Lost a total of nine pounds so far and it feels so good. I'm also back on my war against sodium. Trying to keep it under the recommended 2400 a day is hard but I'm slowly relearning what to eat and how to eat it. I'm trying out new recipes I've ... Read more

So I just went through my first big obstacle. Fell off the wagon the first time. For about four days this week I was too depressed to track my food or even log into the site. I ate fast food, broke my eating at night rule, and generally just lai... Read more

So today was my cheat day and I just ate whatever I wanted and that meant two cupcakes, four sandwiches, four servings of peanut butter puffs cereal, a fricking protein bar, mac and cheese, stuffing, three pieces of white bread with peanut butte... Read more

Part of the 21 new member challenge for today is to make new, realistic, attainable goals. I'm having a little trouble thinking about what those goals might be for myself. I seem to be hitting my calorie restriction goal all too easily. Fi... Read more

I'm finding out I get most of my food based sodium from bread, so I'm going to have to start making better bread choices. With that in mind, I found an article that I want to share: Five Bread Ingredients to Avoid: http://www.fooducate.com/... Read more

Tuesday, April 11, 2017      5 comments

So I've lost 4 pounds. Might actually be seven because my starting weight was just an estimate based on last time I'd been weighed at the doctor, but then when I weighed myself two days in it said 463 instead of 460. But that was at the end of t... Read more

Kinda getting scared of failing... I just started this journey and the first few days have been a mad rush of calorie counting and finding out what I can do, exercise-wise. And for a few days it's as if I never dealt with, and will never ag... Read more
Marry a lemon

A month ago I would have ironically made that one liner referring to myself. Now I'm going to UNironically make it about the stash of "100 calorie" snack packs we have in the cupboard. I really took a good look at the label this morning wh... Read more
Hold the pickles
Wednesday, April 05, 2017      5 comments

I'm a huuuge fast food eater. I love the convenience and I've become addicted to the sodium and sugar rush throughout the years. So just completely eliminating fast food probably isn't the best step to start out with. Instead I tried to ea... Read more
A Really Confused Horse
Tuesday, April 04, 2017      1 comments

Little victories for the day: Had a no-salt-added day. (Went over my sodium by a few thousand anyway, but at least I didn't add to it, shaking salt over whatever I saw and then licking it directly off my plate like a really confused horse.)... Read more
