thank you all SO MUCH for your fabulous comments. it really did brighten my day, and motivated me a lot! i liked keep calm's idea of posting a pic once a month. that's probably what i'll do. i had no idea my change was so drastic until you all pointed it out to me! thank you! i love you all.
me and a couple of my facebook peeps (including katerina) are aiming for 10lbs in 2 weeks. i've come up with a new plan to help me succeed in this. you all can join in on the goal, the plan, or both if you'd like.
tuesday: 200 cals
thursday: 300 cals
saturday: 400 cals
sunday: 200 cals
i'll have to purge dinner probably every night to stay within my calorie limits, and get my calorie intake from other snacks. i can eat snacks at band camp that fit in my calorie plan, and tell zack i'm eating breakfast and dinner, so he'll stay off my case about eating lunch. i'm also going to drink at least a gallon of water every day. i've never really done the calorie plan diets like 2468, ABC, or SGD, so i'm a bit wary about this. if i don't lose 5lbs this week, i'm just going to go back to what i was doing but be wayyy more strict on the weekends. i think this could work though, because it'll keep my metabolism going and gives me wiggle room on the weekends. but like i said, i don't have much experience in this. might get some critique on prettythin tonight before i actually decide to do it. my other idea was to go on a gatorade fast again, i dropped a ton of weight when i was running off gatorade when i had that stomach bug.
stay strong, think thin, live ana
p.s. i decided my sidebar had wayyyy to much shit in it so i did some editing and condensing. ana's playlist, the links, and new "ana's cookbook" and "ana's bookshelf" are now under the link list "ana's world." the links connect you to my website, which has all the same links and more. i'd love to get more members on there.
