Hi ladies. So I'm back after a 6 month hiatus. I lost 25 pounds from June to September and was doing great. I had plenty of cheat days, but as long as I stuck to Phase 2 and exercising, the pound or two I would gain came right back off.
Then sometime around October, I got really busy at work and stopped going to the gym. I went into a downward spiral after that. I still maintained my weight and eating ok, but by December, it all caught up to me as cheat days became almost every day. Then there was Valentine's Day candy and then Easter candy came out... through March, I caught myself eating whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. I went through a 2 week eating binge in early March and decided enough was enough. I am now 8 pounds away from my original weight.
Today was phase 1, day 1! And it's hard. :-/ But I have a whole week of meals planned out and I am ready to go! I am thrilled to be back here to get ideas and support and I am looking forward to hanging out with you ladies again!
