You ready for the book of Becky… watch out, I’m in a “mood”
Ramranjitha- congrats on choosing a 2nd baby! My advice; don’t lay around eating ice cream –that got me in too much trouble. Just keep walking, stretching, eating healthy. You’ll do great! Being aware is ˝ the battle.
Tracy X! YEAY YOU! I’m loving your positive vibes. 4 lbs. then 1.5, your doin’ it girl! Give us some helpful tips that you are seeing work. Like, I know if I snack after dinner then I’ll gain…. So I cut that out and still not loosing….. chewing my dang gum, ARRG…. Needless to say, I’m not losing. And um, what's an ice finger?
Julia –a BAKERY, how can you do it?!?!?! All those good smells and yumminess. My oldest is a preteen girl who LOVES to eat & not so much activity…. so I really need to model healthy habits, but I don’t want to seem “worried” about my weight. I’m feeling like I have to really watch how I approach this and keep my “self-love” and “self-loath” in check. Not to mention I don’t want to seem like I have weird eating habits, so she thinks that’s normal.
Gouc547- Look @ you arm peddling and swimming, that’s dedication!!!!! Keep it up. Wow, I better step up my game.
Thanks for all checking in… I’m loving hearing how it’s going w/you all. So I got a little question (or maybe I’m using it as a cop out, so set me straight). If you start eating healthy, more fruits & veggies, baking or grilling your food, no candy or cakes (when you usually have that every day) and your doing cardio, sit ups, push-ups, etc. 4x a week, drinking more water, taking the stairs.. How long should it take for your body to start responding. I keep hearing that if your system is “out of whack” then it has to reprogram or clean out the toxins, blah, blah. I’m like a month into this and still only down 3 lbs. the 3 lbs I lost in the first few days of trying. Each week I do a little more…. Change to light salad dressing, how about none at all?
I’m THIS desperate…. I saw an infomercial where people were wearing this “belly band” and did 2 min. of abs and then wore it 10 min. every day…. Now I’m on my elliptical & doing my floor exercises in my spanks!!!!!
Makin’ NO dang difference…. I just look more ridiculous. I’m not giving up! So tell me, what is the longest “plateau” or time frame that it has taken for things to really start working for you?
