One day at a time~

Thought Id check in and let you know how things are going. The vitamins are really seeming to be of some goodness.. maybe not so much in the energy way, I feel about the same there. But I do feel "full".. I havent really craved many snacks and can wait longer between meals. I almost feel forced to eat in a way. Not hungry I guess. And I guess a lot of it could be due to stress? Or just the changes Im making.

I have started eating breakfast with taking the vitamins, something I rarely did before. Id usually wait til I got to work, have some coffee and then maybe around 1030 or 11 be starving and then over-eat at lunch. Not good at all!

So far the diet is going good, the exercise.. not so much ;( Im trying to stay below 1800 calories and 35 grams of fat per day. So far I feel pretty good, have had plenty to eat and eat regularly. I have also forced myself to drink more water. Soooo hard for me because Im not a drinker of anything much at all. I drink a bottle in the morning with breakfast and then at dinner or before bed-or both. I know that is not near enough.. but I can already tell a difference with how many trips Im making to the bathroom. Lots!!!.. it could be me shedding all that water weight too. Whichever.. its working. Im also pretty proud that I have kept with my goal of not eating after 8pm! Actually Ive hit the goal of 2010 of 7pm. so that is good.

ps: little note~ Thank you for all your kind words and prayers. We are feeling a bit better today and hopeful that the situation is working itself out. Going to keep on praying!

That's great that things are working out for you, keep drinking as much water as you can. The more you do the easier it is to keep consuming more water. I buy Crystal Light metabolism + Peach Mango Green Tea to put in my water bottles, there's only 5 calories per pouch and no FAT!

Which vitamins are you taking? My Dr. told me to take Vitamin B, it's suppose to help convert food into energy. I got mine @ Costco, it's a Super B-complex with Vitamin C and Folic Acid.

Im taking the One-A-Day Energy, I used to take Vitamine B and B12 all the time.
That Crystal Light Metabolism is something Im definitely going to have to look into.. if it can spark my metabolism to do something I'll drink the heck out of it! ;)

Amie.. thanks!! Today was by far the worst.. and now that its almost 8pm Im sorry I didnt eat more today, but I was saving up for dinner because I knew it was Subway night. Still only 980 calories for the day.. I could kick myself!
