Today is the first day that I have actually started to diet, ever in my life. I am starting today because it’s after Turkey Day, and plus I was sick as a dog this weekend. To be honest, I don’t know if I can do it.   I have the utmost respect for good food, and feel terrible when I pass up a plateful of delicious pasta or moist triple layer chocolate cake with the works (frosting, strawberries…you know the deal).  I think I may be addicted to pasta and chocolate. The reason behind the ghetto booty by the way. I like my booty, but the pasta and chocolate are also the culprits behind the cellulite, so sadly, we must part ways.

I will be going on a no-fat, low carb diet, so that leaves room for SOME pasta (yay!).

As promised I will be keeping (and posting) my food journals.  I feel this is the best way to stay on track because it will hold me accountable for everything I eat. No cheating. I’ve also downloaded MyFItnessPal, which is an app that tracks my food intake, and counts calories for me so I know where I am in reaching my goal. It’s actually a really handy app if you want to lose weight.

Here goes:

According to MyFItnessPal, I can have 1200 calories a day to reach my goal of 125 lbs. If you work out, you get extra calories to spend!

Breakfast

1 Starbucks Americano Coffee with 2 Splendas, and Half and Half (10 Calories)

1 Banana (147 Calories)

Lunch

1 Salad, Serving Size: 4 cups. (Romaine Lettuce, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Chick Peas, Salt, Pepper, Oil and Vinger dressing) (78 Calories)

1 YoPlait Yogurt (160 Calories)

Dinner
1 serving of pasta with tomatoe sauce. (Yummy)

Snacks
Coffee
Tea

I’m feeling hungry and have to do everything in my power not to reach for the mini Reese’s peanut butter cups I have stashed away. The coffee and tea help, but it isn’t the same. Oh well, the first day is always the hardest.
