Tuesday - Oct 7, 2003

Today's weight:  191.5 -- down 2 lbs from yesterday.  People call it "waterweight".  I don't care, I'll take it anyway it comes.  I will NOT get to 200 ever again! 

Day 2 of being accountable to myself for everything that goes into my body.  I have a friend who helps keep me in line.  He "told it like it is" last night about one Hershey's Chocolate Kiss I had so today I gave the 4 I had in my desk to my co-worker.  I did NOT cheat today, everything I ate was healthy -- 2 boiled egg whites, 1 slice bacon and 1 slice cheese for breakfast.  2 cups tossed salad with 2 tiny slivers of chicken fajita for lunch.  I did have 2 fried tortilla chips, is that cheating?  Co-worker's birthday, she got a goodie basket delivered, I told her I was just going to look at her goodies, she insisted I get some, I said a firm NO.  Gooey chocolate cupcake left on my desk from a child's birthday, told my co-worker to take it immediately off my desk.  Would have felt horrible if I had eaten it.  Snack at 4 pm was a sugar free popsicle.  Supper was 1/2 cup leftover salad,  handful of porkrinds.  I "CAN" do it. 

Christmas goal is back to my comfortable 170 lbs.  If ever I get to 169 lbs I will probably cry...

My very 1st Journal Entry

One year ago I was weighing in at 170 lbs, wearing a very comfortable size 12 clothes. Today I weigh 193.5 and some 14's are tight; yet I can still wear some 12's.
Today I decided to get a grip on my eating, eliminating all visible carbs/breads/sugars. I did have a weak moment in the morning when I ate a Hershey's chocolate kiss that I found in my desk. Breakfast was 1/2 cup cubed ham and a slice of cheese. Lunch was 3 cups tossed salad and 1 baked chicken wing. I had very little supper, about 3 tbsps cottage cheese and a slice of lean deli ham. I've been fighting the "head hunger" because I am not "physically" hungry.
I am fixing my meals for tomorrow; boiled egg whites and cheese for breakfast, another salad with 2 slices deli ham for lunch. Made some s.f. jello for snack too :-)
