This marks the end of my Live 12 Week (plus Bonus Week!) Coaching with Jorge Cruise and his Belly Fat Cure program, so I'll be left to my own resources now! These last 13 weeks have been life changing and I have learned so much about food, sugar, and artificial sweeteners. I am certain this is the weight loss plan for me, for life. If you have the opportunity to join one of his classes, I though it was a unique opportunity that I really enjoyed!
I spent the long weekend on vacation and skiing with my kids and friends. The good news is that I felt 1000% better this time than the last time I went skiing. It was so much easier without the extra weight and beign in better shape. I could literally pick up my kids and help them out when they needed it. The bad news is that we stayed with friends and took turns cooking. There was a lot of wine flowing too. I was very careful with my choices, attempted to limit myself to two glasses of wine. But every time I turned around it was filled up again, so who knows! In the end, I only maintained my weight this week, and have no loss (or gain) to report :-( First time that has happened on the Belly Fat Cure and I'm going to try and make sure it is my last!
I also didn't track my food this week at all. I thought I was passed needing to do that now. When I mentioned it casually to my husband, he said "But I thought that was the key to your success!", I realized I should still be tracking. So I will be tracking everything once again!
I had not planned to post my Before & After photos, I find it really embarrassing. But I realize my readers are in the same place I am and won't judge me, so here goes! Actually, that isn't technically a Before photo. I was about 4 weeks on the plan before I took the first one and realized if I didn't do it quickly it would be too late! As soon as I took it, I was so glad. It showed me exactly where the weight was and I was a little surprised. That extra weight couldn't hide any longer! So I encourage you to take a photo take today, if you haven't yet. And its not technically my After photo either, since I'm not done yet! So here are just a couple of photos of me ;-) The "Before" is dated 11/16/09 at 182lbs and the "After" is dated 1/19/10 at 169lbs, so just about 2 months time.
ps. If you sent an email asking for the Me & Jorge Tracker, I got it! I'll be making it available this week, thanks for your patience!
