Now We're Getting Somewhere

Do you remember what I do on Saturdays?  Probably not, so I'll refresh your memory.  It's the day I go to my First Place Bible study.  Yeah... that.

So, you know how last week I had to really get myself back on board with the plan of being self-disciplined and choosing with my will to eat good stuff?  Well, that's exactly what I did. 

For the past week I've written down on my fact sheet/food diary all the food I ate, even when I went out to restaurants.  This week I will start counting the actual exchanges and tallying my bread, meat, milk, veggie, fruit and fat servings. 

Uh oh...I forgot about the 8 glasses of water a day.  Hmmm...can I ease into that, too?  I'm really into Vanilla Coke Zero right now, which leaves very little room for water.  I guess I still have a couple kinks to work out with my diet plan. 

On a final note, I'm pleased to report that it made a difference to rein in my appetite last week.  I lost about 1.5 pounds.  Now that's a step in the right direction.


  1. Yay!! Good for you!! That is encouraging!! I know what you mean about other drinks taking the place of water. I am working on transitioning away from coffee, and I am positively a fiend for Jasmine Green Tea right now. Have you tried Perrier, or some other fizzy water?

  2. Did you know I used to work for Weight Watchers? Yep. And anywhere between 1/2 pound and 2 per week is excellent. Be patient. What you're doing WILL work. Love your new background. Makes me feel like spring is near, but we Hoosiers know better, don't we?!
