Down 11 lbs in the last week and a half! Basically a weight watcher's type of thing without actually going to weight watchers. I know their point system is to keep you under a certain amount of calories per day. I'm doing that on my own.
For those of you who I "yelled" at for pushing the no carbs things down my throat: while I'm still eating carbs, I try to avoid a majority of them if I can. People keep saying to get tortilla rolls instead. One tortilla has as many calories as two slices od the bread I was eating!
I'm avoiding too many deep fried foods. Not because of the saturated fat, but because it's so high in calories. I'm not depriving myself, but I have definitely cut back, even if not intentionally.
I still eat the occasional sweet, but only if my calories allow it. Last night, I was able to get a small strawberry cheesecake Blizzard, which is 510 calories, and I was still under my calories for the day! I have a major sweet tooth. Whenever I have the urge, I will sometimes chew a piece of gum or suck on a Life Saver.
My downfall is still soda. While I won't touch anything that isn't 0 calorie, I know it's still bad for me.
Exercise is going great. Derby seems to have killed my knees for jogging, but I still get out and walk when time allows and doing a little outdoor skating. I have derby practice for two hours twice per week. I even got out on my bike yesterday!
It's never too late to become the person you were meant to be.
