I've been fairly successful on my diet and have increased my treadmill time and just this week started light lifting of weights. Just in time for 3 big weekends. This weekend is Superbowl Sunday. The following Saturday is card night. The following weekend I turn 40. My goal by my birthday was to get down below 200. I'm at least 14 pounds away and with the Superbowl 3 days away I think that is far fetched. I guess my goal this weekend is to really hit the treadmill and weights. Maybe walk one hour each day.
I also was told about the Wendie Plan that says to fluctuate your "points" or calories so the body doesn't get used to a certain amount. I think I've been pretty consistent only having between 1400 and 1600 calories. I may need to have one blowout day this weekend and see if I recover.
At least I'm feeling better!
