Chocolate is my weakness too. DH brought home brownies today, and I was super proud of myself for having only one after dinner. It's so easy to go overboard on stuff like that!
Oooh, I'm so glad I found this thread- I was browsing in Health and Healing for a GFCF diet, and saw this.
I have roughly 20 lbs to lose. This summer, I did "Flat Belly Diet" and I did fairly well on it....I was making progress and then I got pregnant. I had a miscarriage around 9 weeks, at the end of October, and it's been difficult since then. So I'm going back on the flat belly diet now. I just ordered the book from amazon this morning (previously, I had been using books from the library), and I'm ready to go.
Luckily, I have a great public library that has a really good selection of exercise DVDs to borrow. I've been borrowing them, and trying to exercise 4-6 days per week for a half hour. I just did a really good one called "2 Week Turnaround Cardio" from Prevention. It was hard, but no complicated moves! Looking forward to checking in with all of you periodically.
Welcome! I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I don't think I've heard of the flat belly diet before - what does it entail?
*hugs* It's tough!
I am doing Couch to 5K too. Tomorrow I will finish week 6. I am finding running is making me hungry. DD is still nursing too but she's 20 months old now. I think I really need to force myself to eat even more veggies so I feel full. I have had this problem with running before where I don't lose weight. I won't quit though because i am getting more toned and feel good. I just need some more discipline with eating.
You know, I hear that advice a lot - eat more veggies to feel full - but I swear they don't make a dent in my hunger. Congrats on keeping up with the couch to 5k!
I'm down to 186.2 from 194, so I *should* reach my first goal of losing 10 lbs by the 22nd. I've been doing surprisingly good with my diet and I'm slowly adjusting to eating less.
