  • Anyone else still sticking to their diet?

    I think I am finally back to the point that I don't feel like I am on a diet.
    Man I was letting myself eat what ever from Thanksgiving on. And I could tell. I had no energy.

    I am back to the 1400 cals a day. Now I need to get better about regular work outs.

    Anyone else sign up for the Discovery health National Body Challenge?
    I think the deadline is 13th.

    Do you have a link to the body challenge? Because I think I can win.

    For the last 4-5 months, I've been working out regularly, probably 4-5 times a week. I lift heavy 3 days a week and two days are light weights and cardio. In addition, I recently got started on the Atkins Diet, and I've seen some pretty amazing results so far.

    I don't feel like I'm on a diet. It only took a day to get over the fact that I'm not allowed caffeine. It only took one more to get over the no carbs thing. I've already noticed a measurable improvement in my appearance, and while I'm loathe to get on a scale, the eyeball test tells me I've probably lost 15-20 lbs already.

    I get a lot of comments from people who haven't seen me since before I started the diet. Any hint of a double chin is pretty much gone, and my neck has a fair amount of definition now. I'm wearing jeans right now that I couldn't wear last month. I love this diet!

    And the best part is, as I get closer to my weight loss goals, I can slowly work certain types of food back into my diet without fear of putting the weight back on. It's like Christmas, except tastier!
    HEAR ME ROAR!

      I am not on any specific diet per-se. I have limited my calorie intake and continue to hit the gym.

      I have never been very high on giving up on foods that I like, so diets just don't do it for me. I love food. I eat the same foods, but eat in smaller portions. I have cut out on a lot of the sweets and soda though.

      I hit the gym 5 days a week. Cardio all 5 days, 3 days of heavy lifting. The cardio is where the weight loss is at though. I dropped 25 pounds in 2 months just from running 5 days a week and cutting back on the calories. I ran from anywhere between 4-5 miles a day. Once I got to the weight I wanted to be at I cut down to 3-3.5 miles a day and added weight lifting.
      Patriotic dissent is a luxury of those protected by better men than they.

          Hmmm... they're recommending 1-2 lbs per week. That's not very ambitious compared to what I'm doing, where 4-5 or more will be the norm until I get down to where I want to be.

          Also, I have a gym membership already, so it's kinda pointless for me. But hey, if you're going for it, I'll be rooting for you!!
