I've gone back and forth about posting this for a while but I've decided accountability breeds success so here we go.
A good friend started a radical diet a while ago and she has seen radical success. She's down 20 pounds and her friend (who did it at the same time) lost 27 pounds. I don't know the specifics of where she started or ended but I'll tell you this. She looks good.
I've never been on a diet in my life. My mom dieted off and on for 40 plus years and it's just not my style. I rarely see a lot of success in others' diets and until I had my 3rd child I didn't have a lot of motivation. Recovering from that pregnancy at age 32 was not as easy as I thought it would be. After being on a serious exercise regimen for 2 straight years (exercising at least 1 hour per day/3-6 days per week) I noticed a lot of muscle building (and tighter physique) but very little weight loss.
Then I noticed a radical difference in my friend who is now 20 pounds lighter. Why not try it, right? I can't (shouldn't) lose 20 pounds so 20 is not my goal but I am interested to see how my body will respond to this strict protocol. I struggled with whether or not to post this here. I'm pretty private about things like this but I realized 2 things. 1. Accountability is a good thing. 2. I need to process.
I'm a total verbal processor (thus, the blog) and if I don't talk/write it out, I'm in trouble. That and my husband is going to get really sick of hearing it. =) So, for his sake, here it goes, blogworld.
For the sake of privacy, let's just say I'm starting at X and I'll continue to post progress as it occurs in real time! Wish me luck.
