Day 2

This is me in 2003 I believe after I lost all of the UK weight. I was about 155 here. New FAT pics coming soon!!
So I've just spent 20 minutes trying to convince another friend to join me. She agreed to keep a food journal and I think I was more successful in convincing her that I am crazy. Singing "The Biggest Loser" theme song may have put my campaign over the top.

I just feel like the difference this time is going to be a support system of like minds and accountability. I've never really went that route before and I strongly believe it will work. It's a well known fact that when you receive support for a life change you are more likely to be successful.

So things with the diet are going great....of course they are it is only Day 2.

Breakfast: Mushroom & Goat Cheese Omelette & 2 Turkey Sausages
Snack: Cheese Stick
Lunch: Balsamic Glazed Salmon with Caramelized Shallots & Broiled Asparagus
Snack: Cheese Stick & Nuts
Dinner: Balsamic Glazed Salmon with Caramelized Shallots & Broiled Asparagus

The Balsamic Salmon was a South Beach recipe and I was worried because I didn't want the glaze to be vinegary and when I looked up the recipe on http://www.foodnetwork.com/ and http://www.epicurious.com/ they all called for sugar or honey. Since I can't have sugar I took a chance and put equal in it and I must say it was not bad at all.

I was asked today if I was hungry at all and I said only when I waited too long to eat. I was actually quite full after all of my meals - I think the key here will be not to get bored.

Now I know I can't always eat lunch for dinner...hence my meal planning goal. I'm on the "new diet high" now and that's a good thing because I am really motivated. However, I'm scared for when this thing is gonna get hard.

I need to take a picture of myself this week that I can post on here.
