Well for the past 6 months, I've REALLY struggled with weight loss and even gained 10lbs. But for the new year, my goal is to lose 40lbs by December 2013. So far this month, I'm lost 11lbs:-) I know that my weight loss will slow down and I will plateau but I have been tracking EVERYTHING that goes into my mouth and actually pushing myself during my exercise sessions (and mixing up my routines). I'm feeling great. This morning I weighed in at 179.5. I'm so not where I thought I'd be at this point in time but I am confident that I will be at 150 by the end of the year:-) I just need to remember to push myself...It didn't take me a year to put on all of my weight and it won't take me a year to take it off..I need to remember that this is a LIFESTYLE change that I am making, not a quick fix.
One of the girls I work with is trying the military diet, which is where you starve yourself (basically) for 3 days and then eat normally for 4 days...She's thinking that she'll lose 40lbs in a month...I feel bad because I don't want to burst her bubble but I also feel bad because I want her to know that it's not a healthy way to go about weight loss. Any ideas on how I should go about this? We are semi-close as coworkers but not really friends...I just don't want her to go through this and be disappointed...
