Still on the diet roller coaster
« on: Jul 11, 2014 @ 07:01 PM »
I used to be able to say that it was just baby fat, but now my baby is 8 and I weigh more than I ever ever have.  I used to be a "hott" mom but now I am just the chubby mom.  I have tried absolutely everything...even the whole eating right, don't diet thing.  I have decided not to give up and begin with my thinking first.  The second I try something new, in my mind I am saying
"this is never going to work", which of course is setting myself up for complete failure.   I have had all the medical things checked and was surprised to see that my cholesterol was low.  I am not against exercise but my life seems so full that I don't know where to start.   I will take any and all thoughts or advice on what helped you and if you were on a specific program.

Have a blessed day!

I have been losing 3 lbs. a week just by not eating carbs or sugar, except for breakfast and drinking tons of that pesky stuff they call water. ;)

Then I do 20 minutes on the treadmill 4 days a week.

Have you tried keeping track of your calories? I use MyFitnessPal with the Fitbit and I have lost almost 35 pounds since July. Counting calories has never worked for me before, but I think only because I never really stuck to it. I have been tracking my calories for 120 days straight now without missing a day and it has helped me to change my lifestyle completely.
