Week 1

During week 1 of my diet, I lost 3lbs.  Not too bad considering I am PMSing like crazy and indulging in all sorts of chocolate and not so good food.  Oh well.  I would like to lose twice that next week.  You're supposed to lose a lot the first week but I didn't do so well with sticking to my rules.  I need to stay away from the the sugar.  And try to work out.  I know I can do this, I've done it before.  I really just need the motivation.  I think I am going to get a picture of a wedding dress and put it on the fridge so I think twice before eating.

Anyway, on to week 2.  Wish me luck!

Diet Begins!

So I started my diet yesterday.  I'm not following any one specific diet but I am trying to adhere to the basic health rules when it comes to eating.  These are the "rules" I have created for myself:

1) I'm trying to cut out all carbs and replace them with whole wheat. 

2) I'm cutting out candy.  Not all sweets but specifically candy.  I bought a package of Splenda and whole wheat flour so I can attempt to bake healthier goodies.

3) I'm eating more fruits. 

4) I'm trying to have a protein (meat, beans, tofu) and veggies with my dinner every day.

5) I'm cutting out soda.

I'm hoping that with all of these rules in place I will be able to slowly get the weight off.  I'm not looking for a quick fix, I just want to get down 40lbs by the end of 2011.  It's definitely possible...I've done it before.  Wish me luck!
