sorry so long!
