Yep, I'm on a diet.  It's only been 3 weeks but so far it's going really well.  Wanted to jot down some thoughts so that later I can return and revisit. 

First I quit drinking my calories.  My mom recently lost a bunch of weight and as we were talking one day she made the statement "I don't like to drink my calories."  This really resonated with me.  I was a Mountain Dew kinda gal.  So, no more Mountain Dew.  As a matter of fact, I am only drinking water.  I have some reservation about drinking anything other than, like a slipper slope right back to the Dew.  I'm treating it like when I quite smoking.  With drinking though I might feel comfortable to have something other than water down the road but now it just seems like it's too tempting. 

It's all about the calories.  I found a site online to calculate how many calories I should eat daily to achieve my goal weight.  That was a start, I then found this app to track my calories and my weight.  The nice thing about this app is that it recalculates your calories as you loose weight.  I love this.  It's gradual.  It seem more fail proof.  Setting me up for success rather than failure. 

I currently don't eat a lot of veggies or fruit.  I don't dislike them but prep time is hard with having 2 small ones at home.  I know that this will be something that I will gradually incorporate more of in my diet. 

I have lost 6 pounds so far.  Not much when compared to the 60 I want to loose but it's some rather than none.
