I know what is healthy. If I did not eat out with friends and family as part of being a normal social person, I would fare even better. Excuses, excuses. Need to start making the right choices, not the easy ones…

I still have the occasional weakness for McDonalds. I also wish that restaurants would serve correct portions instead of the gimungous portions that they do. At home things have been going very well. I typically eat between 1000 and 2000 calories a day – lots of fruits, veggies, and grains. I definitely allow myself more calories when I have exercised…:-) I have really cut back on dairy and have almost eliminated white sugar and flour. I must say that I still have butter and chocolate but a girl’s got to have a couple of vices. Bottom line is that in the last 6 weeks I have lost 10 lbs. Woohoo!
FYI – just like writing down your 43 things (goals). Writing down every little thing that you eat really helps keep you on track. I try to note fiber grams, fat grams and calories as well as the amount of water consumed. It really does help.
but I went and had a greek salad instead. A much better choice (even if it is twice as expensive). Had a peach and Puffins for breakfast – not bad. Now let’s see if I can resist all temptations for the rest of the evening.
