I have been absent for over a month. Life got busier and I didn't make this eating journey a priority. My last weigh in was 176.0 Today I weigh in at 174.5 -------- Total I am down. -1.5 I am actually encouraged by this because I have not been tracking, not drinking much water and definitely have been making some terrible food choices from time to time. Today is the day that I am back at it. I have had a healthy breakfast am making a lunch and snacks for work so that I do not sabotage myself out of convienince when hungry. Happy New Year! Here's hoping that 2013 is the year that I master this eating healthy battle.
