How I loss 30 pounds in 2 months
and kept it off. Its been about 9 months now and I have only gained back about 4 pounds!!
I have always been fairly thin weighing in at 130-145 most of my life. This soon changed after my first year of college. Packing on those freshman 15 started a serious downward spiral. My sophomore year I started to pick up weight like never before. I started my sophomore year at 150 pounds and as you can tell by the pictures, I was up to 166 by my junior year. My appetite increased drastically and I started to get depressed about my size. I saw these pictures of me and was disappointed in how I'd let myself go. So fed up, frustrated, and tired, I decided to join LA Weight Loss my senior year. Didn't work! I tried Atkins, that gave me headaches...didn't work! I tried South Beach, it was too much work... didn't work! I tried excessive exercise and pulled a muscle... didn't work! I tried starving myself, I became too tired... didn't work! Then I was introduced to Dr. Beale.
WOW! I was able to control my appetite, while developing healthy eating habits. . I've been struggling to get out of the 150's for 4 years and now I'm in the 130's. I've gone from a size 7/8 to a size 3/4 in less than 2 months! I LOVE IT!!!"

My Maintenance Plan: I am currently in the maintain phase of the diet, which means I can basically eat whatever I want as long as I dont gain. I stand on the scale everyday, if I gain even a Â¼ of a pound I am back on the diet plan. This way there is no excuse for me to gain the weight back. No-"The weight just crept up on me" During the week I follow the low calorie diet and drink 64 oz. of water. Weekends are a free for all, I basically eat whatever I want be it pizza or ice cream. This has been working for me so far, it has been 6 months and I have not gained a single pound. Well, my weight fluctuates between 130-134, which is fine. I stood on the scale this morning and I am at far I am still at 132. Oh, I hate working out so all of the weight was loss by following the diet plan. I plan on joining a local gym this winter so I can tone up.
