Thoughts: Really disgusted with myself today, saturday and yesterday I 'binged' on CRAP! Pizza, Reeses, Skittles, Muffins, Bottlecaps. But what is important is that I realized the error of my ways and am once again RE-COMMITING to losing this weight, staying on plan etc. I plan to have 3 'protein' days if I can so I can 'kick' my body/butt into fat burning gear yet again....restarting the LFL/Rite Aid Weight loss plan today for the umpteenth time...this time I REALLY am committed though...I know you've heard that before, but I have to be...weight in this am at 217.6# SICKENING considering I was 208 on Friday!

So for day 1 the object is to have a "Daily Action Plan" in which I record all my meals, my fluids, pedometer, and plan to overcome today's obstacles. Well so far so good. Except I forgot my pedometer at home today. But I know I've been walking around lots so I know I've got in my 'walking' (10,000 steps) so far at work. It is also recommended BEFORE I eat ANYTHING to KNOW how many carbohydrates are in it! I think this is a valuable step as I often just eat then get disgusted by the carb levels. My goals why on the weight loss mode of this diet are: Here are some key parts to remember each day of the plan.
  1. Weigh yourself every morning.
  2. Drink 80oz of calorie-free fluids every day.
  3. Eat a meal or a snack every two hours.
  4. Strive for at least 30 minutes of walking or other physical activity every day.
Today's Affirmation:
"I AM taking the first step toward better health!"

End of day note: I did it! I actually stuck to my guns...even made my hubby rice-a-roni for dinner and WAS NOT even tempted! YEAH! Although after I got home from work I was 'munchy' munchy but I resisted temptation...even had a bag of m&m's in my hand, and I put it back in the cupboard. SO NOT worth the 'moment' for later on my hips....or as my hubby said when I told him that I gained 9# in water etc, he jokingly/lovingly said "Yah and it went all to your butt!" OUCH! Good thing we have a good relationship and can 'jest' like that with each other.
