Quoting Tristan's Mommy!:" that is what I want. I don't want to look sick, but not have too much fat"
Right now I'm in the beginning of my weight training again. It builds muscle to burn the fat. I'm down at least 20 pounds so far. I have 40 to reach goal. I can help if you'd like! I'm on a diabetic diet. Which should be everyone's, actually. I do the juice thing or get Glucerna Shakes for meal replacement. I had a huge issue with metabolism. I hardly felt like eating, but still gained weight.. All the freaking way to 218. Lol. The best thing that's helped me is eating as little meat as possible and replacing my protein needs with different kinds of beans. I have a large variety of veggies and natural foods. I eat all the freaky smurf people see at the market and have no idea what it is. I have to have a minimum of 2000cal per day now. Before it was only averaging 1100. I workout all day long and it's easy. I try to find ways to do chores and turning them into random squats or reasons to jog/walk/run. I constantly play soccer with my kids. Having an active farm life helps too. I'm diabetic/hypothyroid. A completely healthy person can lose more than me in the same amount of time
ETA: the only things that have changed in 2 years is that I stopped breastfeeding my 1 year old a couple months ago and double calorie intake with balancing my carbs/protein/sugars. I rarely drink sugary stuff and have an addiction to weird teas lol
