I was looking on-line for dietary advice and stumbled across the 12-week plan, which led me here. I'm starting the plan today (putting things off never helped anybody!) and am just looking for a little general advice. I'm not having any craving issues yet as it's rather early but I'm expecting them, especially once I start exercising.
I started gaining weight when I was 21 as apparently my metabolism slowed down. No more teenage junk-food binges for me! I've figured out how to stop gaining weight so now I need to focus on losing what I gained.
My profile picture is of me and my husband at my mother-in-law's wedding. As you can see I'm not a huge girl but I am a size 12 and over my healthy weight. I thought it best to do this now before I got so big it would take me a long time to lose it all and cause me some serious health issues.
So my question is; when did people hit their hardest points? Was it during the first week or further on than that? And does anyone mind letting me know how much they lost the first time they completed the 12-week plan?
Thanks so much for your time. It's good to know there are some supportive communities out there.
