Approx. 6 years ago I could:
- Run a mile (not quickly, but I did it without feeling as though my heart would explode!)
- I was very flexible, despite my curves, and could do the splits, among other feats of flexibility. I'm still pretty flexible, but I tried the splits a few days ago and it was quite embarrassing! Thank goodness I was alone.
Now, I refuse to diet, but I will modify my current eating habits! Which led me to lose five pounds this week! While that's not typical I do know that when you change eating habits the first few weeks go really well...for example...I cut out sugary beverages and sodas from my daily routine (except sweet tea, I'm from the South and that's just not feasible). I've also added more vegetables and fruits to my meals. I'm not a veggie hater, just never got the option to add broccoli and cheese to my cheeseburger at Sonic or McDonald's.
So with just those little changes I've decreased from 260 to 255! Now every Friday will be devoted to my progress! Maybe you can share some of your tips and tricks!
Also, just a (I'm not sure what this is) as a health care professional I will say that I consulted my Doc on these changes. I got a weird look, but mostly I asked can I begin an exercise regimen? Well, yes I can, but each person's health is unique and should be evaluated per their physician! So, today I'm going to get my assessment for the gym and get to moving these luscious curves!
