.... is always the hardest part for me - especially when dealing with dietary changes. Well let me tell you that today I am taking that step by starting Jorge Cruise's Belly Fat Cure Program. I am ready and oh so excited!!
Let me fill you in on how I got to where I am. My husband and I have 5 children (ages 2-14) and after the birth of each child, I would eventually lose the majority of the weight but would still be about 10-15 lbs. overweight when I became pregnant again. That is where I am now. Still trying to get the "baby" weight off after 5 babies (and did I mention that my youngest "baby" is 2 1/2 years old)?!?! I try to convince myself that it's because I'm in my 40's... but... I see women older than me all the time, having babies, and getting back into shape...so, I definently know it's doable!
I must admit that I have not tried very hard. The majority of our diet is pretty healthy, but, the sugar and carbs. that we consume are sabotaging all of my efforts. I really do believe in moderation but that is oh so hard for me to do when it comes to sweets. In fact, sometimes I'll eat sweets until I feel ill. It's like that's my trigger to stop. If a little feels good, than more must feel even better, right?? I know.... totally wrong! That is what I love about Jorge Cruise's Belly Fat Cure program. I am no stranger to this plan as I "tried" it for a few weeks last fall, with very successful results, I might add. I was able to include carbs and sweets in my diet as long as I kept to the sugar/carb values of 15/6 each day. I had more energy and really reduced my cravings for sweets. So what happened? Why did I go off the plan? I will post about that tomorrow as I don't wont to lose you with a super long first post.
Looking forward to blogging along the way so I can remember the details, be more accountable, and hopefully inspire others (which would make me so happy - and if I do PLEASE DO let me know). Thanks for being here!
