    Journal what you eat----if you BITE it, WRITE it...studies have shown that people who lose weight successfully are those that kept a food journal

    I've got a glass of water, and we're cleaning and reorganizing our bedroom. Later I'm going to try out the new set of 8lb weights and the new workout pants dh bought me...

    Had half a bagel & tea for breaKfast and have had 3 glasses of water so far. I find myself reading more and more labels and making better choices. Good luck with your choices today!

    I am READY! Today is the day that I am really starting. I am somewhat at the mercy of others for my food intake today as we had breakfast at my parents and are having dinner at my fil's, however, I certainly make the ultimate choice what to put in my mouth! And, I'm on my second glass of water, and getting ready for my third! I'll post my eating and water for the day at the end of the day in my online food log! No exercise today, but tomorrow, I'm getting up with dh at 5:15 and doing my healthwalker...NO MORE EXCUSES!!!

    Happy new year!

    I'm slurping down some water right now, and will be headed out to the gym shortly.

    No excuses!

    So far so good today. Weighed myself so I would have a starting weight for this year and I'm looking for the notebook I bought to make my journal (I have GOT to get myself more organized this year, I can't find anything!) Had some yogurt and a little bit of canned pineapple for breakfast with a glass of water. Had a slice of organic cheese on whole wheat bread with a few pinto beans for lunch and water again. I've also had several small glasses of water today. Just had some mixed nuts for a snack. Don't know how much exercise I'll get in today, it's pouring rain and I wanted to walk outside, oh well, I'll just have to jump on the treadmill for a while.

    Sounds like everyone is really feeling positive and doing great today!!!!! Yea Scooby on passing up on those brownies
    Hope everyone has a great day!

    I just got back from the gym - I did 50 minutes of cardio!

    Now we're headed out to a soup and salad restaurant, but I think I can make some good choices there.

    I honestly don't have time time keep a food journal, but I am definitely thinking more about what I eat. Water is already my preferred beverage so that's not a problem and I got a lot of good exercise today.... played in the yard with the dogs for a while and got in a lot of walking around the neighborhood.

    So far so good today. Except the French Fries I had at supper.
    (They forced me to eat them! )

    Really the only carbs I had today was the fries. Tomorrow will be better.
    I have almost saturated my body with water today. Done good with that

    Tomorrow will be better, I will be at work and it's the first of the month and 1st of the year.
