Today my scale at home said 200! I am so close to that 199, I can taste it. Ha ha. There's just something about getting under 200.
For the new people who are reading and have asked, here is what I'm doing to lose weight.
I try to only eat bread/pasta/potatoes (one, not all 3) once a day.
I drink diet pop.
I try to stay away from sugar ( really sweet stuff, not like the sugar in a piece of bread).
I am eating in moderation. As in looking at the serving size. I count out Fritos (32 is a serving). I eat two smaller meals a day and one larger.
I try to get 64 oz of water a day.
I do not limit my fruits or vegetables. They didn't make me fat.
I occasionally allow myself treats, but not until I was several weeks into the diet and very committed to it.
I am part of a weight loss challenge at work. They last for 5 weeks which I think makes it not seem so "permanent" or "daunting". In the last challenge I won $70. Money and accountability are great motivators.
*Edited to add that I also kept a food diary for the first 2 months. If you want to see how much weight I've lost, scroll to the bottom of this page and look for the hula girl. I usually update her on Wednesdays.
