I have to share with everyone my victory - yesterday, when I started my journey, by the end of the day I had gone over my recomended calorie intake by 4154 calories... yikes !! But today, I only went over by 1625 !! I'm not where I should be, but this is BIG for me. Yay ! Thank you everyone for the encouragement !!

Yay, Margie! Now for a new Abbreviation. What you've had today with winning a small battle against your overages is called an NSV , non scale victory.... anything that is a victory on your journey that doesn't involve stepping on the scale.
One less link in our watchband. One more hole in your belt, a smaller bra size.. ok , maybe this one isn't a REAL victory,depends on how you look at it I suppose, LOL

You are doing great.

Yay! I think the first thing for me was to notice the amount of calories that I was eating - and I was shocked! You have made a great first step.

Fabulous Margie!

It was a big shock for me too! After I realized how many calories I was eating, I began measuring my food...just to see how many servings of each thing I was actually. I was shocked that half a box of cereal was more than one serving

Great steps baby!

The most exciting, challenging, significant relationship you have is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone who loves the you that YOU love, that's fabulous 286-1/6/ 13-CW 262 GW 165
