I posted this as a comment on someone's page and thought it'd be interesting to hear some of you opinions.... Please comment!

YOU CAN DO IT!
I've been "dieting" for 2-3 weeks now with a goal to loose 20-25 lbs by June 9th. I am officially down 10lbs!
I've found the best way is to be aware of your food choices and do you homework! Take a few extra minutes to compare the nutritional info. It may say "fat free" but be loaded with sugars, sodium or carbs. It's not always a clear choice or an easy one...
EXAMPLE: Strawberry Nutrigrain vs Oatmeal Cinnamon All-Bran Bar
120 Cal, 3g fat, 125mg sodium, 24g carbs (11g sugar + 3g fiber), 2g protein, O mg cholesterol
130 Cal, 5g fat, 105mg sodium, 21g carbs (9g sugar, 4g fiber + 8g starch), 2g protein, 5mg cholesterol
Which is the "better" choice? Not that easy is it? LOL
Personally I would choose the Nutrigrain Bar over the All-Bran.
Why? You ask...
BECAUSE: The first ingredient listed on the Nutrigrain Bar is "WHOLE GRAIN OATS" the first ingredient on the All-Bran bar is "WHEAT FLOUR"
With time this gets easier! YOU CAN DO IT!

Remember your goal is greater than your struggle."
Something I say to myself repeatedly.
I say this at 1:00 am when I've hit a road block and I am "this close" to finishing a design for a client.
I say this as I sit at my day job hating every minute of it.
I say this when I get no respect from my step-son.
Today I said this when I felt hungry.
My goals are all within reach, but still everyday I need to be reminded of that.
I will work solely for myself someday.
I will quit my day job someday.
My step son will respect me someday.
And most importantly I will healthy again.
When everything comes together, the struggle will seem insignificant. And I will be exactly where I want to be... and happy!

Tis the season!
I've been away - shopping - I don't have internet at home, so typically I blog, track, and count on my lunch. I live too far from work to shop after work , so I've been doing it on my lunch break to get it all done.
Looking back now, I can NOT believe it's been 21 days since I've last logged in!
So, Sorry to all my peeps if you feel I've abandoned you. I've still been actively trying to loose/maintain my weight. Just haven't gotten on here to log it. :(
The good news is I'm finally finished shopping, so you will be hearing A LOT more from me!
Originally, my goal was to loose 20 lbs by Dec 25th. To date, I'm down 10 lbs. I think I need to adjust my goal slightly. (10 lbs in 12 days seems a little unhealthy.) So I'll aim for 5 lbs.
...5 lbs in 12 days...The race is ON!
