I have been on SBD since May of this year. It is the perfect
eating plan for me. I am not crazy about starches (with the exception of pasta), so omitting them from my diet has not been a huge sacrifice.
Since May, I have planned a few small detours from the program (minor indulgences during vacation and 1 piece of cake at a birthday party 2 weeks ago). I also planned these in advance so that I could incorporate them into my eating plan and also indulge without the feelings of guilt or weakness. Other than those, I have stayed faithful to the program and reaped the rewards that I set out to gain. So far, I have lost 27 pounds and can see the light at the end of the weight loss tunnel.
At the end of June, I started to walk on my lunch breaks. Since I had surgery in June, I started off very slowly - I think once or twice per week for 1/2 hour. I am now power walking (4 miles) on my lunch break 5 days per week. This is a feat in itself because I hate all forms of exercise, including cleaning the house.
But I think that it has also aided the weight loss and brought me to a more healthy state physically.
Welcome to SBD. Hope to hear more from you soon. Take care.
Never be afraid to try something new.
Remember.... Amateurs built the ark,
Professionals built the Titanic.
