I have 2 scales, one said 210.0 and the other said 211.3, CLEARLY I'm going with the scale that says 210.0. So that's my new starting weight and I'm going to update weekly where I land.
Lapbandgal uses sticky post-it notes to track her calories daily- isn't that a simple and great idea? I tend to make things more complicated than they need to be, so I liked her idea. And after losing 100lbs in a year, she's obviously got it together.
I have some work to do but my goal this week was consistently tracking what I'm eating - and I've done that.
I've also purchased the Gladware 1/2 cup, 1 cup and 2 cup portion bowls. I really like the 1 cup size and am going to use that to gauge my eating. I shouldn't be eating more than 1/2 - to 1 cup of food at a time. If I get really energetic today, I'm going to pre-make some super healthy soups and freeze them. I'll let you know how they turn out.
Here's a few pictures that my little miss Busybee and I took on my new macbook yesterday. I'm getting used to this mac (always been a pc user) very quickly! Some things on it are just so much faster (fewer steps) to complete than on my PC. And I really love it so far!
