I know it's early, but I've been practicing. I'm weighing in at 221 for the last 3 days, so I think it's official. I'm down 4 lbs. I've been passing up the fast food, avoiding the icecream, and cutting down on the starch. And really, it was because I joined this challenge that I've been thinking about it before I eat. Here's an example: I got off of work, having eaten nothing from 2-8 and was starving. (I know, pack snacks, but sometimes life gets in the way of common sense, ya know?)
There is a dairy queen three blocks away from my shop and I have to pass it on the way to pick up my girls at daycare. I have visions of moolattes and burgers dancing in my head. Then, at a red light, I remember I'm going on this challenge. I change the vision to two grilled chicken wraps and a diet soda. I feel better on the drive home.
I think for me it just comes down to making more of these good choices than bad.
