Ready for a change

I am 24 and I used to be very thin. Over the last couple years I have gained over 50 pounds. Eating and drinking just made me pack on the pounds. I am finally ready to make the change I need to get it off. I have a hard time with thinking how long it will actually take me to reach my goals but I am trying to focus on just eating better and exercising.

Using spark and other means I have lost 18 lbs over the last two years. It has been very up and down but I am ready to commit! ...

Morning Mandi:)
I did both, drank the shake after my workout and as a small meal option. Sometimes I would just do half a shake. When I initially started I had a heck of a time getting in the eggs and meat, as well as several food allergies I deal with. I am not a huge meat eater and egg whites were new for me and SO many of them. I wasn't really counting calories, just focused on eating more of clean foods. When I couldn't eat something I would take a look at the numbers on the food and pick a substitution, which was often a shake. Plus it is easy. I was also someone who left a high protein snack for night. Even the times when she gave a cut-off for eating. I am a nighttime exerciser so I had to adapt for that.
Have a great day!

Hey!

Thank you so much for your helpful story! I'll still probably be getting a bit stressed about my upcoming interviews, but I'll certainly be less worried thinking of your story. :D

I encourage you to write more blog posts. They're a lot of fun and a great way to let everyone know how your journey is going. Hoping to see more from you soon!
