Wk Weight Loss: 1 lb - 98 To Go

Well, at least I lost something. I have been really down on myself because I have been eating so horribly. The trainer at Gold's told me that your diet is 70% of your success in weight loss. Well, I have the 30% exercise part licked - just gotta get the other going in the right direction.

Lately, all I have been wanting to eat is cereal. A particular brand - Life Honey Graham. I have been having two bowls for breakfast and then snacking or eating a Lean Cuisine for lunch then having another bowl for dinner. It is all I want! I am just gonna have to not let myself buy it anymore! But, I figured it wasn't' such a bad cereal to eat - 240 calories in 2 bowls with only 14 grams of sugar. What do ya think?

I did have specific dates for certain weight goals. I changed that -- there is no way I can lose 18 lbs in 4 weeks. I do want to lose 100 lbs by the end of this year - but I don't want to set myself up for failure and burn out because things aren't going the way I think they should be. I keep reminding myself that my body isn't what it used to be. UNFORTUNATELY!!

So my goals are listed for every 20 lbs and I will post pics as soon as I get to them. I would like to lose between 8-10 lbs a month.. but if I don't I am not gonna end it all.

I think your playing with fire eating the cereal. There are much better things you can eat (and better cereals really). Just... I've been there, done that. The cereal you are eating is like eating a dessert. And it sets your palate up for craving sweets at regular intervals.

Cereals like Uncle Sam (I know, not as good as the one you're eating), shredded wheat... those are better cereals.

Wishing you the best!!
