Part of re-commiting to this journey is going to be blogging daily...I've let that slip to...I've let go of everything, except food which has been flying freely into my mouth! Today when I got home from work, I wanted to binge so bad....just plow through anything on the counter....but I was good today...for breakfast I had 1c cheerios with 4 oz of 1% milk and a banana, for snack I had the last of some chex mix so that temptation is gone, for lunch I had a nice salad and two small whole wheat dinner rolls, for snack I had a small piece of angel food cake and a 100 calorie Special K bar (my two afternoon snacks were spread out a bit) and instead of binging, I popped a serving of peanuts while I made dinner - I had turkey keilbasa with grilled onions and peppers with some sweet potato mashed potatoes...I made a seperate less healthy meal for my spouse because he won't eat sweet potatoes or peppers. I've done two loads of laundry and taken a shower and because I only cooked for myself, I have food left over for another day. I've drunk about 50-60 oz of water today and I'm going to gymnastics practice so I will drink more then and I am hoping to go to bed early tomorrow so I can be productive at home. I've decided to weigh myself daily for the first little bit because I need either encouragement or a kick in the rear....I can not celebrate small successes because I allow myself to cheat...but today was a good day, the second day or the rest of my life and I was already down 2lbs...just water and tomorrow I could be up, but for now, I'm looking forward to going to practice for 2 hours and coming home to some fruit and sleep....here's to looking forward!

I am a huge proponent of weighing daily. It keeps me in check. :-) When I see the numbers down, I am so motivated to kick my butt and bring them lower!
