Day 1

Tuesday, July 08, 2008

Yesterday was my first day of my journey. It was interesting to see how certain things I did under stress became such bad habits. For example, I had a majorly stressful last couple of minutes at work (long story), and when I left work all I wanted to do was go through a drive-thru and grab something quick to eat. I literally had to remind myself that I can't do this anymore, atleast not right now.

Once I got home I felt like eating everything in sight. I was like "calm down!!" lol it was kind of sad really. I say this because I guess before I never really paid attention to how I would eat on impulse, and not think about what I was really consuming. Well that is, until after I had eatten it and felt guilty about it.

Soooo, guess what though? It paid off, because I was 2lbs lighter this morning. The good thing about dieting/exercising is that you lose weight very quickly in the first week or two, which helps you more mentally than physically I think. =)

    I just had to say I'm exactly the same way! I hope you're first few days are going well! I'm on my second day of following all the meals and only eating 1200 calories a day, which is INSANE since I'm normally eating 1200 calories in like, one meal. I was so stressed out yesterday and wanted to go get a big chocolate shake, some fries, Big Mac and a venti Starbucks... YUMMM.. but then remembered I want to look great in a few months after all this!! I wish you tons of luck on your journey!
