I went with two women, a friend I know fairly well and her friend. The friend of my friend spent about an hour on the drive there explaining her whole-food, low-carb diet. It wasn't South Beach or anything else I'd heard of, but it was in that genre. It was really very dull and after seeing her eat, I could tell that she was talking about all this stuff and not really doing much of it.

Getting dressed today was a chore again. I wanted to look nice for work, and I finally settled on a dress since I don't like the way my dressier pants fit. My weight has stayed within a pound or so for the last several weeks, but it's definitely not where I want it to be. My clothes don't fit right and I'm feeling down. I took a cue from Cindy and decided to hard-boil some eggs to have as a snack, since I tend to skimp on protein and eat more snacky foods than I need. I am still sticking with calorie counting, but decided to try a diabetic exchange-type diet to help me plan my meals, since I'm not as good at spreading out my calories throughout the day as I need to be. (I just Googled "diabetic exchange diet" in case you're interested). I am going to shoot for between 1500 and 1800 calories. From tracking on FitDay, I know that I'm averaging about 2200 to 2300 right now, so cutting back should get me on a losing track again.
Watching "The Biggest Loser" tonight should help inspire me to stick with it.
