Most of my life I have battled depression; it runs in the family but I have good control over it now. I of course have my days when I want to cry forever or not get out of bed. I was afraid this would be the case in the last week as I lost my job and have so much time on my hands. This didnt happen, I have been quite content actually. This could be due to the fact that I have been keeping so busy or because of the healthy eating. When I have more energy, I am in a better mood. Dreary days are particularly hard for me, I can get pretty bitchy but when the sun is out I really shine. Anyways, I think getting the proper nutrition is really helping with this issue.

Since starting my diet, I have noticed a few things changing on me. My skin is becoming clearer, it has a nice glow to it; I have more energy throughout the day (I used to be tired pretty much all the time, wanting to take naps); my face looks thinner and I dont feel so bloated anymore. Im excited to see the other changes that will happen!

Healthy food can be boring sometimes so I like to experiment. One of my favorite dishes is taco salad, I use romaine lettuce, cook ground turkey with taco seasoning, add salsa as the dressing and a little bit of cheese. Its delish! I also love putting salsa on scrambled eggs and on chicken breast. Tonight I made a Swiss Chalet marinade for my chicken, it was a bit salty but good. Although I like yogurt, sometimes I want a little extra with it; I add a handful of Honey Bunches of Oats to it for a change. When it comes to drinks, I have pomegranate green tea after every meal, one coffee a day and usually a G2. Sometimes I add some Nestle liquid tea to my water, its the best choice because it gives alot of flavor but doesnt have anything artificial in it. I am a woman so of course I crave chocolate from time to time. When this happens I will make a low cal hot chocolate or have one little piece of chocolate. Brussels Sprouts are my favorite veggie right now. I cut them in half, drizzle with olive oil and season with garlic sea salt.

Well I gained some weight back from my cheat day :( Im not sure if its just my crappy scale though, maybe I will start weighing myself at my parents where they have a professional scale. Just made my breakfast: 1/2 a lemon in a cup of hot water, scrambled eggs and yogurt. I will have a fruit for my snack before lunch. The lemon drink is the worst part of this diet; it is so hard to drink something so sour first thing in the morning. It gives me full body shivers!

Maybe I will workout today if the mood strikes me. Ive got alot of spring cleaning to finish around here so that could count as my workout right?

Hello Everyone! My name is Katrina and I am an overweight 27 year old woman. I have been overweight for my entire life and have tried numerous times to do something about it. Some attempts have been sucessful, like the diet I got out of a trash magazine that I did one summer before university. I lost 40 pounds that summer but as soon as I went away to school it was back to my old habits. Since then Ive lost 20 pounds here and there and gained them back. When I started a diet this week, I was only 12 pounds away from my all time highest weight. Looking back at my past self, I want to kick her ass and tell her to keep going until all the weight was lost. But here I am, making another attempt at it.

The diet I started is the 17 Day Diet, a diet I have tried and had sucess with in the past. My whole family went on it a couple years ago and we all did well, my father lost about 60 pounds. I enjoy this diet because you dont feel hungry on it, its simple to follow, the food is satisfying and there are some great recipes out there for it. I have stuck to the diet for the most part until today, I had a cheat day. When weighing myself this morning I was down 5 pounds, hope I did put some back on with this cheat day. It wasnt really worth it anyways, I didnt eat my favorite foods or anything. Anyways, I really hope I can stick to it this time and lose the weight. I started this blog because I feel that I need the support for my tough days. Seeing other people achieve their weightloss goals really motivates me as well.

Im looking forward to being a new me! I want to be able to buy fashionable clothing and feel good in them. I want to feel more confident, to know that when people look at me, they arent looking at the fat. I want to be healthier and live longer. I want to have more energy and happiness in my life. I want guys to see me as beautiful inside and out, not just as the girl with the pretty face. I feel determined that it will happen for me this time!
