this is a really good idea. thank you all.
since July 11 I’ve been dieting and walking/jogging 5-7 days a week for 30 minutes each time. I’m staying away from bread, rice, pasta, sugars, general starchy things, and fried things, and have increased my protein intake. yes, I have had cheat days, but they haven’t set me back too much. I started at 183.8 and am now 155.8. my goal is 125 as of January 31.
I wish you all luck and the determination/focus to get to your goals!
