The Great Race

Even though we have the results back, we’re still going to delay the cycle. I’m going to use the time to challenge R to a weight loss race in the hopes that if I take off a little bit of the extra pudge it will reduce the risk of the aforementioned potential complications.

My goal is 20 pounds in 9 weeks.

I got off to a great start this morning. Skim milk, an apple and a small amount of peanut butter for protein.

Then I unexpectedly wound up meeting a co-worker for lunch at a Mexican food restaurant. There were chips, there was salsa, there was ooey, gooey cheese. Lots of it.

After work, I came home. There was a big bag of Christmas candy sitting on the kitchen counter. I had meant to take it to work this morning and drop off in another department to get rid of the temptation.

Instead, I had Rolos for dinner.

At least I don’t have to step on the scale again until Friday morning.

Sounds like what happens to me when I start a diet. I always seem to find chocolate so it's not my fault :) Good luck with the weight loss.

I think the key is to make sure you've planned what you're going to eat throughout the day.

And don't let falling off the wagon one day affect what happens the next;-)

Have you checked out any of the weight loss blogs? There are some great ones out there - the skinny daily post is a really good one.

(Weight loss blogs is actually how I got started in the blogiverse before all this IF crap)
