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
