I know I am not supposed to be calling it a diet. I was told this by one of the Mom's at Dancing School. I was sitting in the waiting room Monday night talking to one of my friends about my diet. This woman jumped up and started telling me not to call it a diet. It's a life change, bettering my health, etc. I know all these things but it feels like a diet to me. I LOVE food. I love to go out to eat. I love bread with butter dipped into my spaghetti sauce....yum....Well now I am torturing myself because I am drooling thinking about it. I was also writing down what I ate and keeping track of my calories. She started hitting my book..."No, no do not write it down" she said. "It's NOT a diet". I thought give me a break lady, this is hard enough without you sticking your nose in my business.
We started a "Biggest Loser" competition in my neighborhood. I am determined to lose weight and WIN! I am the heaviest that I have ever been. I can't fit into my clothes. I feel very uncomfortable. Both of my parents are overweight and are type 2 diabetics. I do not want to become diabetic. I am a Nurse and work in a Cardiology office doing stress tests everyday. I know better. I need to lose weight for my health. But, I love food. I think I mentioned that......
I am going to do it!! I want to lose at least 30 lbs. If anyone has any tips or recipes they want to share, that would be great.
I am following a 1500 calorie a day diet. I am drinking alot of water. I gave up diet coke and coffee. I had a major headache for 2 days. I am getting some caffeine from crystal light ice tea. I know I can have coffee but I like mine with a lot of french vanilla creamer. So I will treat myself on the weekend with a coffee and creamer.
I wanted Dan to take a picture of me in a sports bra and shorts but I will spare you that sight.
