HI all. I am so excited my father is being supportive of my healthly lifestyle changes. He has always been so admittly against my dieting. But now he says he sees me eating and excercising and can fully support that. My father bought us two 3 month passes to the local rec center to workout. Yesterday when I could not motivate myself to run. He actually dragged me to the gym. I could not believe it. Before he would have shoved a cheeseburger down my throat. It will help immensely to have someone else motivate me to excercise. Have a great day and stay motivated because this is the most difficult part.

I really appreciate all of your support at e diets and I have already begun my progression down weightloss. Although the consumption of 64 ounces a day of water is still a goal. This weekend was a little difficult - all the cookouts for father's day. Those steaks and hamburgers are to hard to pass up. Especially my father's rice burgers. I know it sounds gross but they are actually wonderful. So as penance I swam for an hour in addition to my run. I know that I did not burn all the calories I consumed but it made me feel better. The miraculous thing was I lost 2 pounds even though I believed I behaved so badly. Thanks again and have a wonderful day.

Well today is my first day at diet diaries...Although I have been reading some journals for a few days. I am on a mission to lose 15 pounds by the end of the summer. You see my best friend is getting married and I want to be presentable. I know this is a pretty vain reason but I am sure that see will pull these pictures out in the years to come and I will be forced to look at myself. I am currently trying to limit my intake to approx. 1000-1500 a day. This is not a problem. I have the hardest time eating 5 times a day and ocnsuming enough water. Diet coke seems to be running thriugh my veins. A year ago when I gave up reg cokes I believed that it was a big accomplishment and llost 10 pounds without even trying. But now I see how the caffiene is affecting my cardio workouts. To run three miles a day is killing me. So perhaps my first goal will be to cut the soda entirely and up my excerise capability. If I can run 4 miles in 1-2 more weeks without extreme difficulty I will be a happy camper.
