(This is me ~ December 2010)
Why is it the things we did to lose weight when we were younger aren't working anymore? When we were in our twenties and even thirties, we could give up pizza and beer for a few days and get back into our skinny jeans. But now, it seems like no matter what we do…that belly fat won't budge! Not only won't it budge, it keeps on growing!
If you're in that situation, don't give up. You aren't alone that's exactly where I was a few months ago. You see, I've always struggled with my weight. Right along with my mom and sisters, we have tried every diet, pill and shake out there. Sure we lost some weight, but always gained it back plus some.
Then, six years ago I came home to work our new auto transport business. With all the hours I worked I found myself NOT eating. Grabbing a quick cup of coffee and calling it good. Each time I would try to leave the office for a quick bite the phone would ring and back I'd go.
Finally, come dinner time I would be famished. Anything and everything smelled and tasted great, too great! I didn't just eat dinner, I inhaled it. No wonder my blood sugar and insulin levels were whacked out, right? Then if you added in how I shopped at the grocery store it would make your head swirl; I certainly did not shop to lose weight!
Then I met Renee. She shared a fabulous, simple diet program that would help me eat small, quick meals that were convenient, no cooking. That worked for me. I could eat them at my desk, even in between phone calls.
It didn't take much talking, I was ready to start. I was sick and tired of being a fat grandma. I was tired of denying my weight and how I looked. I wanted to be in the pictures with my grandkids, not the one taking the pictures.
By the end of my second week eating the "grab and go" meals I have lost 9 pounds and gone from pushing a 20W pant size to a 16 Misses! If I can do it , so can you.
(August 1, 2011 ~ week 5)
Week 6 and another two pounds gone, this makes for a grand total of twelve pounds melted away to date. Grabbed this pair of jeans this morning without looking. They were so baggy that I thought they belonged to my husband. I could get another set of cheeks in the seat of them My blouses no longer show rolls of my belly and are actually too big as well. I am now in a size 14 Misses and still losing weight weekly.
Week 7 and another three pounds gone making for a grand total of fifteen pounds lost. Today I grabbed a pair of new sandals as I was running out the door. They were too loose so I stopped to tighten the strap. Drats! The velcro straps were already as tight as they could be…I am losing weight in my feet, how does that happen? All I can say is I am eating my way thin and you can, too.
Week 8 flew by and we traveled out of town for three days. Even being out of my controlled environment at home my weightloss continues. This week another two pounds melted away bringing my total to seventeen pounds of fat…gone!
Here it is month 4 and I've lost a total of 30 pounds and 4 1/2 sizes. I'm half way to my goal and feeling incredible. I have to brag a little here because I ran into an old high school friend after years of not seeing them. They told me I looked better than when I was in my thirties. I wasn't sure if that was a compliment or a dig…I accepted it as a compliment and am feeling better than in my twenties.
(October 2011 ~ 16 weeks)
Eleven months on the program and I’m amazed at the results. Although I travel more than most it’s simple to take my plan with me. My food choices when traveling are now smarter choices. I recognize how much to eat and in what combinations to eat it. I even spent the day at Disneyland while on my plan and guess what? I didn’t gain an ounce, I felt incredibly energized all day long and my endurance surprised those I spent the day with!
