Monday's week 1 weigh in

Are you ready for Week 1's weigh in???!!!!!! The fear of weigh in's are the beginning of exercising and eating right. I hadn't been to the gym in over a week and when i thought about having to weigh in on Monday, i dragged myself there on Thursday evening and this morning. I will be going tomorrow morning at 6am with my neighbor who wants to show me some weight training exercises. Apparently cardio is all well and good, but weight training or is it strength training or are they even two different things, is also good to do too so you can build muscle while you lose weight.

Also, I agree with what Phunkie said in an earlier post. You can't totally eliminate carbs from your diet and you shouldn't. Just more protein than carbs.

See you guys on Monday :) I am excited to see what you guys have been up to. Feel free to share how the first week went for you and what changes you have made. I don't want anyone on a starvation diet. That is not sustainable. Remember, this is a lifestyle change. Small steps and you will get to your goal and be able to maintain it eventually.


  1. It's dangerous to go completely without carbs. You need energy especially if you're gonna be working out.

  2. Veggies are is expected to load up on veggies and not have them as a side dish. More complex carbs like yams and sweet potatoes are to be eaten max 2 hours after weight training. other wise stick to veggies as your source or carbs
