Yes, there was weight loss showing on the scale this morning. (268.5) I have begun. I'm on day threeeeeeeee. Plththt. Remarkable - three days without cookies or candy. I was pretty hungry last night - this morning's breakfast really lived up to its name. Since I went a little under calories yesterday, I'm not allowing myself to starve myself today. I used 100-calorie slices of bread (5 today! a major sandwich day) instead of the 50-calorie slices I used yesterday, and added a half-tablespoon of mayo to my turkey sandwich because I've been a little low on fats and don't understand these dry sandwiches. I mean, I've never been one to glob tons of mayo on a sandwich but you want to put a thin layer over both sides of bread! THESE ARE THE RULES! Anyway. With that and the dairy additions to my coffees, I'll make it to 1600 today. I have 7 hours left in my day at work and only dinner and snack. I try not to purposefully convince myself of the unsatisfactoriness of my small meals when the fact is I'm doing fine and only feel a little hunger as the next mealtime approaches. Like now - it's been 3 hours since lunch, and I'm thinking about dinner. Just having a minor mental freakout in response to going on a diet. Blogging reminds me I'm serious about it. Hm, was considering having a taste of the butternut squash soup I have in the cabinet at home, but maybe I should stay down around 1600 for today - that is supposed to be my daily level after all.
La la la - I'm gonna make it. What I should really worry about is whether I have all that I need for tomorrow, including the time and energy to prepare it.
