January 2

I made it through today but it sure wasn't easy.  I drank a lot of water, and was careful to follow the eating plan but all I thought about was FOOD.  I took one of my dogs for a little walk in the afternoon and wore my pedometer.  I got 3200 steps in today which is amazing for me.  Getting past the craving part is going to be the biggest hurdle for me.  I use food for comfort, even when I am not hungry.  I love to eat snacks in bed watching television, which is so bad.

Today I took my measurements (gasp!) and wrote them down in my book and also taped a small copy to my bathroom mirror as an incentive.  My brain didn't think I was that big, but that tape measure was an eye opener.  I got on the scale the very first day, but was afraid to go near it today.  Maybe tomorrow.

  1. You are doing great. Just the courage to get the tape measure out and get on the scale is a huge feat. Coming from a family that loves to eat, I know it is hard when you start craving things.
