Default Making a new commitment

Well I'm here. And I'm serious this time. I'm going to do everything in my power to lose 50 pounds in 50 weeks.

Some facts about me:

I'm turning 40 in 2 weeks.
Two kids delivered by c-section makes for a flabby belly.
I am pear shaped and carry most weight in my hips, thighs and calves.
I crave sweets a lot.
I'm really embarrassed by how I look.

Some positive things:

I don't have even one excuse not to do it.
I'm working out 6 days a week right now, 2 with a personal trainer.
3 weeks ago I gave up coffee and Coke Zero (it's like giving up crack)
I plan to eat more plant based proteins and limit meat consumption.
My husband said if I lost 40 pounds he would take me to Paris (I'm down 10)

Oh and my name isn't really Betty.

Hi Betty! Or whoever you are

I love your attitude! It sounds like you've given this a lot of thought and have a solid plan in place. I hope we can be of help

We have a Vegetarian Chicks forum at which might give you some ideas for plant based meals.

Good luck! I'm looking forward to seeing your pics from Paris

Wow Paris has got to be a great motivator! I'm with ya on the coffee and Coke Zero, I have now gone 2 weeks without my pepsi max :'(. I've switched to green tea and just plain o water. It sounds like you're on the right track to get that 50lbs off, good luck, and enjoy Paris
