Soon, very soon I will be in a car heading back, once again, to ND.

Its been awhile since I have seen Brandon's family and I am looking forward to that.

I'm not looking forward to trying to stay on my diet while I am there! I don't want to blow it completely, but already the list of items I have decided to pack so that I can stick on my diet is astounding! Cereal, milk, diet cafiene free pop, chicken breast, lunch meat, low calorie bread, fruits like strawberries and bananas, Veggies like carrots and broccoli, Healthier butter, simply fruit sugar free fruit spread, rice cakes...

Its going to be an interesting hour between 4 and 5 as I shop for some last min grocery items, try to get home, pack all this food up and be ready to drive at 5.

Wish me luck!

Week 1

My morning weigh-in gave me a big boost today! 162.5!

I have been on this diet since Monday and already lost the 2 lbs for the week minimum that I want, all the while fighting off a cold. I made it to the gym 2 times and have one more workout, I am targeting Saturday for that.

Yesterday was hard because I got genuinely hungry before lunch and before dinner.

Saturday I start Phase 2 of the diet plan, this one is 6 days long and incorporates more protein supplements and added in a mid-morning snack which I have been doing anyway by taking a breakfast item and moving it to mid-morning.

I want to purchase a couple fish fillets, any recommendations on kinds of fish/brands? I could eat pretty much any fish, although I like salmon the best. But only if its fresh wild... and cooked up by a great chef!

I'm supposed to alternate Fish, Chicken and Turkey for my dinner meal.

Mel, how is week one going?

Anyone else want to join us in our quest?

My Goal: Lose 23 lbs by March 1st 2007. I would like to maintain a weight between 140 and 150 after that.
