|She is the one eating the cake…I gain the pounds?|
I MEANT to post this yesterday. Obviously I didn’t, so here goes today. I am joining in with Shibley Smiles for Tone it up Tuesdays. I have a LOT of weight to lose. Like 10 lbs 10 times.
Stop! Just read the 10 lbs and ignore the rest.
Seriously though, I need to lose some weight. I need to be healthier and I need to be lighter and more fit.
Fad diets don’t work for me (do they work for anyone?), I need a lifestyle change.
I have PCOS which is a fancy way of saying my body loves loves loves/hates carbs.
Low carb diets MELT the fat off of me and make me pyschotic. Yes I’ve tried South Beach. Yes I’ve tried Atkins. Yes I’ve tried Weight Watchers. Lost 40 lbs on Weight Watchers and enjoyed myself while doing it. When I’ve gone back on it since though, I unintentionally manipulate the program too much. Just like every other weight loss effort, it backfires on me.
I need a lifestyle change. A diet and exercise overhaul.
I have close to 200 followers on Family Friendly Frugality (a frugality blog with a “personal” touch…here’s my personal touch! LOL), what better accountability than 200 people watching my progress?
I’m starting small. Itty Bitty. Drastic has been done and died. We’re going for baby steps.
- Each day INTENTIONALLY eat a bit less each meal
- Each day INTENTIONALLY move more each day
You can do it! It sounds like you're going about it in totally the right way so I know you'll do it. I'm looking to firm up a bit myself and I'm sure we aren't the only ones in the blogosphere! 🙂

Little steps is a great way to start. It its not about how much weight or how fast you lose it, it is about changing how you view food and exercise and making it a part of your life.
When I first started I started with no soda then compounded on top of that. It takes a couple days for something to become a habit once it does move on to the next tiny step.
Good Luck I look forward to reading about your progress
