The Supermodel Plan (aka - how exercise is gonna kill me)

In January, I made my annual resolution – lose weight. Yeah, I know, real original. Generally, this resolution lasts until about January 2nd, give or take a day. This year, however, I’ve stuck with it. Or maybe I haven’t exactly stuck with it, but I haven’t completely given up on it either. I’ve been making careful food decisions, choosing vegetables over cookies, fruit over pasta, sawdust bars over chocolate. Despite that, the weight has been coming off pretty slowly so I finally came to terms with the fact that I can no longer count brushing my teeth and fastening my sandals as exercise. I need to add actual exercise – the kind that makes you sweat and scream in pain – to my repertoire.

I admire your determination. I just wanted to add that I made the same commitment this year and after binging on my mother-in-law's Christmas cookies I had gained WAY more than I ever remember weighing.

With a low carb diet and grudgingly adding a couple days of Bikram yoga, I've lost almost 30 lbs and went from a size 14 to a size 8. I weigh less than I weighed in high school.

I finally have enough confidence that when my husband comments on how thin I look, I say vainly, "I know, right?!" LOL

Good luck and kudos for taking time for you!

I've been doing the Lose It app and OMG I feel like a whole new person. It's amazing how not eating a ton of crap helps you lose weight haha
