Sept 18

For breakfast today I had a bowl of cracked wheat cereal w/pumpkin pie spice, brown sugar and light vanilla soy milk. For lunch I had a good salad. It was romaine lettuce, tomato, edamame (soy beans), canned chicken breast, muenster cheese cubes and fat free Catalina dressing. For snack I had a muffin and a piece of whole wheat pinto bean bread with a bit of jam. Dinner was a breakfast casserole. It had eggs, cheese, tatortots and bread with ketchup on top. I had applesauce on the side. I drank only water today and worked out for 30 minutes while I watched Supernatural :)

Sept 17--- still doing great :)

Today for breakfast I had 2 whole wheat pancakes w/ a peach sliced on top and light whipped cream... I was surprised that the whipped cream only had 1 gram of fat, 15 calories and 1 gram of sugar per serving. Light syrup has 100 calories and 24 grams of sugar. I was happy to know that whipped cream and fruit were the better choice and much yummier. Lunch was a ham & cheese sandwich w/lettuce, tomato & pickles and an apple. For snack I had a piece of dried sweetened papaya. I also sampled two california rolls, a couple of cubes of cheese, a chip w/ hummus and a little thing of soynuts at the store this afternoon. Dinner was baked beans... pinto beans, hamburger, bacon bits, cheese. Lettuce and corn went on top and I had a piece of cornbread on the side. I've had lots of water today and I exercised for 35-40 minutes. Yeah.... things are still going great. I gave my cookies and chips that came with my lunch to my coworker. I passed on the chocolate cake and ice cream someone brought me at work and didn't even look at the brownies Nina made tonight. I'm am surrounded by junk food at work almost every day, but I've been doing really good at Just Saying NO :)

Sept 15th

I did pretty good today. I didn't have any junk, although I did eat a small piece of cake after dinner for my brother's birthday. I made it with dried fruit and whole wheat flour though, so it wasn't any worse than a muffin. I worked my abs for 10 minutes this morning and 20 minutes last night. They are so sore. I'm going to do another work-out tonight. I haven't had that much water today, so I need to drink more, but overall it was a good day :)

My goal is to lose an inch to 2 inches on my waist by Halloween! I know I can do it!

So Sad

I measured myself yesterday, and my waist is back where it was before I started losing weight. My hips, thighs and arms are still smaller, although they also have grown. I will not eat anymore sweets. I did it last year and I can do it again. Also, no pop, juice or lemonade. Just water to drink.

I exercised last night for about 30 minutes. My tummy and thighs are sore. Yeah!

For breakfast today I had a granola bar, a banana and a bottle of water. Lunch was a big bowl of vegetable soup, 2 pieces of whole grain bread and a slice of monterrey jack cheese w/ of course another bottle of water. It was very filling. I know you don't have to ever be hungry to lose weight. I'm drinking more water as we speak. (or as I type)

Once I go off of sweets, the sugar in other things generally satisfies my sweet tooth. I especially love dried fruit or smoothies. After a few weeks of no sweets, I will get sick if I have any at all, even a bite makes my stomach churn. It's kinda nice. It takes away the want.

Well... I'm off to do a little work-out :)
