You have ready my blogs about my struggles. You have helped me through the rough patches and cheered me on through the good times. I thank you all for you time in reading my rants and accomplishments. And FINALLY, I'm truely back.
A little over a week ago I started a new diet plan, the South Beach Diet. And as much as I dreaded Phase 1 of just meat and vegetables, it has turned out to be the best thing to help change my life. I brought my mom and dad along for the ride and I can report with the greatest of joy that we have all lost weight! In a weeks time, my dad has lost about 6-7 pounds, my mom about 8, and me....well...I've managed a healthy 8 myself! :-D It just feels amazing to remember that feeling again of looking at the scale and not wanting to throw it across the room. I feel just absolutely amazing. And the best part is, that was just with diet alone. I've not done the right thing and exercised, but despite, I've lost that weight.
So, today I took my happy butt downstairs and put in a good 20 minute workout to get things going again. So, like my blog subject says, I'm sweating like a pig...but it feels great! :-D
