I'm presently trying to lose 28 pounds to get down to 210 from 238. I'm setting my milestones as follows: 228 - 10 pounds lost. 223 - The last time I was this weight was about 15 years ago. 217 - The last time I was this weight was about 18 years ago.
I am on an alternate day fasting diet.
I'm 53 years old and married with two children. One is in college and the other one is 11 years old.
I've been a vegetarian for 30 years now. I primarily won't eat anything that needed to be killed in order to be eaten. So this also rules out fish, but I never really liked fish anyway. I do eat a lot of dairy products and I'm sure that I eat products that include eggs in them (for example, cake). I am trying to cut back on my dairy consumption now by drastically cutting back on sliced cheese, pizza and ice cream.
Thanks Bob for your comment on my blog. Sounds like you could totally relate to our situation with our kids! I know they grow up fast so I am grateful for the time we have with them now. It just makes us appreciate the times that we can go out by ourselves sans kids!
That's good to hear Trinity. We all have to make decisions on what we feel is the most important to us. With your ambition and wanting to put your children first, I'm sure that you're a fantastic homeschool teacher.
Thanks for the welcome to the Alt. Day Diet. I am hoping it will bring me great success to my health. I was origianlly going to get an MD/PhD degree, but got married and chose to stay home instead with the kids. They just seemed more important. My science background will do good homeschooling.
