The scale does move.

Over the past few months I have been fighting the same 5 pounds over and over again. I was working out hard and eating healthy but I was getting no where. Back to the books I went. I spent days pouring over books about nutrition, glycemic index, weight training, metabolism types, ect....

With 1 week left of P90X I called it a draw and stopped the program. I went back to Body for Life workouts. I have adjusted my eating by limiting fruit to 1 per day and no more than 100 grams of carbohydrates per day, no more than 50 grams of fat and at least 90 grams of protein. And it Works!

I have lost that 5 pounds plus 2 more. I have a ton more energy and my workouts don't take up half of my day. I may return to another round of P90X once I hit my goal but not until then. It is too intense and too hard not to carb load to keep energy up. It is not a weight loss program, it is a get in crazy good shape program.

So ,YAY ME!!!! I have 18 pounds to go until my first goal I set. I think I am going to aim for 5-10 more beyond that and then go see about plastics. I assume when my "apron belly" of loose skin is removed it will be another 10 lbs or so. I really can't believe I am so close. When everything is said and done my total loss will be roughly 200 pounds. Sometimes it is hard to wrap my head around that number. What a trip!

I have been reading your blog for about a year now, and let me tell you what an amazing inspiration you are!! I'm re-booting my wieght loss adventure for the 2nd time, starting somewhere around where you were wieght wise. Do you have any tips concerning the eating part of losing wieght? I'm struggling to eat the right stuff because my husband is incredibly picky and I don't have the motivation to either cook two different meals every night or motivate/force him to eat healthy as well.
Let me say again, you are totally awesome and congrats on such a successful journey!

Congratulations, Tiffany! I constantly appreciate not only how hard you work (which you do) but also how smart you work. You listen to your body's needs and study how best to fuel it and exercise it to meet your goals in a strong, healthy way. You are a roll model to so many others who are trying to lose weight.

200 pounds - that is truly remarkable!
Go you!

Great job hitting the books and making an adjustment. I also eat low-sugar low-carb, and it's just the way to go for some people.
