Burn Fat Burn!

Lindsey Pennington - Saturday, June 13, 2009
I started eating lowcarb on Monday, June 8.  I always feel like Mondays are great days to start something new because it is a fresh start to the week.  I've been doing well so far with really no challenges.  I bought the ketosis sticks at Walgreens and am officially in ketosis!!!  When you are in ketosis, it means your body is burning fat.  Burn fat burn!  I went to the doctor today and he agreed with my lowcarbing choice of dieting.  He told me to keep it up, which was the medical encouragement I needed to hear.  Since Monday I have lost 3 lbs.  I'm going to weigh in again on Monday, June 15 to see how much I have lost in my first week.  I'll keep you posted.

Consistency is the Battle

Lindsey Pennington - Thursday, June 11, 2009

I am a 25 year old female who wants nothing but to feel confident in my own skin. I've started my low carb weight loss journey to lose 40 lbs. I know it will be challenging, but I know I can do it. Please follow along with me in my journey and discuss any challenges that keep you from accomplishing your goal. The greatest challenge in losing weight is being consistent. How do you stay consistent? Consistency is the battle, losing weight isn’t.

Beginning of the Journey

Lindsey Pennington - Monday, June 08, 2009

I have decided to no longer make excuses for “just one more cheat day”  I am starting the journey to the new me.  I guess gaining weight seems like it happens out of no where, but we all know that it happens over time.  One day you wake up and realize, Wow!  when did I change into this body.  I don’t even recognize myself.  

You know that you’re skinny self is still in there, but at the moment your skinny self is hiding.  Now here’s the tough part…. gaining weight doesn’t happen over night, so you must remember losing weight will take time.  And we must not lose hope or quit.  We will get to the end of this journey, because we won’t give up.  

Does anyone else struggle with the beginning of a weight loss journey?  Please share your struggles and successes with your weight loss journey on my forum…..
