Day 1: Done!

Weight: 320.6
Total weight loss: .8 pounds

What a nice way to start out the week! I had a very good day eating-wise for my first day back on track. Pretty effortless, actually: I guess my mindset is just where it needs to be, and hopefully it will stay there. One thing I won't say to myself again, though, is, funny enough, never again. I know full well how easy it is to slip back into old, bad habits. I won't take that for granted anymore, which I think will really help in my efforts.

Psychologically I will be thrilled when I get below 320. Maybe tomorrow we'll see that!

Nope, not taking anything for granted anymore.

I made one little change to my arsenal from yesterday's post. I am actually going to stay with Livestrong/The Daily Plate for my food tracker. I tried FitDay yesterday, and one other online tracker, and they just couldn't beat TDP for the catalog of foods in the database. I don't want to have to waste a lot of time entering a new food's stats so I can count it properly -- and TDP has just about everything I have ever looked up before. I won't renew my Gold membership (I think it was $40/year), but just the "plain" one suits my needs fine. Plus, I can track my water intake, a feature which the others didn't seem to have.

One thing I want to do this week is have my boyfriend take multiple photographs of my body, as well as take measurements. I want to document my progress more thoroughly this time around.

Not much else to report at this point, except that I am feeling good so far. How are you doing?


  1. Congrats on the loss! You've got a great outlook!

  2. The measurements are a great idea. I haven't lost pounds since July (sigh) but I've lost inches, which is encouraging.

  3. Chews: Thanks! I try, it makes things a lot easier.

    Katie: Yeah, I like to be able to measure success in as many ways as possible! ;)
