I Failed I Failed I Failed!

Well.... So Yesterday (my first day of doing my diet) went really well. It was my fruit day! And the cabbage soup was so yummy! I was not regretting it one bit.... Then I went to sleep and woke back up, *Sigh* I realized that this week is Reality Week and there is going to be a lot of outreach and working for miscellaneous things around town, and it will be hard enough for me to eat in general than it would be to eat per plan! *Sigh* so I caved!!!! So long Cabbage soup diet! I give up, however, I am going to try to stay off of sweets, coffee, and soda (I type this with caffeine withdrawals as it is!) for the rest of the week. So we shall see how THAT goes! To all those who think I am a slacker.... well I guess I am in a way, but I worked out last night, and then played tennis for almost 2 hours and then worked out again tonight... So I am going to follow my Mom's diet advice, stay away from soda/coffee (won't be consistent in that... I'll want it at LEAST once a week), eat less, and move more! There was something else she said, but it momentarily slipped. I think those are senior moments and I don't know if I am supposed to be having those yet! LOL! Well... I will let you know how goes it!


**** OH!!! BTW I lost 6 pounds.... probably all water weight lol but 6 pounds is 6 pounds! I'll try to keep it off and lose more as I go!****

No, you are NOT a failure. You lost 6 lbs, so that makes you a winner!!! Besides I've been on that diet....several times. And you lose weight fast but also gain it back fast. So your Mom is right. Even just laying off pop & watching what you eat....you'll be fine. And if you drink coffee black w/sweetener, you'll can have that. My hat's off to you as I have no dicipline when it comes to good food sitting in front of me. So, you go girl. Love your pic too. You rock!!!

Yay! 6 pounds is still impressive chica. All that exercise you are doing is bound to help you shed the pounds quickly. I have given up finding a racquetball partner...I am just going to play alone with my iPod. =0)
