Well, I've actually lost 10 pounds. I was not sure I could do it. Too bad losing is not as easy as gaining. But I've made a few friends and have had a lot of motivation from my group!

Today has been tough because I feel like I've been hungry all day! I'll have a good dinner and that will take care of it. Everything has been light up til this point today. Those doughnuts in the department over from mine sure do look good, but I would not want to log that in my nutrition tracker. And I've been excellent at logging because I don't want to cheat myself and that is the only person I'd be cheating.

Anyway, 10 pounds down! Six to 10 more to go and I'll be feeling a lot better about myself. Right now I'm very hesitant to feel good about how I look because I know how quickly I could shoot right back up there. I'll get more comfortable once I begin maintenance and see how my weight fluctuates then...

Well, I've been slacking off a little lately. My calories have been just a little higher (100-200) than they need to be, but I haven't had the enthusiasm to be on here as much as I did in the beginning. I've been logging my food more as a need to rather than than want to. Maybe it's because I'm working so much...2 jobs takes a lot out of you.

Also, it's hard to stay away from certain cravings...I LOVE ice cream. I don't eat it often but the craving is ALWAYS there. I want some very badly right now. It doesn't help that I'm very sleepy...it makes me want to slack off even more.

I need some caffene but do not like coffee or tea. I can either sacrifice some time from work and go to CVS or Walgreens and pick up some caffene pills or go with the extra calories and drink a Mtn Dew. Problem is that I don't really crave soda anymore and it makes me feel icky (lol...for a lack of better terms). Also, I'm at work and don't really want to sacrifice the time to go.


I hope your day is going better than mine right now! :)

Well, I've been doing this for 4 weeks now? I've lost nearly 5 pounds. The last week has been frustrating, I thought I had dropped to 140, but it was for just a brief period of time. Seems to be holding at 141 for the last several days...

I've been staying within my limits. Since I worked so hard on Sunday without keeping my calories within range (I was REALLY low), the pounds are holding fast.

Hopefully I'll have the energy to do Tae Bo tonight.

Wow, I guess can go overboard and not eat ENOUGH calories. I read several people's information about how they ate too little and didn't lose any weight!

Around dinner tonight, I planned on being very good - I bought fat free hot dogs (so I could eat the same as my family) and was going to eat broccoli and cheese INSTEAD of macaroni & cheese. When I added it all up, I was below my daily carloric intake. Oops. So I went ahead and ate the mac & cheese too...lol. Maybe I should have skipped the mac & cheese and had some chocolate instead...too late now!

I ate so late, now I have to wait another 1/2 hour or so before I can exercise. But I'll get it done!

Good luck!


Website Setup

This is my first personal website and I feel like I couldn't have found a better place to set one up.

Good luck to everyone!
