Hey, I'm working on a limited budget and taking baby steps here. Don't worry, I won't blog my daily intake--I'm keeping a food diary on my PDA. But since today is the official start of the diet, I thought I'd put today's choices in, along with my weight, which was 280.4 lbs as of this morning. Gack! But on the plus side, I was up to 282.5, but the water must have sloshed out of my system in the meantime.
The good news is I feel alert and not hungry except when it's time to eat again. No blood sugar dips, etc. Wish me luck. My short-term goal is 20 lbs over 3 months, but eventually the idea is to get down to 150 lbs...a long way in the future. I'd actually be happy just to be under 200, you know? Wish me luck!
