eaglesfanintn Posted September 19, 2012 Share Posted September 19, 2012 Hi, A friend of mine (and running buddy) has turned me on to the program. He's about 2 weeks into it and has had a lot of success so I'm on board! I plan on starting on Saturday - I have what I need for breakfast and then plan on doing shopping that morning for meals. My story, in a nutshell....A little over 2 years ago, I weighed in at a hefty 285 pounds. I started eating "right" and exercising. In a pretty short amount of time, I was under 200. My lowest weight was about 196. And, I ran my first marathon in March - 9 months after starting my program. Since then, I've run 2 more marathons and I'm training for my fourth. That's the good news. The bad news is, I've fallen back into bad eating habits. If I wasn't still running 40+ miles/week, I'd be back up to my starting weight. The problem is that I let unhealthy foods sneak back into my diet and now I'm as addicted to the "crap" as I was before. I'm hoping that with a little will power and a lot of meal planning and eating right, I can get back down below 200 and be in the best shape of my life! I'm really excited to start - tired of clothes that were lose getting tight again and my workouts being harder than they should be. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions so I plan on using the forums to the fullest! Cheers! Scott Smith Cordova, TN Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
