195- I just want to get here, away from the 200 line! - I keep hitting this & then bouncing off of it. UGH!
193- my low weight when I was nursing my daughter in 2006
180- the weight I was in 2003 when I got married
165- the weight my doctor said I could get down to safely. I might be allowed to go below that, but let's see what that looks like first.
I started by cutting out the junk, the soda, and the desserts. I am really keeping track of what I'm eating and I'm already seeing results I think. I need to step up the cardio. Walking just isn't enough, but it's hard to find time for myself.
I live in Western Massachusetts. I'm married and have a *9* year old daughter.
@REBECCAMA I agree with you! I use Fresh Acres machines to pump out my peanut butter :) They luckily have machines they fill with peanuts that you can use yourself to make your own peanut butter! They also have almond butter which is delicious xD Stop and Shop has a great peanut butter though :)
I was looking to see if anyone else here has tried the "3pm Secret" and came across a blog you wrote a long time ago about working 7a-3p and needing to figure out how to eat per your new schedule. Anywhoo... the 3pm Secret would work for you as I am doing it and I work 9a-5p. You can eat just about all you want (healthfully) upon awakening till 3p and then you do not eat till the next morning. You may have some juice, fruit, or some other liquids to tie you over if necessary in the evening. I downloaded the ebook by Debra Anne Lawrence Ross and I am still in the process of reading it but it makes a lot of sense... I was shocked to learn that how I was eating before (essentially fasting most of the day till dinner time) is similar to Sumo Wrestler's diets...and I for one DO NOT wish to look like a Sumo wrestler!!! Anyways...if you decide to give the 3pm Secret a try, keep me updated on your progress. I'm going to send you a friend request. All the best!
