The "DIE" in diet

To say I was in a bad mood last week, would be a vast understatement. I snapped at Eric, I had no patience, and everything seemed to frustrate me. It was the first week of my diet.

Eric and I decided to do the Biggest Loser Club online again, because we both had great results when we did it a few years back. It took me 10 months, but I was able to lose the last 55 lbs (as you can tell, I don't lose weight quickly at all).

I was hungry all the time, and all I could think about was chocolate, ice cream, cookies, and all the other wonderfully fattening treats that I couldn't have. Being hungry is right up there with being nauseous...it just sucks!

I don't mind the food at all, it's the portions (or lack thereof) that can be discouraging. Our fridge now looks like this (about 90% fresh fruits & veges)

All that being said, I feel better now that the first week is over. I'm using a lot of seasonings I've never used before (b/c when your snack is a cucumber you have to spice it up somehow), and I feel better.

Now, I just need the weather to cool off a bit so I can start walking again with the boys. (when it's over 90 degrees, I refuse to subject the boys to it for an extended length of time, no matter how fat my butt is!)

Hungry does suck!

Hang in there baby! Love your husband and your boys. You are doing great!

I hate when I'm hungry. I can't just ignore it. My Mom would be all, "Drink some water," and that just doesn't help. At all.

Good luck with it!

Hrmm...maybe I'll try dipping cucumber slices in something more appealing, too...like chocolate pudding.

Hugs, hugs and more hugs! I'm so proud of you honey!!!! Get a couple of videos for you and some baby Einstein videos for the boys. Then you will have the time to work out at home, inside.

Sugar free popsicles are nice too.

You can do this!!!!

This post made me hungry just reading it. And not for fresh veggies.

Good luck. I still don't have the willpower to start losing the baby weight. When a pack of Little Debbies looks like a gourmet treat, you know you have a problem.
