1. Permanent weight loss is not about finding a quick fix diet, but making a commitment to life style changes that include nutrition and exercise.
2. Any weight loss program you choose must pass the “Can I eat that way for the rest of my life?” test.
3. The weight loss program you choose should ultimately teach you how to eat and be self reliant so you can make informed long term choices about your nutrition.
4. The weight loss program you choose should not leave you reliant on commercial bars, shakes, supplements, or pre-made foods, for your long term success.
5. The weight loss program you choose must have an effective exercise component.
6. The weight loss program you choose should attempt to help with motivation, goal setting, and support, but can’t be a replacement for psychological counseling if needed.

In over a month. D: I completely boycotted it when I started this thing to try to cut out as many carbs as I can.
But I need to bump up my calorie intake for the day so I’m treating myself to one of my favourite pasta sides :3 I’m only having 1 serving of it though. Not the whole package. That would be carb-overload.
I’m finding this low-carb, high-protein thing really easy for me. I thought it would be harder getting in so much protein and cutting out so many carbs. But it hasn’t been a problem so far. :3
Who knew reverse pedal would be so damn difficult!! D:
Overall: good workout. Definitely worked muscles I didn’t know I hadn’t worked before. My butt will definitely be feeling it tomorrow.. >.<
Total Burn: 535
Time for a protein shake.
Ugh. But they said they’d be open. Lammeee. I guess it’s the home elliptical tonight and 30 Day Shred.
Is your period coming? It’s okay to give into your cravings every once in a while. Otherwise you’re just going to end up binging on your cravings if you restrict yourself too much. Umm…. either go to your grocery and buy one of the Weight Watchers chocolate fudge single containers. It’s like 120 cal for a little tub. It’s pretty good :) Or break off ONE square of chocolate. And suck on it slowly so it melts in your mouth. Don’t scarf it down. Orrrr make yourself a chocolate milkshake. A tablespoon of cocoa powder + milk + ice. That should give you a small fix. Make sure you eat a meal before eating the chocolate/icecream, and down a large glass of water so you’ll feel full.
Cravings suck :( But everything is okay in moderation as long as you don’t start binging on junk food ya know? I hope this helps :)
I never do this lol but I would like to find some more weight loss blogs!
I need to get the word out about my blog :3
Aside from the usual tummy/thighs. My biggest problem area is my arms. I have such bulky arms. :( I see there are some over weight girls with lots of tummy/thigh fat. But their arms are pretty normal/slender. Totally jealous of those girls. I wish my arms were slender. Even when I do lose weight, I still know they’re going to be slightly bulky in the short sleeve region. Sigh.
