Saturday, August 30, 2008      2 comments

Well, I made it...kind of. I went to the pizza lunch and indulged in thin crust veggie pizza. I figured that was the best option available and I ate just enough to provide a satisfying meal. The best part about it is I did not allow myself ... Read more

Wednesday, August 27, 2008      1 comments

I think I have discovered my magic number - that is the amount of calories that I need to consume per day. SparkPeople tells me to shoot for 1200-1550. When I eat in the lower range of my limit, I find that later in the week I end up going ... Read more
