No more potatoes!!
Okay, I did 3 days of taters and am DONE! It was not a success, but I was not perfect on it, to be honest. I drank alcohol (just some vodka, no fat) and I added a teeny spray of cooking oil into the pan the few times I fried them.

A nice surprise.
So, this morning I decided to take all of my measurements again. The ones that I log into my spark chart were alright, I guess. I lost an inch in my thighs, a half inch on the hips, half an inch at my waist. However, the one that is doesn't... Read more
Well I made it through the week!!! I didn't lose as much as I wanted, but anything is better than nothing. I managed to not buy lunch or breakfast since Jan 1st, so as I lose weight, maybe my bank account will gain weight! I am feeling very g... Read more
