Seriously though...how are you supposed to stick to a diet when everyone around you is eating??? At work there is bags of candy on the table. You know the feeling, one piece won't hurt anything. HA! One piece turns into 2, then 3! UGH! And at home, I'm trying to eat low fat, but the fridge is full of rice and beans. I've been doing really well on the soda thing. I have had a few diet sodas, but I was a ridiculous Pepsi drinker, so I figure this is an improvement. Hmmm maybe that's my problem. I am trying to "improve" and not "conquer".
Guess I'm not doing too bad. Though I've been trying not to stand on the scale (anyone know where I can get a lock for that thing? LOL) I seem to have dropped a few pounds this week. Granted, I know that is not true weight, only less bloating, but hey I feel a little lighter. It's nice to know feel bloated all the time!
I'm not getting discouraged though. I am still determined that this is going to work. Maybe I'm killing myself before I even start, but I am taking the approach that if I am TOO strict that I'll fail. Yeah, that does sound like I'm falling behind the eight ball in this diet thing. Well, guess we'll see. I'm not taking my true weight until Wed (a week from my start). Truth will be told then.
