Diet: week 3
The Monday after Wes' birthday I was seriously committed to cutting my calories. I have GOT to loose weight! Sadly, I've done this all before; but never-the-less I have 50 or so lbs to shed. It's been 2 full weeks and I am doing well. I lost 3.4lbs the first week, and 3.2 this past week. I am very happy with that, although I know it won't come off this fast for long! I am restricting myself to 1,200 calories a day, aiming for as many veggies as I can and tracking everything that goes into my mouth. I can eat whatever I want, as long as I stay under that mark for the day. I am using an online calorie counter, and checking in with a few ladies on the Diaper Pin... using the computer to hold myself accountable has been good for me. It's cold and snowy, and I would love to hunker down with some comfort food, but I know what I have to do! So, my goal is to be down to 150 pounds or so mid summer. Ill check in here and there, as it's going to be a long road!
