Results of My Seventh Month on CALP

LowCarbForLife's picture

October 3rd was weigh in and measurement day but I postponed it until October 4th. I really enjoy getting my results once a month but had to be somewhere at a certain time and did not have enough time to get it done.

I am very pleased with my results and absolutely love CALP for allowing me to regain complete control over when and how I eat. The other day my Dad actually commented on my weight loss and that had me feeling pretty good about myself.

Every time my husband hugs me, which is constantly, he tells me how much I am shrinking and how beautiful I am. He has always been loving and affectionate and continues to do a wonderful job of building my confidence.

Since I have never made my measurements public due to the fact that it is extremely embarrassing to me to admit what they were when I began my program, I am so proud of the results that I am willing to suffer the humiliation.

I began the Carbohydrate Addict's Lifespan Program (CALP) on March 3, 2008 without any knowledge of my beginning weight. I knew I wasn't going to step on a scale any time soon so I decided to measure myself for the first time on March 8, five days after I began my program. My results are as follows:

CALP continues to be a very easy program for me to follow. I know that I can have anything I want during my Reward Meal (RM) as long as I begin with a salad and eat the same amount of protein, vegetables, and carbohydrates. There is absolutely no way I can overindulge in carbohydrates as long as I follow the rules and concentrate on eating the proper proportions.

About me

I'm Teri and I am 54 years old. I have been fighting my weight since I was fourteen, dieting my way all the way up to 236 lbs. I started my weight loss program on March 3, 2008, and at that time I was unable to get into the largest pair of jeans I owned, size 18W. I have lost close to 100 pounds, and I now wear a size 4 jeans. My diet and exercise program have me feeling better than I could have ever imagined and I did it without starving or depriving myself in any way.

I am getting myself into better shape and my goal of becoming fit and healthy is getting closer every day.

Here's a link to my Progress Photos.

Current Diet Type
