Since the car wreck, I have really been trying to get myself back on track. I know I have said it a million times, but it’s not so much about losing the weight. It’s about eating healthy, staying active, and finding your balance. I eat healthy, but I have had a hard time with the lack of intense physical activity. When I was offered this sponsored opportunity with SheSpeaks, I thought what do I have to lose!
- weight: 122 pounds
- waist: 33 inches
- hips: 41 inches
15 pounds is what I have been trying to lose. I go through phases that I am an all or nothing type person.
But I don’t want to walk, I want to run!
I don’t want to do the modified version of my intense workouts!
There comes a time that I just have to accept my limitations and just put one foot in front of the other!
About The Fast Metabolism Diet
Haylie Pomroy has helped thousands of clients lose up to 20 pounds in just four weeks -all through the fat-burning power of food. Haylie says “This is not a book for first-time dieters. This is a book for last-time dieters.” Hailed as “the metabolism whisperer,” Haylie reminds us that food is not the enemy, it’s the rehab needed to rev-up your sluggish, broken-down metabolism and turn your body into a fat-burning furnace.
Ending Stats after 28 days:
- weight: 105 pounds (lost 17 pounds!!)
- waist: 26 inches ( lost 7 inches)
- hips: 35 inches (lost 6 inches)
The concept for this program makes a lot of sense. It’s divided into 3 phases each week with 2 days Phase 1, 2 days Phase 2, and 3 days phase 3. I think this is great for anyone since it helps you to eliminate processed goods and hard to digest food along with increasing water intake to help you get your metabolism fired up. That was a pretty basic summing up, but it gives you an idea of what to expect. Personally, phase 2 was the hardest for me. By week 2, I was getting better at it, but I felt really limited on what I could eat. Phase 2 requires lean meats and lots of alkalizing vegetables like leafy greens. I ate a lot of lettuce wraps during those days!
The Results are amazing! I am 5 ft 4 so every little inch and pound throws my petite frame off. For a 28 days program where I ate more food than I normally do (By A Lot!!!), I was pleased with my 17 pound weight loss to say the least. As with every program whether it be your diet or physical activity, dedication is key. Gaining weight and getting off track doesn’t happen overnight. For me it took the loss of my dad then a spinal cord injury in a car wreck a couple of months later. But I am not one of make excuses and I am done throwing a pity party where I take a back seat in my own life!
I highly suggest this program to anyone who needs a jump start to get started or even someone who has hit a plateau in their journey!
