A Good way to start the New Year

I'm starting out with a goal of 50 pounds of weight loss for 2007. I was successful last year, but fell off the wagon in July. I'm on track once again, but boy, it seems harder this year! Is it because I'm another year older?

What I did for myself today:

8-8oz glasses of water (MAJOR achievement)
941 calories (out of 1530 permitted)
fat: 29.4 (out of 42.8 permitted)
carbs: 94.6 (out of 173.2 permitted...YEAH!)
protein: 84.1 (out of 112.8 permitted)
fiber: 26.9 (needed 25.0)

Oatmeal with walnuts for b'fast, a sandwich wrap and salad with sesame dressing for lunch, cauliflower, baked potato with fat free sour cream and bacon bits and steak for dinner. Snacks were an apple and 1 oz beef jerky.

I am following the Calorie King program, found at . It is a wonderful download (~$30) that has almost every food I've ever consumed, lol. Dh and I are in this together again, it sure does make it alot easier!

Off to do some knitting so I have something to show for WIP Wednesday!

Good for you, I hear you! I set my goal at 50 pounds, too.
Calorie King is a great resource even if you don't buy their program you can look up nutritional info for free. Jen

Well, maybe it's harder, but you've got yourself solidly on that wagon! Great first day! Mine, not so much. But today's another day, and glug, I'm at least getting the water in.

Good luck on your weight loss goal. It does take a little while to build up the momentum. Be sure you aren't starving yourself, or else you won't want to stay on very long.
