This is me today:
(I've never had definition in my biceps like this before!!)
Nov 2010 weight: 170lbs / 77.1kgs
Nov 2011 weight: 140.5lbs / 63.7kgs
(in high school, a bit over 10yrs ago, I hovered around 150lbs / 68kgs...so this is quite exciting)
Nov 2010 BMI: 30
Nov 2011 BMI: 24
(for more information on BMI - Body Mass Index, click here)
Nov 2010 clothing size: a tight size 12
Nov 2011 clothing size: I can fit into a 4! (and buy small or x-small in most things)
This is a lifelong journey. The process is still ongoing. I am still averaging about 1lb loss every 2 weeks. In the beginning it dropped quickly, now it's slower but my body is much stronger and I have much more energy (which is a really nice feeling).
I don't eat processed sugar anymore (stick to organic blue agave when needed). I don't eat refined flour or white bread of any kind. Everything is brown in our home. I don't eat fast food anymore. And I'm very selective on the snacks I eat. We consume a LOT of fresh veggies and fruit. I'd say roughly 70% of our grocery bill consists of fresh fruit and veggies. Mostly veggies. I'm learning to really love them like I never thought possible. I was a VERY picky eater as a child so this is especially surprising to me. :)
Next up, I'll chat about overcoming the S.A.D. diet...
