Breakfast: bowl of Special K strawberry cereal.

That's all I have eaten today but I wont lie I am feeling a little discouraged. I know it's only been two weeks but Gah! I am thinking I need to up the physical activitly level, however it get's hard when it's 108 outsite. BUT I went swimming yesterday (good workout without over heating hahaha) and it was so much fun AND I am not sun burnt :( lol it's not too bad though. I think I will be trying to go and swim more often (just went to a local lake). OH! and I have a horse show today so I probably wont be eating much since (I am not sure why) when ever I have horse shows I have a tuff time just eating breakfast...

well, I just saw where you measured yourself and it sounds like you are making progress! CONGRATULATIONS! That is great...

Remember, if you keep doing something for three weeks it becomes habit which means it becomes easier. Good job on the swimming, my husband just did a triathlon and he said that the swimming part was the best exercise of all. He had never been a swimmer or anything so he had to learn the right ways to swim laps.

Anyway, good job and keep going, it sounds like you are doing great!

Went camping this weekend and I did my best to be 'good' but I pretty much failed.

Day 1:
Breakfast: Oatmeal with blueberrys (not bad)
Snack: None wasn't hungry
Lunch: some plain ruffle chips and a little slim fast (of course I forgot the rest of the case at home).
Snack: some more chips
Dinner: Steak with BBQ sauce
Snack: 2 Smores *hides away*

Yesterday:
Breakfast: Bacon & Eggs with some beans
Snack: None wasn't hungry
Lunch: Hambergers with ketchup and a poweraid
Snack: None
Dinner: Hambergers with watermelon (more like finished the other half of my first one from lunch).
Snack: one Smore

Today:
Breakfast: 2 hotdogs and 2 smores *smacks hand* bad bad!!!
Snack: none
Lunch: A salade with light dressing

and I am home not (obviously) so yeah I was pretty bad BUT I did do A LOT of hiking and swimming so I am going to pretend(SP) that I burnt at least some of my bad behavior off. I volunteered to pay for the camp site while others did food and silly me didn't think to think that everyone else isn't watching what they eat >.<

Good luck! I also second weight watchers, I know of two people who are on it. One has lost about 50lbs, the others about 35lbs

Wow!! good for them! I might have to look into that. I am so sorry I have bene horrible about loging my food in here but my lap top gave e the blue screen of death so I can only go on here while on Campus. I don't have a scale or tape mesure with me but I will do that tonight and log it tomorrow . I went to the doctor and decided to get some blood tests to see if there is something up with my thyroid(SP) because according to my Docotor with how active I am I shouldn't be 245. She said I would still be over weight because I need to drink more water but it would be more like 180 or 190ish (WAY BETTER IMO) So she got those back and we are going to talk about them this Thursday. *big sigh* so here is what I have eaten today:

Breakfast: Bowl of frosted flakes cereal (ran out of my cheerios)
Snack: None
Lunch: Small Bowl of cottage cheese, fruit, some broccoli salade, and some chicken (all in the bowl). Then a 16Oz PowerAid
Snack: Cherry Coke *smack hand*
Dinner: Not time yet and honestly have no clue....

congrats on your journey toward a healthier you!! I lost 80+ lbs over the course of a few years (first 35 dropped off pretty fast once I made a few key changes) so I know how hard this can be. Most importantly is not to beat yourself up when you slip up. Acknowledge it and move on, but get back on the wagon right away, don't tell yourself "tomorrow I'll do better". Instead tell yourself "ok, I screwed up and ate 3 donuts, that is my last screw up today".

I also recommend weighing in every day or every other day. It helps you realize where you're at and when things start to slip in the wrong direction so you can catch it sooner. The best thing I EVER did for myself was get a food scale (pretty cheap at walmart). I was waaaay underestimating my calories. Also, since I worked at starbucks at the time, mochas were my downfall. Did you know a small nonfat mocha with no whipcream has 170 calories in it?! And unless you ask, you get whole milk-230 calories!! That's more than a candy bar. They were the first thing to go out of my routine. I switched to drip coffee and started walking a mile a day.

YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

ps I love your sign in- my horse's name is D'artagnan!!
