“The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.”
Okay May is here, time for me to make up my plan for May.
Drink my water!! 100 oz a day!!!
5 Fruits/Veggies a day!!
No Meat for 10 days May 2nd -12th !!
Sleep 8 hours a night!!!
Exercise Cardio 6x's a week, with 2 extra workouts on Tues & Thurs.
Strength Training on Mon/Wed/Fri!! Build some muscles and tone up.
Continue sparking to keep focused on my goals and reading the articles because they truly help me out.
Keep a food log, for when I am out and about.
Cutting off my food at 7pm. Get in 3 meals and 2 snacks daily, stay in calorie range!!!
I am going to lose 8.5 lbs this month. So on June 1st I will be 231. That will be my 50lbs lost weigh in. I will have to think of something to give to myself.
I will weigh in half way through this month on Mothers day just to see the results of no meat. I want to see how that will affect my body!!!

Today has been a long day........I did my weigh in this morning I am down to 239.5, which is good. I am okay with it. I initially started out aiming for 235 that is my prepregnancy weigh and I wanted to be there for today (Its my daughters birthday) So with her being 6 years old today that was my ultimate goal. I am glad to be this close to my goal. I am truly okay with it. I think being so close to my 240 is what has me bummed. I am riding the fence here. I just want to get away from the fence. I do know that I am planning and re-evaluating for May as I type this up. I will post my plan tomorrow morning, and get started on it right away. I am working on this. I will not fail, I will not give up, I will not give in. I will succeed.

I am here doing this the right way, the way that is finally working for me, I have tried so many things in the past its a shame. I should be crowned the Diet Princess, however I would give up my title because this is a lifestyle change and not a quick and easy fix.
Things I have tried!!!!
Slim Fast- Yuck!!!! I threw up after the first bar and a shake I couldn't hang with it. This was many years ago. ( just recently tried the chocolate bar that tastes like a snickers, it wasn't bad, I could use it as a snack, thats it)
Atkins- I lost 10 lbs and quit, didnt like limiting my foods, too drastic for me. Plus right after I quit the pounds came right back with friends.
Phentermine- diet drug that was an appetite suppressant. That helped I lost 10lbs with the first week, I had slowed down to losing 2 lbs a week until I got down 20lbs, then I stopped and my appetite came back full blast. Which meant the lbs came back full blast.
Lemonade Diet- I felt too deprived of the food, just drinking the juice, seemed to be leaving me hungry, lacking my nutrients and vitamins, and just hungry. I didn't think my body would lose weight for good with that one, I just lost willpower on that one.
I have even tried to go without eating, but that didn't work. I have finally come to realize that its all about a lifestyle change, meaning take things in moderation, and exercise to balance what you put out and what you take in!!!
