I don't feel horrible about my weight, but I also want to show off what I got without showing off the muffin top and huge thighs :p
Soo, I'm changing how I eat and I'm going to start actually exercising instead of assuming that just riding will keep me in shape(:
I haven't read the whole thread yet to get all the tips, but I plan to make a diet plan with foods that'll keep me hydrated and boost my (godforsakingly) slow metabolism.
I'll be getting my weight and measurements today and keeping a notebook (:

Riding can keep you in very good shape!!! Eat small but frequently. ( I was blown away at how well this actually worked, should have listened sooner I reackon). Eat your protiens first (they are filling). Make sure breakfast is very high in protien and low in carbs. Save your carbs for after heavier workouts to help refuel your body. You body needs a certain amount of protiens to fat to carbs. If you deny your body any of the three you body will start storing insted of burning.
Once you get a good day to day routine. Then horseback riding will really help shed the pounds.
I am actually scheduled to be induced for labor on Aug 29th (hopefully he comes early) and then I have to have gallbladder surgery but hopefully after all that and I get a clear from the doctor and surgeon I am going to start doing some heavy training with a few of my horses just so I can use that as a workout program.
Even so much as grooming your horse burns a good amount of caloried. Riding at a trot/canter or doing obstacles burns and insane amount.
"An object at rest will remain at rest, An object in motion will remain in motion" I think that's how that goes. LoL
So keep moving everybody!!! Every little bit counts!!!
