I am looking forward to this next two weeks of going back to my South Beach diet again. I was so inspired by my friend who lost weight doing the Cohen’s diet. She started at 178 pounds and is now down to 118 pounds. How cool is that? I asked her and the niece of my godmother to write guest posts here. Hopefully they agree to do it so that we can learn from what they have undergone.
So just to give you a bird’s eye view of what I plan to achieve in a month’s time. I am actually getting ready for a summer outing for my grandmother’s birthday on August 4. Not that I plan to wear a bikini in front of my family (no way, jose!) But I plan to look my best in whatever outfit I plan to wear on that day. My husband does not get it. He does not get that we girls love to plan attires and ‘looking hot’ even if it’s in front of relatives, whom you normally get to see anyway.
So what is my plan for the next few weeks? First, to again go on the South Beach diet. Luckily, our helper is trained to prepare dishes for us. She was trained under 25 Mushroom’s kitchen (they hold classes in valle verde 5 for household help). Here is the facebook page! (25 Mushrooms Kitchen).
During my first round on the South Beach diet, I lost from 139 pounds to 132-133 pounds. The weight loss was actually noticeable. I got a lot of comments that I was losing weight. Here is a picture of my weight tracking app / weight loss app:
I gained weight today, since we experimented on the ‘griller’ last night and I attempted to cook steak!
Yum, right? But I was more impressed by mu husband’s weight loss. Check this out!
He started with a weight of 199 pounds and dropped to 185 pounds!
So I am pretty excited to lose more weight for this round. My base weight is at 133 pounds. I plan to bring this down to 125 pounds in two weeks 🙂 I think I will need to change my wardrobe already by then.
In these two weeks, I plan to run at least three times a week on the treadmill. My diet will end on June 24. On June 25, I will be going back to eating carbohydrates and will already start attending the Fitness Bootcamp of Coach Jim Saret: http://manilafitness.com/2012/05/07/coach-jim-sarets-fitfil-fitness-boot-camp.html
That’s my plan! I surely do hope it works. I’ll keep you posted!
