It's Time to be Awesome

Yesterday I started over (wait, have I said that before?)
I watched my calories, and drank my shake for lunch (instead of eating something) and tried to get in my water. It was rough.

Are you in the same boat as me? I mean, I'm just frustrated, SO FRUSTRATED. And I snack.

BUT, the good news is, taking back control this past week, I lost 2 lbs of that 10.
I eat healthy and smart Monday through Thursday. I let myself enjoy food Friday and Saturday, and sometimes Sunday. Then I get back at it. So that's where I'm at again.
But that works for me, because it gives me something to look forward to.

And have you ever eaten until you thought you were going to pop? Yeah, me too. But I don't do that anymore. (as much as I may want to sometimes)
