Diet Day 16

I'm on a roll......no I am not butter.

Today is day 16 of consuming right around 1500 calories. IF I've gone over it may be by 100 or so. I only treadmilled 2 times last week so my goal this week is 3 times. I've stepped up the water intake for sure. I've dropped right around 10 pounds in 16 days and feel confident that I am going to continue to be successful.

The toughest challenges are fighting through the habits and unexpected temptations. Today Chick Fil A came thru and gave all teachers a 4 peice nugget pack. I scarfed 'em down in front of jealous students and then quickly checked online to see how many calories I just had. Only an additional 130 calories and I adjusted what I was going to eat during lunch.

Also last Friday I passed up someone's extra taco and then had the opportunity to eat FREE pizza and passed since I knew each slice had to contain about 300 calories. Last night I went to dinner only having had 500 calories so I had a cheeseburger basket at a nearby burger joint. It was GOOD!

As BillyV stated once, "Better bad choices."

I'm really suprised that I haven't had energy dips and highs with this diet. I guess consistently having between 1300-1500 calories has helped.

Now if you kick the fast food, just imagine where you'd be? How much is a bagel?

Reply to mommyprof: Breaking habits really. I don't feel MUCH hunger at all. Only when I've frontloaded a meal and expanded my stomach.

REply to CHIP: We will go someday in the future. Kind of on a fast for right now. It's good for me. My attitude in general is a lot more positive.

I'll just have to plan to treadmill for an hour before we go.

Reply to pigs: I looked at our bank statement yesterday and 80% of our bank withdrawls are for food places. Forget going to the grocery store.
