I just feel a lot healthier on it!

I consolidated posts from both threads in one place. If anyone has decided not to play just let me know and I'll delete your post.

How did everyone do today?
I did great and accomplished 4/5 of my goals. I did eat breakfast in the car but otherwise remembering this thread kept me on track when I was tempted.

If you haven't joined and want to there's still time!

My goal for now is simple: to PLAN each day to the best of my ability (recognizing that when I am out with others I can't always control every detail) ... which includes planning exercise and (at least for January) counting calories.

Jan 2 - 2 pts
3 - 2 pts wahoo! actually exercised for the first time in forever. major cramping though
4 - 2 pts
5 - 1 point (forgot to post)
6 - 2 pts
7 - 1 pt (ate on plan but didn't actually PLAN)
8 - 0
9 - 2 pts
Jan 10- 16 - probably 0 points ... been soooo sick since Saturday ... trying to stay "on plan" but there really is no planning...
17 - 2 pts!!
18 - 2 pts
Jan 19 - 29 - mostly 1-point days since I mostly planned & stayed on plan but forgot to post
30 - 2 pts
31 - 2 pts, ending on a good note
