How I lost the lbs. and my plans for rockin abs!

Someone recenty asked if I could blog about how I lost the weight I wanted to lose last year. So I wanted to share my dieting tricks.

First thing I did was blog about my weight loss need. I asked if anyone wanted to join in on losing weight and we could email one another to encourage eachother. I am a very goal oriented person, so once everyone is expecting something from me, I never want to let them down. So along with 14 fellow bloggers and my mother, I began to dedicate my days to losing the pounds.

My ending weight was 107 lbs.

Other then email motivation, I aso had to exercise and eat well.

Ever night I did crunches. Increasing my numbers every 2 days. I was doing over 500 crunches in just a few days. But keep in mind I've been doing crunches since I was 13. My mother who never does crunches was doing about 25-50. She found it easier after a week to do a bit more.

My mother and I went walking every other day.

That was basically all the exercise I did. But just the walking and crunches really helped tone my body, because rather than my mom and I sitting around eatting by the tv, we broke our habits and did something active.

The hardest part for me was dieting. I love food! So I had to continue to eat the foods I love, but in moderation. I avoided snacking on too much sugar though.

This is an example of my everyday meal plan:

Meal Outlook of the day:
Breakfast: Peanut Butter and Jelly on whole wheat
Starbucks mocha Frappucino with no whip cream (barely drank it though)
Lunch: Tuna Salad with 1 slice of whole wheat bread and mixed berry yogurt
Dinner: Chicken with brown gravy, brown rice, and spinach

This was the way I ate for about 2 weeks, and I reached my goal quickly.

Now this year I want to tone my body into tip top shape. So I plan on doing a hardcore workout to intensify my body. I want rockin abs! So my first step was to purchase the Ab Rocket. It's an ab workout that uses resistance to shape up your muscles. I'll be starting it tomorrow, plus doing some extra cardio. I'm also watching what foods I eat, to make sure I can reach my 6 pack goal asap! I'll take before and after pictures once my goal is reached.

Wish me luck!
