Note: I am not claiming that the south beach diet is for you, it's simply what I chose to use for my weightloss. There are tons of diets out there and you should contact your doctor and discuss your weightloss wishes with them as well as what might be healthy for you.
A big thank you to Juanita for going on this journey with me! And a thank you to my Mom. She's doing something similar in Indiana while I am doing this in Florida. She's a great inspiration and has already lost 20 pounds!!! While I haven't had the best role models in my life, she continues to amaze me with all kinds of things!
More to come in the coming days as I jot down my highs and lows of this dieting process. Well, I shouldn't say dieting, I should stay lifestyle change process because that's really what it is. It is a lifestyle change. Crash dieting has been proven ineffective and the only way I can ensure that I will keep the weight off is to change my lifestyle.
One quote I want to leave you with is this:
"Be the change you want to see in the world." I don't know who originally said it, but about a year and a half ago, my friend Chris posted it as his status on facebook and I absolutely love it! If you want to see yourself getting thinner, you have to be that change and that's just what I am doing.
God bless you and have a great night :)
