This is what I've done so far and what has happened.... support needed.
I have always been walking on and off but not in a commited way and not with any results. I had a bad pop/chips habit that I am proud to say I have overcome to a point. I have been drinking way much more water and I have never been a water drinker. I have actually started to order water when I have to eat out! So for 3 weeks I have only had 2 cokes and no chips. I started an undiet and an exercise regimen of my own invention 2 weeks ago. By undiet I mean that I don't want to just start eating totally different and then fail because I have all these cravings and feeling of deprivation or workout vigorously and feel entitled to a food reward as I have seen so many others do. I have been doing some sort of cardio daily and never the same dvd twice in a row. I have been doing strength training every other day and walking briskly 5 days a week. Little by little I have been eliminating bad things and adding good things.
This is what has happened. My feet look thinner. My toe bones are more noticeable. I don't fill up the cups of my bra. My neck looks smaller. I have I vertical indent on each side of where a six pack would be if I had one so my stomach is no longer round. My waist band is loose and I noticed my yoga pants actually cover my whole behind and no longer dip as deep in the back as they used to. I haven't weighed myself at all. I didn't think to take a before pic until today so I can't actually compare my progress so far but I guess it will be good to see later. I wish I could say more has happened. Does this sound like progress? skinny toes lol? Does anyone know any good leg exercises since most of my weight is in my legs, I'm not kidding. I have rolls of fat that look like mashed potatoes on my thighs. I'm bottom heavy. My arms are fine. I have always had big legs.
