Diet Progress: Start of Week 2

I'm now into week 2 of my diet. While I have made some changes last week, I find that it is very tempting to fall back into old habits. I'm definitely monitoring what and when I eat, and still trying to keep everything in moderation... but it is more difficult than I remember it being!! :frown: Sunday Brunch: Coffee w/ half-and-half, homemade potato pancakes w/ sour cream Snack: Handful of butter toffee cashews, diet pepsi Dinner: Cheese stuffed baby peppers w/ sour cream sauce; potato pancakes; ...

Diet Progress: Day 4

No pictures today because I was out most of the day yesterday. :frown: Breakfast: Black currant black tea with Equal sweetener and yogurt Lunch: One slice of veggie meatloaf, one scoop of mashed potatoes, and a big salad I went out to eat for dinner to an Italian place last night. I can't tell you how much I really wanted to get the penne vodka, baked ziti, or eggplant rollatini, but I went with shrimp scampi over linguini; a lighter option when compared to heavy cream sauces and heavy baked ...

Diet Progress: Day 2 Recap

Yesterday I said that there would be pictures in today's post and I'm keeping my promise.

After breakfast, ... Continue Reading

A handful of pretzels was a midday snack. After that, I got side-tracked... :frown: I didn't get to the mall yesterday like I had planned on, but I caught up on some work ... Continue Reading

Steps to get into shape

Today is the first official day of my diet. Since the surgery in December, I have gained about 23lbs. :shock: Turning 21 in January and being in a happy relationship with someone who also loves to cook, eat, and drink didn't help the situation, either. :wink: At my heaviest, I was 230lbs and wearing a size 22/24 in women's clothing. This was when I was in 7th/8th grade, about 15 years old. Going into high school in 2003, I made some serious changes in my diet and exercise routine. I became a vegetarian ... Continue Reading
