Subject: My 10 month results
In reply to: Karen 's message, "Re: First Monthly weigh/measure results" on 00:11:23 06/14/03 Sat

As of Wednesday, 10 months from when I started, I've lost 31.5 inches and 30.5 pounds. 25 of those pounds have come off in the 4 months since I started cutting back on my carbs and then doing the Curves diet.

AS for eating 6 times a day, it IS hard, but keep in mind that those meals can be a serving of peanut butter or sliced strawberries. I also usually have around a back of walnuts and some pepperoni sticks. really simple stuff that doesn't take any prep....and I have all of those things at my desk at work as well as near my computer at home (sometimes I can be lazy ;) And with eating in between meals, you end up not eating as much for the "big" meals. And one of those meals can be a protien shake, which is such little prep....my lunch is usually a simple salad and dinner is almost always cooked on the George Foreman grill with some veggies in a skillet. I buy almost everything in bulk so I have a variety to chose from all the time. It's working for me, despite my sore throat today, and the 20oz hot chocolate I had....so today isn't the best of day, oh well :)

Anywho, you should expect to lose 1-2 pounds a week on the Curves diet. That's a healthy rate and should aid in getting your body used to it so it stays off...anything much more and it will come back with a vengence when you go back to regular eating ;)

>>Those are AWESOME results. Did they give you the body
>>fat loss too? That's the one I concentrate on!
>>As for normal results, there aren't any. Everyone is

>>might be the same size starting out as another member
>>but she's doing yoga 2 times a week and cycles 30

>>Great job and be sure to keep us updated on your

>>today...not sure I've lost anything (phase 3 of the

>>or even...gasp....gaining, as i'm back to phase 1 now.
>> i'll report back later :)
>>Have a GREAT workout!
>>>Hi everybody,
>>>Well I had my first measurement today. I've lost 2

>>>bad I've been doing diet-wise...I think I'm going to
>>>try the diet (seriously this time now that the month
>>>of family birthdays is finally over).
>>>What is a normal rate of loss that I can expect? I
>>>about 30 lbs overweight.
