Day 2---D.D.D.Diet

I did well today, but I was hungry. Why is is that when you know your on a diet you get hungry!

Fruit & yogurt Cup 3
coffee with creamer and sweet n low 0

Green salad with Italian dressing 0
Reduced fat club crackers(5)2
WW ravioli frozen dinner 5

Wendy's grilled chicken sandwich
(It was a soccer night)


WW chocolate cake 1
94% fat free popcorn 1

2 diet pepsi's
1 iced tea
1 h20

Not sure about the points count for the sandwich , but it is safe to say it was under the 12 points I had left without using any flex....yes, i did it! I am off to watch Miami Ink and then back on the net to search for some information about emotional eating. I really thing I fall into that category, so I am out to fix it! Good luck fellow dieters!

Diet Day 1-Goal to lose 30 pounds....

I did pretty well today, at least I feel like I have some accountability by posting my daily endeavors here. So here goes, I am following the Weight Watcher points plan, my points as it stands according to my weight is 24 . No I am sure I should be at 22, but since I am pms'ing seriously and must have at least 5 pounds water weight I will just let it go, more food for me..hehehe.... So today I had:

yogurt with blueberries and strawberries (mc D's) 3
Coffee with sweet n low and creamer (maybe a point)
Chocolate milk (bad, shouldn't of had this) 5

Green salad with Paul Newman Italian dressing 0
WW frozen tuna noodle casserole(this is yummy) 5
Club reduced fat crackers (5) I needed the salt!2

2 small boneless bbq chicken 4
2 biscuits with honey (should have stopped at one) 10
dieting is so hard!

Also, two diet pepsi's, one large ice tea, and a water

total: 30
I get 35 flex points a week so I borrowed 6, I will have to do better tomorrow!

total: 25 flex left
