HI! I'm the Aunt. Call me Teen.
Today is the first serious day of this healthy way of eating and living.
Here's my plan:
1. Drink 10 glasses of water a day
2a. Stick to a higher protein, lower carb diet similar to South Beach.
2b. Avoid anything white, ie, white flour, sugar, dairy (except for my morning coffee, of course).
3. Only 1 cup of coffee a day (caffeine interferes with weight loss).
4. Exercise *at least* 5 days per week. Weight training one day and low impact aerobics on alternate days.
5 I'm staying focused on how I want to look on wedding day instead of focusing on how I look now (visualization is very important).
6.Take my vitamins (this helps reduce cravings since my body is getting the nutrition it needs).
OK. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Sunday moring will be my weigh in day. On weigh in day, the weight will be posted here.
BTW, this morning's weight is (drum roll, please)209.5 lbs.
Good luck to both of us.
