I'm so excited. I"ve only been counting calories about 2-3 weeks now and so far I've lost 6 pounds. It's not much but I passed the 5 pound mark and that's just motivated me a ton more. I've cut out all soda, greasy foods, and unhealthy snacking. My average daily calories are around 800...which just amazes me! I now eat apples and bananas for a snack. I have grits, yoplait light, or a slimfast powder mixed with water for breakfast. And I usually have a lean cuisine or smart ones for lunch and dinner. Though I bought a food scale for when I cook meat and it goes my pounds. I fixed a roast a couple days ago and was shocked how much 4 oz was...I was thinking it'd be a little bit of meat but it was plenty filling with a broccoli and cheese steamer.
I'm so proud of actually making an eating habit lifestyle change. Usually before I'd do a diet and was constantly hungry or eyeballing food my boyfriend was eating. Now that calories are important I have no trouble passing on chocolate goodies! I can't wait til I hit 10lbs lost and so on!
