Sure thing, Cyndy!
Actually, I'm 111lbs now
, but I could of lost more if I ate more. That is, in the period of time I didn't eat, I didn't lose. I lost most when I ate lots during the day, and less at night.
At any rate, this was what I did:
1. Ate a low calorie, low glycemic breakfast (whole grain toast with cream cheese and fruit, for instance)
2. On days that I ate more than I should of, I'd eat a dinner consisting of no more than 200 calories. I usually ate alot during lunch, so for dinner I'd have a "Kinetix triple chocolate" protein bar.
3. When eating with my parents, I'd drink 8 cups of water immediately before dinner to make myself feel full.
4. I hula hooped while I watched movies at home.
5. I treated myself each day. I'd have a very enjoyable lunch, and balance it off with a small dinner. I didn't feel deprived that day.
6. Toning exercises before bedtime EVERY night. I made sure, even if I ate badly during the day, that I'd at least build muscle. I did leg lifts, crunches and squats.
7. I wouldn't waste calories on juice, alcohol...etc. If I had a starbucks frap, that would be my lunch.
8. I constantly rewarded myself with clothes. I'm doing that again tomorrow.
9. I told myself that this wasn't a diet. It's how normal people eat. I was just an overeater in the past.
Of course, when I go out with my friends to eat, I wouldn't worry about the calories. I can't enjoy my meal like that.
10. I fully utilized diet buddies. If it weren't for my first diet buddy telling me that if I don't stop overeating, I'll reach 125lbs, then 130lbs and so on. We email eachother.
I'm SO sure you'll reach your goal, Cyndy! I'll be here for you every step along the way! I was flipping through my diary, and there was one entry, "I'd be lucky to be 110lbs by the start of school". Well it looks like I'm gonna make it! You just gotta be dedicated. Don't beat yourself up over the occasional treat...like donuts...which I'm eating right now
