So, didn't realize it had been four days since I blogged last. I kept telling myself 'Oh, I should put that in my blog' and then just never did.

Well, to start off with, I am down 3 pounds so far. I have to admit that it feels good to keep track instead of just guessing based on how I feel. Of course I want the weight to drop off sooner, but I know that this is the healthy way to do it. I've been told many times that it took me half my life to put the weight on, I can't expect it to all be gone the next day. Takes time to fix what it took time to make. This time it will be different though, I can tell. I've got someone to do it with and stay accountable to. And I have you guys!

It feels good to have made a commitment to moving again as well. My leg has been holding up okay so far. The chair exercises are wonderful! I do think I pushed it a teensy bit this weekend with an extended working Saturday and grocery shopping yesterday. So I am sore today, but not to the point where I can't do something about it.

I've also noticed, and Andy has said this as well, that it seems like we have been eating out less since we started this. I think because we are thinking about what we put in our mouth not just the fact that we are hungry.

I am still having some trouble with my eating though as I seem to get full fast, but then hungry again just as fast. I have been eating healthier but there are still some unhealthy things I have such as the occasional soda or dessert. I'm thinking this may be causing blood sugar spikes and crashes, hence the full/hungry/full/hungry thing. Will work on this in the next week.

That's all for now. Thanks for reading.

    So true about having that soda and then feeling hungry after it. The sugar will do that to you and if it is artificial then that will make you even more hungry and that is something that the makers of those sugars will not tell you. I know about it because that is what it did to me. I stopped it and the craving went away and along with some of the pain that I was having too..

    I seem to do well with eating smaller amounts but doing it 5-6 times a day. I really never seem to get hungry doing that. It helps prevent blood sugar levels from dropping and spiking also.
