I have blogged about loosing weight and dieting, trying to be healthier... bla bla bla. Well my boyfriend, Chris, and I decided to really take the weight loss thing seriously. We were both really over weight to the point were I was running out of clothes and becoming increasingly self conscious about how I looked. I felt fatigued and even my face was starting to look older.
We choose a lean low carb diet that alows for mostly, lean proteins, green vegitables, and some fruits. We eat breakfast everyday and small meals with snacks in between. No sweets, no bread, no potatoes or starchy vegetables in general. We take daily vitamin supplements and get weekly B12 shots.
I haven't felt this good in a long time! So far I have lost 12 lbs and Chris has lost nearly 20. I won't even sugar coat it. This diet is really hard! We stopped drinking alcohol and sometimes my sweet tooths are out of control. But at the end of the day, I feel so great and my clothes fit great or are big and that's worth the sacrifice in the end. Eventually, when we reach our weightloss goals, we will reintroduce more carbs to our diet. But I think I will have to adopt this style of eating on a permanent basis in order to maintain a healthy weight.
So how about before and after pics
My 29th birthday August 9th. One week before we started the diet.
This past weekend 30lbs lighter between the 2 of us!
Chris' suit is too big, when he's wearing clothes that fit him you can see his results better!
I'll post a follow up in 10 more lbs!
