Gi Gi and I started a diet together on the 4th. We opted for a low carb diet since we had both had good success with it in the past. Being on a diet at the same time is unusual for us, as we usually are trying to lose weight at different times. It's actually more covenient this way. We're on the same wave length and eating the same foods.
We have each set goals and hopefully we can acheive our intended weight lose.
For me the low carb diet works because I don't feel like I'm starving all the time. One is still allowed to eat items that seem to satisfy that hunger for the 'bad stuff'. I usually don't drink enough water. This diet urges one to get at least 8 large glasses a day. Surprisingly enough, just drinking a glass seems to stop a hunger pange that pops up in the day.
A note for any of you who haven't reached the senior years yet, It gets harder to take off the weight the older you get. So, it would be wise to be at that ideal weight before you arrive in the golden years. X.
