Over the last year I have quit drinking pop. I stopped eating salt except on the rape occasion I eat potatoes or popcorn. I usually only drink alcohol,eat sweets, pasta or anything fried on cheat day. I went from never exercising to exercising almost every day.
I've tried as few as 1200 calories a day and as much as 1900 calories a day and every where in between.
I have had periods where I've not stuck to plan as well but over all I'm doing way better than I was a year ago. With all the changes I've made one would think I would have gotten rid of a fair number of pounds. Nope not unless one considers less than 15 pounds in a year a fair number.
Right now I just want to throw in the towel and eat cake,chocolate and pasta until I either get tired of them or die.
