I honestly have never reached out for an "online" support forum before. I'm a bit nervous about the whole experience, but I find I don't have a lot of great females around me that want to venture on the same path. Most of the ladies I know are pretty content with their expanding or remaining waistlines and likely want mine to stay the same. I personally feel like I've spent the last few weeks thinking over whether or not I really want to lose these extra pounds as I could never be the type of person who didn't like herself at any weight.
I'm not even sure if it's truly the pounds and love handles I would like to remove or if it is more the weight off of my mind. I truly feel that if I adopt some healthier choices into my day that I will feel better all around (or at least thats what the experts tell you).
I don't want to be a super model, but I do want to be comfortable in a 2 piece again. I want to eat in a good calorie range each day, and ensure that I am at the gym each day. I also want to keep myself focused which may likely be the hardest part for me. My biggest fault is my ability to eat on impulse. I've got a lot to work on, I know. I think finding a balance will be the toughest part.
I'd sincerly like to know the following if you have time to respond
-what are some of the simple diet things you have done to stay on target for your daily caloric intake? Tips? Strategies? Eating patterns, etc?
- Do you really need to adopt a resistance training program? How much do you really need to do?
-Would it be better to simply focus on cardio for now (say first 6 weeks)?
Thanks for reading... if anyone really is.
