following: dcgal8's own diet
performance: losing 0.1 lb a week
Hi! I am dcgal8!
I am 30, F, 228 lbs., size US 18 on top, 20 on bottom. I'm looking to get back to what I call my "fighting weight".
But more than the weight loss, I want to feel healthy and fit again. I have been going to the gym on and off for the last year, and my energy level has increased dramatically, even if there has been no change in weight. I also don't get headaches and backaches as often anymore.
I am also trying to cook at home more often, and I love trying out new recipes and kitchen gadgets. Of course, some of the recipes are not diet-friendly, which means sweet treats mysteriously appear sometimes in my office's break room. :D
