With my half marathon behind me now by a couple of weeks, it’s time for me to move on to my next goal in my quest to get FAB. The way I see it, I got FIT (pretty much), but I am nowhere near as FAB as I want to be with these 20 extra pounds lingering. How unfair is it that I’ve trained for and ran a half marathon, and only weigh two pounds less than I did the day I brought Lydia home from the hospital 10 months ago? Ridiculous! What I’ve started to do is a little bit controversial, but it’s worked for me in the past, and it seems as though it’s working again.
I have started following a low-carb diet. It is one thing, short of starving myself, that I know really works for me. I don’t intend for this to be the way I eat for the rest of my life. My plan is to do this for about a month to kick-start my weight loss. And, let me tell you, so far I’ve had really good results. After the first week, I’d lost 8 pounds. After the second week, I’ve lost a total of 11 pounds. Not bad for the first two weeks. It has totally motivated me to keep going. Wish me luck!
