It has Begun

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.
