.. i'm on day two of this whole lifestyle change kick, and so far I'm going okay...

positives from day 1: did exercise (25 minute walk), drank my determined amount of water (1.5l), changed some food choices after seeing the calorie count

negatives from day 1: in the evening ate a couple of granola bars & pretty ended up eating all the calories I'd avoided eating earlier in the day! ate some crackers - BUT I guess it wasn't a whole box like it usually would be!

positive from day 2: it's midday & I have eaten a 'good' breakfast, have drunken about 1/2 my determined amount of water, I'm thinking about what a 'good' lunch would be

negatives from day 2: DD1 is sick so i"m using that as an excuse to not go for a walk - BUT I'm going to make myself do some walking on the spot tonight when she's in bed - that's gotta be better than doing NOTHING, right? I guess this could also be a positive...

my dinner tonight isn't the healthiest, so I am going to concentrate on PORTION CONTROL... having the 'serving size' of pasta, rather than the whole packet :^: I also have some sugar snap peas ready to eat so will add some of those to my meal!

You sound like you're doing really well! I like the idea of recording the day's positives and negatives.
Hope DD1 is better soon.

You are consciously aware of what you are doing. You are tackling the mental aspect of weight loss and that is 80% of the struggle. That is a very important step. Keep doing it and it will surely become a new healthy habit!!
