Really? We're only 2 days into this? REALLY?

OK, let me just say that even though I know logging my food WORKS, it still sucks! I hate it. But, I'm going to do it because IT WORKS for me.

I'm two days into the "restart" and thankful for the BodyBugg program. Tonight, I needed something sweet, specifically, chocolate. I'm serious...I NEEDED it.

So, I took a look at what I had logged thus far and decided that I was willing (and able) to spend some calories on 1/2 of a Hershey's Milk Chocolate bar.

...and it was goooooood.....

And there's the beauty of this program, right? I mean, how many people, 2 days into their "diet" are going to eat 1/2 of a Hershey bar and not say they "cheated"? Not me...oh no....I did not cheat. I am still within my daily caloric intake so I DID NOT CHEAT!

Ha ha...I just love that!

Now, this obviously can't become a daily ritual, but it is so wonderful to know that when I NEED it, I can have it!

Oh, and just in case you're interested, I am drinking the water. All 100+ ounces of it daily. Wow...that is a lot of water folks! But, I know that by the end of a few weeks I am going to see a big weight loss because I'm flushing out the excess sodium and whatever else is lurking in there from all of the holiday bad eating and drinking. And, drinking the water makes me feel better.

...and pee a lot...

So, on that note, I am signing off for tonight, but just know that if you're out there thinking "Geesh, this SUCKS" you're so totally NOT alone. I'm out here muttering it also, but keep with it and the rewards you will see on the scale will make it suck a little less every week!

OK, racingmom! You commented, now I blog more! Ha ha...be careful what you ask for!

Thanks for following and for commenting. You know what? I don't think you can lose just like me...I KNOW YOU CAN! Girl, you're 20 pounds less than I was starting out. Give me a shout out when you hit the 230's....you'll be there before you know it!

As alwasys great post Lori. Yes, I too hate measuring and writing it all down. As a matter of fact for Nov and Dec I did not keep it up. What was the end result you may ask? 10 pounds! Not lost but gained. Valuable lesson learned.

Thanks, Heather! I'm totally in the same boat...stopped logging and gained 10. DUH...what is wrong with me? Well, now I know. The measuring and logging is a pain, but after about 6 weeks (for me anyway) it just becomes habit and not that difficult. Good luck to ya...let's get those 10 off and keep moving!
