So I have now been lifting long enough that friends are starting to take notice. Yes, this makes me very happy. What is my secret? Unfortunately, diet and exercise. For me, exercise has never been a problem but I diet has been a problem. I am not by any means a total overeater. I have always tried to be healthy but I do love carbs and all kinds of cookies. So here was my problem. I want to share this with all the "medium" girls as I like to call myself.
I never saw results fast enough so I would just say, "oh well" and eat the mac and cheese. But if you are trying to lose 5 to 10 pounds like I was trying to do, then this weight loss speed might be the mental culprit. For medium girls looking to shed a little 1/2 to 1 pound a week is great! Yep, not enough to even feel is plenty.
So in 10 weeks, I have lost 6 pounds. I am happy, and best of all my jeans fit. So there is my secret everyone! Oh yeah one last little exercise that I am starting to love is the rowing machine. Running season over, new exercises welcome. Happy Sunday.
