Since the first of this year I have been trying my best to loose weight. I actually accomplished it! I have lost a total of 20 lbs! I had no clue how big of a change in my looks it made until my husband took a picture the other night. I have been getting many wonderful comments about how much weight I have lost. My husband tells me almost every day that I am wasting away. I love all the compliments because it keeps me going.
I have also been asked what is my secret? No secret at all. I have been cutting back my calorie intake to about 1100 a day. I also have tried my best to cut out sugars and breads. Those two things are my weaknesses. I also only drink flavored water and occasionally a glass of milk or juice. I also cheat! Oh yeah I will cheat and eat something not so good for me or go over my calorie count maybe once every other week. Of course there are also date nights where I won’t worry about what I eat. Don’t be afraid to cheat every now and then. Also if you feel like you have done bad one day don’t worry just start new the next day and try your best.
I also started doing Jillian Michael’s Shred but I only did it for 2 weeks because I started feeling bad. I love the work out and it makes me feel good after I do it. It is not easy though. The first 2 days you really just want to cry. I pretty much did the first day. It works every part of your body…So worth getting past the first 2 days. So there is my secret :) I hope to loose about 10 more pounds.
