hey all, well ive been here before. and now that ive literally been the whole way round this forum and tried every other diet under the sun, :break_diet:i am back to calorie counting again. ive seriously had enough of yoyo dieting and want to shift this weight once and for all and in a healthy way. so here i am... im going to be following calorie counting mixed with a bit of rosemary conley. i am currently reading linda spangle's 100 days of weight loss and i really think this book can help me. every chapter i read i feel like shes actually talking to ME. And as far as exercise goes im aiming to do 30 day shred and C25K. i have a treadmill at home so noooo excuses..!!!! i got the latest rosemary conley mag today and theres a 7 day diet enclosed that she says u can lose up to 7lbs. u do day 1 1200kcals, day 2 1000kcals , day 3 1200kcals and so on... so going to try to follow that this week. then next week im going to do 1200kcals for the week and then the following 2 weeks 1300kcals. if i get that far lol then i plan to do 1400 kcals a week from then on.. phew.. so wish me luck peeps. im not going to write a food diary on here just some of my daily thoughts and progress. linda spangle encourages you to keep a journal so i'll be recording everything on paper everyday so no point in writing it out twice. looking forward to catching up with u all.
