Dieting Is No Fun



One of my New Year's resolutions was to start going back to the gym and eating better and to lose weight. Man oh man is it hard for me to diet, especially at my office! This morning someone brought us Panera Bagels and of course it was my favorite, Cinnamon Crunch, but I was good and controlled myself! I was watching everyone eat a yummy bagel while I ate my granola bar. For lunch I had 1 can of tuna with nothing but hot sauce and relish, but this wasn't too hard b/c I love tuna. Then this afternoon we had birthday cake at work for one of our salemen and it had to have my favorite icing, but once again I controlled myself. After work today I went to the gym and worked out! I am so out of shape but I am working on it. I wish it wasn't freezing outside, so I could take Buddy walking! Christian and I went grocery shopping since we haven't been in forever and our pantry was starting to look bare! We got all healthy food, so hopefully it will start being a little easier. Tonight I had a salad with no dressing for dinner, the only reason I didn't have dressing was b/c I didn't like what the restaurant had. So needless to say I am very proud of myself today! I am determined to lose some weight and soon! I feel bad for Christian b/c I have been a little on the grumpy side but I have been starving and wanting to give in all day! What kind of diet tips do you have?


I have really been craving one of these today..HA!!!!!! I'm heading to bed now to dream about this!

Way to go! Sounds like your doing great! I am trying to drop some pounds too. I'm going to try and hit the gym first thing in the morning!

Go you!!! Will power can be so powerful when you have it, and unfortunately I don't have it yet! A good sweet treat is Dark Chocolate, it is lower in fat than milk chocolate. I am also a huge fan of Crystal Light mixes. I live off of that stuff.

I just bought a new cereal yesterday - it is Fiber One Caramel Delight and it is so freakin good! It has 9 grams of fiber and keeps me full for a long time :-) I am so proud of your willpower!! That's awesome!

I count my points (not as closely as I used to) and it has worked for me to lose weight and maintain (for about 2 years now). The good thing about points is that you can find some great Weight Watchers brand stuff at the grocery and some great snacky stuff that is low points so that you can leave yourself enough points at the end of the day for some weight watchers ice cream!! I have to have a diet where I don't go to an extreme. I have to still have chocolate and popcorn and cheat days:)
