Turning this Apple Into... Well, Not An Apple ;)

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

Since I have started to lost weight, I have begun to wonder what my body will look like after losing this 100+lbs. You see, before I gained weight I was more of an hour glass than an apple. I have never really been a pear, since my lower half and top half were pretty evenly proportioned. But, as I gained more and more weight, my mid-section just took off.

However, I am starting to notice small changes in my mid-section as I am losing. It seems to be trimming down a bit. Last week, I met my fitness coach and added strength training to my routine. I hear that strength training can help re-shape the body. Well, I certainly hope so. My plans are to torch this fat with my cardio and build lean muscle with my strength training.

I am doing pretty well with my diet. I have started to incorporate more freggies. I rarely eat anything fried. I am drinking tons of water and I gave up the liquid crack, Coke. I still allow sweets in moderation. However, there is still room for improvement. I welcome any suggestions.

    3-4 oz of lean protein (meat) 3 times a day - eggs/egg whites, skinless chicken, turkey, and fish.

    For me, I had to give up sweets cold turkey because eating it in moderation made me crave it more. The only sweet things I ate were fruits-15 grapes, small apples, 6 lg strawberries. I had to stay away from melons though. I would over eat them.

    I counted and measured everything. I use Glad 4oz and 8 oz plastic containers that way I don't have to guess the amounts.

    Keep doing what you are doing. You will see some results!

    Good luck to you in eating more freggies! I'm going to do the same thing. Less meat and try to cut back on the sugars, which have been a huge downfall for me recently. We can do this! Good Luck! emoticon
