Hi Tom. This email is a little long, but I wanted you to know what a change you've made for me. In your book (Burn The Fat) you said you wanted to hear our success stories.
Last November I joined Curves for Women, because I knew that I had to do something about my weight and health. My lifestyle had become increasingly sedentary. At 5'5" I was more than 100 pounds overweight (260), and at 48% bodyfat - that was just too much! I knew it was time to modify my eating habits, and I decided to start by cutting out junk food: ice cream (my favorite), cookies, cakes, white bread, chips, dips, etc.
Then I found your book, purely by accident. I love it. Finally I had some good, solid direction, guidance and focus for a lifetime plan. I am working your suggestions into my daily routine, including developing the spreadsheet to keep track of calories, protein, carbs and fat. I need to do this faithfully, because I think that I tend not to eat enough calories every day.
The routine is 30 minutes at Curves, which is fine for the beginning. I feel so much better after I work out. I haven't missed a day yet. I am working in an extra day of cardio at home, with an exercise tape, and I will increase the cardio as I go along. And I have my barbells and dumbbells ready to go, for some beginning weight training.
Even before I'd finished the first few chapters of your book, I wrote down my goals (which have been revised several times as I learn more) and I started to follow your advice about meal frequency and the protein / fibrous carb / starchy carb combinations. Even though I wasn't doing it completely scientifically, there was an immediate improvement.
After about a week, my husband noticed that I wasn't coming home from work in the evening and gobbling up everything in sight. I was eating normal portions, of more healthful food. He asked me what was going on, so I told him about your e-book and eating plan. He said, well, it's working. Now, a little over a month later, it's still working. My weigh-in on Feb 10 had me down another 9 pounds! And a whole BMI point. I'm looking forward to similar results this Wednesday, since my scale at home keeps going in the "right" direction.
The most amazing thing is that I don't have cravings for the junk that I used to eat all the time. I've mentioned it to several people, mostly because I am so surprised at how well this works! And I'm not even trying to "stay away from" any of the junk with willpower. I just don't want it. To me that's the most amazing part of it all. I thought it would be a lot harder for a 54-year-old to change her eating habits. (A bag of home-made chocolate chip cookies went stale in the cupboard!) Thank you!
