5 pounds! That's all i've lost this year is 5 measly pounds! I know for some that number is great, but i weighted 272 odd pounds on January 1st and today i weight 267.3lbs...REALLY?!

Because i stuff junk into my mouth.

Am I working out?
Yes! I walk/jog almost every day. I strength train almost every day.

What's wrong with this picture?
No amount of working out will EVER justify eating over/beyond my calories. Bad eating habits = no weight loss.

So what am i going to do?
I've taken a step back. I've evaluated what i've been doing? I gathered the information that i used when i was losing weight. ANd i wrote out a battle plan.

What's my plan?
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday = Cardio days (I'm training for the 3-Day walk and those are the training days).

Monday, Wednesday, Friday = yoga

Monday - Sunday = strength training, no two groups back to back

Nutrition = 1300-1750 calorie per day

What's my May goal?
To make it out of the 260's!

What do i miss?
SWEATING! Sweat means i am working hard to change my body...

What's my End of Summer Goal?
I have a wedding to attend on September 21st and i want to look stunning in my dress.

What's the dress?

What does it look like on me now?

    Your exercise plan is TRULY lovely, but as someone else mentioned, only ONE line on the whole nutrition bit. You DO know that exercise is about 20% of weight loss and eating is about 80%. The calorie numbers are probably fine, but it is not only about how much you eat but what you eat. Try to make some goals for how you are going to improve your eating so your dress will look super. It is a LOVELY dress. The idea of going from whole milk to 2%, to 1% and finally to skim is applicable to more than milk. What are your weaknesses? Candy? Try using MINI candy bars. Doughnuts? Switching from several to one less each time you have them. Chips? Try tortilla chips instead of regular chips - higher fiber (there is SOME in most of the tortilla chips) lower sodium, and more chips in a serving that has LESS calories. Pizza? Try cutting back, changing toppings, and making your own, maybe even on a whole grain crust. Focus on your food for a while a little more because you are absolutely ROCKING the exercise piece.

    I looked over your plan and it's fine....the training part. You have one line dedicated to your nutrition!
    Define it!. Start eliminating foods. For instance, I love milk. I drink 2%, went to 1% then skim. After a bit of research, I found 1% was better for me. That's my milk of choice. Diet soda! I used to throw down Diet Dr Pepper like it was water! I started drinking more water (flavored and pure H20) and stopped soda of any kind.

    Slowly these changed became habit. Combined with my training, I started to see change. I'm going to do a blog on one without the other. I can tell you my bottom line is if you only do's a waste of time!

    That dress is truly amazing and I just know that it will look awesome on when you wear it for the wedding in September.

    The most important part is realizing what you could be doing better and making the necessary changes to move forward.
