Mission Statement

I will in general eat healthy, eat "normal" food, without gimmicks, pills, surgery, or trademarked diets. I will log all calories consumed and estimate calories burned on a daily basis. I will then be able to track my progress and estimate arrival time to my goals through My Food Log. I will also develop non-food rewards for reaching my goals knowing that reaching each goal is a reward in-and-of itself. I will not give up. I know that I will not be perfect but that I am making a permanent lifestyle change. The good days will out-number the bad days. I will not give up!


First Day of Mini-Goal

I have done well today so long as I stop eating now. Right now I feel full. I hope that carries over through the next 5 hours before bed time.

I actually have 19 calories to use if I just can't stand it, but what can I eat for 20 calories? Plain lettuce does not sound so appetizing. I guess this is really part of the push. Were it not for the heat, I would have the energy to fight cravings. I could go to bed early. That actually sounds like a great idea right now. I'll let you know how things went tonight on tomorrows post.

Just to let you know- I am reading your blog! I am looking for others who are also trying to lose weight and get fit. We can all use a support system and a high five every now and again.
Don't give up :)
