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.
