This is the reason I decided to make a blog.
I just had a baby two and a half months ago and gained a ton of weight. It seems that ever since I met my husband I have gained weight like there is no tomorrow and have never looked back. I used to weigh 145 lbs in my hey day, but then went through the freshmen 15 (it was 10 for me luckily-I was living at home still), then went through the honeymoon, eating out everyday phase when I met my babe and gained another 15 lbs!!!! At this point I was only 160 lbs (I say only because I'm 5'9") but I was starting to get a bit round on the sides and my clothes didn't fit anymore. I was a 12 back then. After baby number one I gained a whopping 20 lbs. Now size 14. Then right before I had baby number two I gained another 10 lbs.
So there you have it. I have been overweight for a couple of years and I could never lose more than a couple of pounds. I tried different things but I haven't been able to be under 187 again....until today! Today I feel "muy chingona" because I woke up in the morning expecting to be somewhere between 187 and 191, like I had for the last two months, but walah! I am 186.2 lbs!!!! I've been trying this easy diet and exercising lightly two times a week for....well, only one week and I was able to lose that much!!! I hope it keeps on going like this. I am expecting to lose about a pound a week and weigh 170 lbs by the end of december. If it does go well, I'll post what I have been eating and how I've been exercising so you can try it too.
Here's a sample of what I have been eating this week:
Breakfast (never skip it!!!)
2 egg whites
2 strips of bacon
1/2 cup of broccoli
1 tablespoon of Ranch dressing
Snack (eat every three hours)
Atkins protein shake
1/2 apple with 1/2 cup of cottage cheese
Chicken or Tuna Salad
Low Carb Protein Bar (I recommend oh yeah bars - they taste like a real chocolate bar)
Meat and Veggies again
And.... no carbs after 4 pm
