Weeks ago I would eat whenever I was hungry. What I was eating, I don't know. Bags of candy for starters. Now, I have been on the diet for one week - yeah! And I am still hungry in between meals, mostly in the afternoon, but I am starting to get the hang of this "dieting" thing we are all doing here.

Its amazing what sort of summer I had this year. It was filled with a fun trip to Disneyland, and lots of health problems. I have been dealing with Migraines and Heartburn, which led to Stomach Ulcers, which led to Depression and more Migraines.
I recently hit my low-point this past week, where I spent an entire day complaining and crying out all the pain. All the Negative Comments I had about my body size and how I feel lazy all the time; I got it all out.
Today, Now, and in the Future: I want to stop the negativity, the pain, and the complaints about my body size. Now is my time to be happy about my life because I am Choosing to Eat Right, Exercise, and Socialize More.
Now is my Time to Make a Difference in my Life.

Today is August 2, and I have been on the diet for approximately 2 weeks. Last week I got sick and was on bed-rest for 4 days while only drinking fluids. I was not able to weigh myself so I am not sure how much weight I dropped last week.
Since starting the program, I have lost 5 pounds. Yeah!
I am not able to exercise right now, due to my getting sick, so I can't track my fitness. But I have been counting calories like crazy! When I am away from the computer, I remember that 500 calories per meal is my absolute maximum, and have noticed that I eat approximately 330-400 calories per meal, which is great. When I first started tracking my calorie intake, I was eating 650+ calories a meal, so I am definitely eating less now.
Have a great week!

Since I tend to go on the computer at night, some of my blog entries may have the wrong date. I reside in California.

Today I officially started my new diet. I joined Spark People about 1 week ago to get familiar with all the amazing tools and fun stuff. For now I am tracking what I eat, but I hope to actually plan my meals for the week starting in August.
My family of 3 is filled with very picky eaters. So I told my fiance that I will always have spaghetti and meatballs on hand for him, and our daughter pretty much eats anything, as long as you can add a little spice to it. For myself, I love veggies and I need it bland. Maybe some parsley or oregano or basil, sometimes.
I measured my body today, which was a first. Just as I suspected, my arms are in good shape. I had my daughter take pictures of my body - the way I look completely relaxed (yikes!) versus the way other people see me (my belly is held in).
About 2 years ago I had a terrible injury that caused me to be on crutches for almost 9 months while my driving leg healed. I think it may have been during that time when I put on the extra 25-30 pounds. I was in so much pain and was finishing college, so my stress levels were high.
My problem with eating has not always been about junk food, cake or sweets. I only crave chocolate about once a month, and I don't like cake. So my overeating has always been of crackers, vegetables or chicken. I eat big portions when I should be paying more attention to my intake.
