I have gone down a swimsuit size. :) :) I am now 34/8 in Speedo!!!!!
I started "Operation Lean Down" after the November Calgary camp. The first 8lbs I lost were easy -- I stopped eating $hit. No more chocolate almonds from Costco, no more nachos and cheese, no more crap.
Then, with some tips and advice from my coach, I started to eat way more protein, fruit, and veggies. I think the key for me has been in finding what fruit and veggies I enjoy and incorporating easy snacks and recipes into my diet.
I've gotten creative in finding ways to add protein to my diet too: hemp hearts, cottage cheese, black beans, chick peas, and chicken breasts are my best friends. :) Oh yeah, and LOTS of good fat too: avocados, walnuts and raisins, olive oil, almond butter
Poor Mike is even more frustrated with all the veggies that are in the fridge now. He opened the door and said, "LOOK! The whole bottom half of the fridge is GREEN! AAARRGGHH!!!" Hahahahahahahahahahaha!!
So...from a high of 140lbs, I am now sitting at 126lbs....
