Lesson #1

Well I'm glad I decided to read the label on my vitamin water... 13 grams of sugar per serving, times 8 a day = 104 grams of sugar I'm just DRINKING. Even my opiginal plan of alternating b/t vitamin water and regular water won't work. Sheesh. I'm normally pretty good at looking at labels, too, but for whatever reason, it didn't occur to me this time. Too bad too, because I really really really like the grape flavor. *sigh* At least I figured it out now, before I'm going "I don't know why I'm not losing weight....". As soon as this bottle is done (tonight) I'm sticking to regular, plain, free, no calorie water. I may as well have been drinking cherry coke!!!!

Countdown toKick-off

Friday is the BIG DAY. I've been doing some practicing... I have 3 recycled Vitamin Water bottles in the fridge full of water, and I have been *trying* to drink 2 a day. Eventually I just get sick of drinking water though haha.
I took the piggly wiggly bag to the grocery store the other day... I was able to fit everything I needed into the bag. I was placing stuff in the bag as I shopped and I got a couple weird looks, but I didn't want to get up to checkout and have it not mostly fit.

I started reading YOU on a Diet last night. I don't think I'm going to start Friday, but very soon after that. If I can drop 10 pounds a month, in July I'll be pretty close to where I "stopped" when I lost all that weight in 2005. Maybe not skirt-less swimsuit ready, but I'll not feel weird wearing a spaghetti strap tank top. Why do I worry about this? I'm almost 30! I don't pay attention to what other people are wearing/shouldn't be wearing when I look at them. Oh well. Lifetime of being blessed in the padded areas I guess.
Mom just convinced me to join SparkPeople. She's on, and she loves it. Two heads are better than one (even if one of them is a hard head--that's me, not my mom.)

The Pre-Game

On February 1st, I will embark on a great journey. I've joined a group that sets a goal of completing 101 things in 1001 days. I've made my list, organized it by category, and am ready to begin!
Here, I'll keep track of the trials and tribulations of my journey. Establishing a blog for my progress is one of my goals, so I'm already ahead of schedule!
