It's a new day....A beautiful gorgeous day!

I know I've said it before--and I'll probably say it again and again and again...I am going to get back on track.

I got up this morning, and decided that I am going to stick to the plan. I am going to stay under my calories--and maybe even start weaning myself down from 1500 to closer to 1200. I am going to do my best to control my porition sizes. I will be asking for a small bump fill this month at my appointment next week. I am HUNGRY all the time, it seems like. I sit and snack and eat junk that I have no business eating. Even when I'm NOT hungry--bad habits have snuck back into my life and I didn't even KNOW it!

My company is starting a month long walking challenge, starting today. I registered and I have my pedometer. The goal isn't that hard--1 mile a day, 5 days a week. I do that anyways, with my daily morning walk. So I set my own goal for me this month--try to do a minimum of 2 miles a day, 5 days a week. So, 10 miles a week in 7 days. That should totally be accomplishable!

I did 1.5 miles this morning! And I still have ALL DAY to get more walking in. I can walk at lunch, and I already know that I'm taking the bus home tonight which means another .75 miles! I'm already on the right track! And I'm having my Unjury iced coffee (180 calories) for breakfast. I'm going to try to not eat solid for breakfast--just stick with the coffee this week to see if it makes a difference. I'm still getting protien (28 with using Silk). I've got my journal and I will write everything that goes into my mouth in the book.

I'm still afraid that I will still be showing a gain next week when I go for my check in--but it is what it is.I'm not going to let it deter me. I am the one that is responsible for what success or failure that I have. Noone else can control what goes into my mouth except for me. And I am going to make better choices. Starting today.


  1. I love when I see people taking responsibility for their success and failure. This is just a tool. That's why it really gripes my ass when I hear people say LB or WLS was the easy way. You reminded me today that each of us is responsible for where we are, and I think I needed that reminder!

  2. such a perfect post for me to read today. I am restarting the 5 day pouch test because I've reinvested myself into carbohydrates and its stunted my weight loss. That list is perfect. exactly what I needed to hear today.
