My exciting News!!!

Hi everyone, I want to thank you all for all the advice and suggestions you have given me about health and fitness. I have always had problems with my weight and I have done a lot of wrong things thinking I have been doing the right things. One example would be restricting my calories to an unhealthy amount daily. That sets your body up in starvation mode, where you do lose weight you don't lose fat you lose muscles and all the vitamins and minerals your body needs to function. So I have recently found a life style that would fit into my personality and into my life that is easy to manage and you don't starve yourself with it. I thought if this doesn't work and I gain instead of losing at least I gave it a shot. Well guess what everyone, I am so excited to share this with you all. I have lost 14 pounds in just two weeks of just simply reducing my calories to 500 less calories than what I have eaten before. So the whole myth of starving yourself is just that , a myth. I only reduced my calories to 500 less than what I ate before. I ate what I wanted within the right portions and kept my calories in check some days I went a little over and I didn't deprive myself of anything. I still drank soda, I still had chips with my sandwiches but instead of eating and drinking a ton of that stuff I kept it to maybe one can of soda or 12 pringles instead of the whole tube. I drank more water and I still lost 14 pounds in two weeks that is 1 pound a day. I am so excited and I am so happy to share this news with you all. I will check back in with you all in another two weeks to let you all know how I am doing. Oh I forgot to mention I am down one pant size as well. Thank you again everyone for all your support.
Stay tuned tomorrow for some yummy recipe ideas, until then I hope you all live, laugh and love.

  1. I can't tell you how proud I am of Heather for her dogged determination in tackling this task, and a task it is. She has stuck to her program ans them some, all with a smile on her face. This should serve as an inspiration to others who face the same lifestyle choices. I love you, Heather. :)
