Re: Losing Weight...
I went from 236 to 199 from Dec 6th until last night. I havent been that in about 10 years.
For working out,all I did was workout on the elliptical for 30 minutes twice a day. Burning 580-600 calories at a time, so around 1,200 a day. Then after dinner, I take the dog for a walk around the circle. Just about a mile or so. I do this just so I dont feel full before going to bed. I did all of this with no running or weight lifting, other than playing basketball and such. I did get a diet pill from GNC. It is called Oxy-Elite. It is a purple pill that you take twice a day for 160 pills. It cost about $35. It was well worth it. It burns more fat when you work out. I could immediately tell a difference the 1st time I worked out because I have never sweated so much in my life.
As for food, it was simple as well. 2k calories a day. 500 for breakfast and lunch, and 1k for dinner. I basically force myself to eat breakfast now. A mix and match of 35 calorie slice of bread with low-fat cream or sometimes butter, 80 cal. yogurt from Kroger, any kind of fruit, sausage and egg white muffin from subway, or cherrios with skim milk. For lunch, I basically eat Subway everyday lol. A 6-inch wheat or flatbread sub. Mostly ham, turkey, chicken breast, low-fat buffalo chicken, or the italian BMT. My downfall was not eating mayo, so I get mustard or honey mustard which I too made myself like. Dinner is simple too. Any kind of fish that is non fried, any meat really, with a baked potato, veggies, or salad with low-fat dressing. It is best to eat dinner before 7:30. Which I am proud to say I have only eaten dinner 3-4 times after that since I started losing.
Fast food was my major problem. I used to eat Wendys, BK, McDonalds or whatever 1-2 times a day, atleast. I am proud to say that I havent had a buger and fries since that day I started. THey say a cheat day is good for your metabolism once every 1 1/2-2 weeks. By this means to put butter on a baked potato, or eat a couple slices of pizza, or use regluar dressing on a salad. Sorry, I know that was a lot, but I havent felt this good since I was 12 lol. It was the best thing that has happened to me. Hopefully I will lose about 20 more before May.
