I used to be a very sexy little chica...I had a tiny little waist at 26 inches and some huge boobs that made my bod something betty boop would have envied, I even did a bit of modeling. Then I don't know I guess I just got caught up in life and being a mom and I just didn't really give any effort to my body any more...I started skipping breakfast and eating really late at night and I quit working out all together and now 7 years later I have gained 15 inches on that tiny waist and my boobs have reached a ridiculous 38 J. I weigh 200 lbs and I look awful but I have finally taken notice and decided to do something about it. I have started a new diet called the ideal protein diet which has worked well for a couple people I know. Basically you live off of protein packs 3 a day plus 4 cups of veggies and one 8 oz serving of actual meat a day on average most people lose between 4 and 7 lbs a week. It shuts down your pancreas and forces your body to absorb it's energy from your fat, leaving your muscle mass in tact, it specifically targets that pesky waist and back fat...I am not sure that I can get back down to the weight I was before but I am shooting for 135 which is a pretty healthy weight for  my 5 ft 5 in frame which means I need to lose 65lbs...my goal is to have it done by the end of July and I plan on keeping a little journal going on here to keep me motivated. Cheating is really bad on this diet because ANY carbs or sugars that you eat will cause your pancreas to turn back on and it is a two week process to shut if back off and get back on track so if I want to reach my goal in time I absolutely can not cheat...I am a bit scared, I mean these last few years I have developed some horrid eating habits and my husband although very supportive of ME eating better has kind of refused to change any of his own bad habits to help me out. So I get to sit here all day and look at a full cookie jar not to mention the mt dew sitting in the fridge and the Cheetos in the pantry. I know it is all about self control but I am only on day three and those things are just staring me down. I can do this though...I have to I am tired of hiding from cameras at family events because I don't want to see myself in pictures and I want to feel sexy again so here I go!! I will post again in a week or so...wish me luck ladies
