Baby steps…

First off…

Thank you for the kind words and encouragement. Things always seems easier when you know you have others rooting for you for some reason.

I am starting a food diary today. I won’t share that here except occasionally I think though. This is something I struggle with and I don’t think it’s something I want played out detail by detail here. When I want to share it, I will. And when I don’t, I won’t.

P.S. The only thing I’ve had so far is 8 oz. of 2% chocolate milk. I’m going to start plugging away with the water. I may need Depends if I drink as much as I should in a day.

MY goal at this point is 10lbs. Doesn’t seem like much does it? My overall weight goal loss is 20lbs. To be honest…I’m okay with some meat on my bones. That super skinny look is gross in my opinion. I don’t want to see bones through clothes. Which is why my goal is 20lbs. I will then see how I look and feel and decide if that’s right for me or if more needs to be done.

I know if I cut out pop completely…yes the caffeine free kind that I drink now…I will probably lose 2lbs of water weight. What else to do?

Healthy snacks. I read if you are hungry, you should eat. It’s what you eat that makes a difference. Which makes sense right?

If I were to eat 2 snickers, I may be satisfied but where is the nutrition? The healthy choice?

So for snacking, how about  a small orange or tangerine? Or how about a couple bites of watermelon?

I TEND to go for the sweet stuff which is why I mentioned fruits.

I also LOVE salty stuff. L.O.V.E. it people. If salty was super healthy for you, I wouldn’t be struggling with weight stuff at all. So what to do when I am hungry for something salty?

5 olives.

I read that on self online just a second ago.

So instead of eating 15 olives…which I could totally do and be bloated like I was 6 months preggo, I need to limit myself.

I know I can do this. I will do this.

AND YES…I will be back to my “normal” blogging! Pictures and all.

I just wanted to say thank you.

In a really…really…long post.

Some things will never change I suppose!
