Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

My homage to the 14lbs that I lost on Allan’s DDDY Challenges. A watering can for the vast oceans of water that I have learned to drink and love every day.

I'm a good girl!!!!

Today was excellent for my calories. I'm right on track and feeling great. This afternoon there was a post lunch spread in the office kitchen.

I took 1 strawberry and 20 red grapes. There was a BEVVY of cookies, bars, squares... sandwiches etc etc etc.

There is that part of me that really wants that stuff. But I stuck to my plan and subbed my giant orange for the other fruit I took. By the time I went back in there for more water... they were all gone.

I do feel slightly child-like with food selection. I have to keep telling myself that "its okay to be hungry" and "your snack is in 15min - you will manage". Trying to sooth myself. I feel embarrassed saying that. That as a grown adult I have trouble dealing with being hungry.
....of course. Anyone looking at me is going to notice that right off.

We are changing our routine this evening and going out to our old group coffee nights. Its a buffet of people sucking back 4 or 5 frappes and mocha lattes as fast as they can. I am worried.

So, I stepped on the scale right before I ate, since I needed to know. Good news or bad news is better then the indifferent "this diet doesn't matter.. I'm having cake" attitude that was creeping in just mere minutes ago.

303.2 lbs

wow.... since Monday morning I've lost 3lbs. So I have my resolve back. Tonight I'll be getting the sparking water and enjoying the company of friends.

And when I get home, I'll still feel good about myself. Hurray!!

Change is hard. If you have to tell yourself 1,000 times what to do and not do then that is okay. Eventually you will not need to do that.

Congrats on the great day and awesome loss.

You're on the right path. Keep up the great work. A big milestone is right there on the horizon.

THanks all!

Going good. The My Fit foods is a massive help... but counting calories is the winner.

*bonks self on head* Yep...knew that!


Coffee group was excellent. I did have a biscotti and a water. I guess I'm a work in progress!
