Sure I have no problems posting what I did, however i'm not saying it's the miracle of all " diets" ...My weight loss is due in most part by exercising i'd say 75%... I changed the way I was thinking about exercising.... I used to do 30-60 minutes of intense aerobic exercise 4-5 times a week .... WRONG .. wouldn't lose anything.. when I realized that the key is to do 15-20 minutes .. but every minute and a half ... I go full intensity .. seems like your heart is wanting to jump out of your throat. So 1 minute and a half... regular intensity (either biking treadmill elliptic) and then 30 seconds of maximum intensity .. I do that for 15 to 20 minutes .. and then I do strengthening, I usually use an elastic .. and do arms, back ... abs... for 30 minutes... when the elastic is too easy I change colors ... and make it harder resistance. At the end I sometimes add another 10 minutes of exercise with the 1 and a half minutes of regular intensity and then 30 second boosts.... and that's it in a nutshell... 1 hour and i'm finished... 3 to 4 times a week. I'm in the best physical shape of my life.. my arms are toned and so are my legs... i've never had these kind of results before.
As for eating habits... the key is to have a good portion breakfast ... I eat pretty much anything.. cereal toast fruit... ( no bacon) ... then I workout .. have a protein drink to replenish my muscles.. have a regular lunch of veggies & meat ... eat yogurt or something low cal for dessert or snack .. have a granola bar as a snack in the afternoon ... eat supper with family ( control my portion to about 3/4 of what I used to eat) ... have a jello or pudding with some social tea biscuits for dessert .... and thats my day of eating .. ( Basically haven't changed much except I eat more at breakfast that I used too ... but I put a little less on my plate for supper) ... Once in a while I get a craving of licorice or chips or even chocolate ... and I indulge no prob. ... but I limit it ALWAYS to not more than 3 licorice .. or half of a choc. bar never a full one ... as for the chips ... around 15 chips ... not more... ( Yes I count them .. or else i'd eat half the bag) ... I don't have a " specific" cheat day ... if I have the urge ... I eat it but always controlling the portion .. sometimes it's up to 3 times a week I " cheat" ... but so far hasn't stopped me from losing the weight ... and I NEVER feel famished ... I realize that I eat the junk food because it tastes good ..not because i'm really hungry. So hope this helps ... and I hope I can get the motivation to lose the last 5-7 pounds ... but if not .. i'm happy with what i've accomplished so far!
