Judgment Day!

Well October 10th was the last time I weighed and took my BMI(150.6lbs), this morning after aerobics I went to Bhagan’s drugs to get on that awful scale. These are my new stats.

Weight: 147.8 lbs
Height: 5 ft 4.5 ‘’ (so the scale say but I know I am 5ft 5- denial)
BMI: 25.2 – I am .2 over the ideal weight range.
My Ideal weight: 137 lbs (according to the BMI scale) - 10.8lbs to go!!

Well today is October 26th so that means that in 16days I lost 2.8 lbs, I wish I had lost more but according to all these health books around a weight lost of1-2 pounds a week is a healthy weight lost. So that is right with in the region. Lawd if I keep on this way I might reach my ideal weight a day before carnival...

I have to keep on reminding myself that this is suppose to be more about improving my eating behaviors by making small changes that last a lifetime, rather than sticking to a strict eating and exercise plan.

Hi there, those stats are great, you're doing really well!
I lost the most weight & fast, from eating low carb, Atkins, 3 yrs ago. Hubby & I ea. lost 25 lbs in 4 mos.
I'm not going to say it was easy at 1st, but once I got the sugar withdrawal over with, which took 1 week, I was good to go. We ate protein (meats & fish), eggs, cheese, non sugary veggies & salads. Then once you're 1/2 way to your goal weight, you add more carbs, like beans, berries. Then you're maintaining your weight & add more low healthy carbs like oatmeal. You can eat low fat low carb by eating no red meats, no chicken skin, no butter.

I know how more difficult it would be to eat low carb w a West Indian diet, all that rice, roti, bake, starchy roots like cassava, bc they make up much of the diet. :(
