I am a little bit excited this morning, can you tell? My brother and I started a healthier lifestyle yesterday which means we are eating healthier. I got up this morning and one of the first things I did was to weigh. I know, I should only weigh once a week but I am a scale-a-holic because I have to weigh everyday. Anyway, I am 3.4 pounds lighter this morning! I know it's mainly water loss but that's okay with me. It was definitely worth feeling a little hungry yesterday. I had no idea that I had been snacking that much lately until I stopped it all together except for eating fruit yesterday. I figure it will take a couple of days to get into this healthy snacking habit and I won't get hungry anymore. I am having more than enough to eat, it's just that my body is craving the snacks. So, here's to another day of healthy eating.

Good for you! I cut sugar out of my diet at the first of the year (my daughter is quitting sugar for a month as well so I have an accountability partner to keep me honest), and I'm trying to eat homemade-from-scratch as much as possible to avoid all the preservatives and flavour enhancers that seem to be in everything. Good luck!

congrats!! healthy lifestyle changes that one can stick to're awesome. lots'f times we've a cravin' fer sweets 'n such - jest our bodies tellin' us we're missin' some nutritients. there's charts actually which tell ya what yer body needs versus what we usually feed it (aka: salty chips, chocolate, etc). doin' the happy dance fer ya! jest don't fret if'n ya fall off the wagon, so to speak. indulgence'n moderation aint a bad thingy 'fter all :)

I'm actually not trying just eating healthier and it's just coming off pretty quick this time. It may have to do with the medication I am on. I do know that I shouldn't continue to lose too quickly or I might need to see the doctor.
