Hello ladies! Some of you might remember me from last year...I did MRC from Sept 2010 to April 2011.
I lost 40 pounds (taking me to 170) but I fell off the wagon. Totally. I was sooo burnt out on MRC.
Then to top it off, in June we moved...but we had to stay with my MIL for a couple weeks...and it totally threw me off not being able to cook at all. Got me back in my junk/fast food habit quick. Then all I wanted to do was cook in my pretty new kitchen with all my new appliances and gadgets...bad for the waistline!
I have gained back 10-15 pounds and I'm back...but now I'm calorie counting.
I am teaching Zumba now (some of you might remember my goal for hitting 30 pounds lost was to get licensed to teach Zumba) and I'm currently teaching 7 classes a week. It is a blessing and a curse. A blessing that I get paid to work out (and get two free gym memberships at the two gyms I teach at) but a curse because it gave me an excuse to overeat, as in "I'll be teaching 3 classes later, I'll just eat whatever I want).
But all that is behind me. I stopped myself and have made a change, this time I think for the good.
And I think this time its a change I am willing to maintain forever, where for me, MRC was not.
I am soooo thankful to MRC and to this group for helping me during that time and helping me see that I COULD lose weight...it just took some hard work.
I'm back on 3FC, but hanging ont he 20-something and calorie counter boards...but I wanted to come say hello!
