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.
