An Intro to my Diet Plan

On my birthday, at 4am, my boyfriend brought up my favorite ice cream cake and sang happy birthday to me! After serving me a slice, he pulled out a ring and proposed! I am so excited to begin my life with him and I want to begin our new life with a renewed self image. So, here I am, one of those brides, getting in shape for her wedding!
This page is as much to keep myself accountable as it is to help other brides on their journey (or those who just want some down to earth, friendly dieting tips) I am not an expert (although, sometimes I feel like one), these are just lessons learned from my experiences.

New goal reached!!

Whoo hoo! so after last post, I was pretty down about my progress.  I took a week off of exercising to rest my muscles and guess what?  It bolted me out of that slump pronto!!  I dropped the last 3 pounds to reach my 150 goal!!

Yay!  So, what have I been doing this week you ask?  Staying active!  Even though I'm not working out, I'm up and moving around, less time on the couch and more time playing with the dogs and goats in the yard!  For food?  I'm averaging under 1200 calories a day and staying VERY full with veggies and fruit!  High fiber breakfasts get my day started off right and my fave snack of the week is caramel rice cakes!  Great for my current sweet tooth!  So, if you hit a slump, change up your routine and don't get down on yourself.  If you need a chocolate bar, have it! (but just one!)
