Starting Day

I weighed in, did my measurements, and even took a starting picture today. I was a little unhappy with the picture -- I have more of a spare tire than I realized. Still, the whole idea is that this is a starting point, right?

I am using the Flat Belly Diet as a baseline for my plan. I love the monounsaturated fatty acid foods (if not the acronym MUFA) that are required at every meal. Four 400-calorie meals seems like a good starting point, and as I said in my last post, I might allow myself some extra on days that I work out, if I'm really hungry and not just wanting a snack.  I am totally skipping the four-day jumpstart, as I know it would just make me crabby.  I'm using the #twitterdiet group for extra motivation.

So far, so good. I have had a very good breakfast and lunch and feel satisfied. I am about halfway to my water goal for the day.  I tried a new strength training class that I think will fit in well with the rest of my routine.

If I keep this up, I know I can improve on today's stats.


  1. I couldn't bring myself to take a starting picture. I hope a year from now it's my biggest regret. =)

  2. not if you keep it up but WHEN, right?


  3. Good point, Miz!
