These last few years of eating, binging, eating even more, failed diets and even greater eating still have had an effect on my body. Later this week, I'm going to take 'official' measurements, but I already know I'm over 205 pounds and way too much body fat.
During these next 3 months, I'm not planning a trip or doing anything that could distract me from making a transformation in my body and mind. So, no more excuses. I'm always hopeful when I start a workout program or eating plan, then I tend to lose interest or motivation. I've made a commitment to finish strong this time.
Before I actually started the transformation, I've been doing the Base Camp program in the book. For 12 days, I'm eating no wheat, no cows milk or sugars. Plus, I'm eating tons of veggies, fruits, nuts and healthy meats - as much as I want. I'm sleeping 7-8 hours a night. I'm also drinking tons of water. Plus, I'm doing a light workout 3x per week just to keep myself fit. The routine is meant to reboot your system and prepare it for the Transformation phase.
I'm on Day 8 of Base Camp. Days 1-3 were tough. I could feel my body weakening for lack of sugar and breads! I was craving junk and fighting off weakness. I also couldn't sleep well the first few nights. I slept 7-8 hours, but it was light sleep. Now, I'm coasting. I can much more easily resist sugars. I do crave breads and cereal every now and then, but I'm confident I will complete the task. I'm sleeping like a baby - snoring away!
I might start a link on my page to go directly to the pages that cover my transformation. Look for that link somewhere on this page sometime soon. I will post my measurements, photos (if I dare) and updates regularly on my progress there. Please send encouragement to me along the way...I could use it.
