DDDYC P4: Day 2

Before the holidays there was talk about forming a diet support group at work to help keep each other accountable and on track.  Evidently I have been drafted as the de facto leader.  I have to go check out SparkPeople and see what they offer for groups.  Someone had mentioned that you can weigh in and only have your percentage of loss be visible vs. your weight and I guess that is okay for the folks not ready to be 100% honest of where they are at.  I'm also going to set up a group on DailyMile so those of us more into fitness can log our exercise and support each other.

Food was good today.  I need to hit Central Market to stock up and try to stick closer to the packets that Allan sent.   Yet with what I have on hand I am doing well keeping within 1200 calories.

Speaking of Allan, I saw that I have an award as being one of the top losers on the first 3 phases of the DDDYC.  This is an award that I love because I worked for that one.  I had to turn down the holiday treats that were all around me and focus on what I really wanted - to reach goal weight and start in on the other goals I have that aren't related to weight loss.

If you are struggling and really want to stop the excuses and lose the weight for good you should definitely make Allan's blog a daily read.  He takes this weight loss business seriously.  He doesn't sugar coat the truth.  He doesn't engage in in bullshit.  He spells it out for you in cold, hard detail.  Is it hard work?  Yes!  Is it worth it?  Yes!  Ultimately you have to pick what you want more - to STAY fat or get real and claim the life you want.

Calories: 1120.
Fluids: 48 oz coffee + 96 oz of water = 144 oz.

Congrats on the award from Allan, and congrats on being chosen the leader for weight loss support at your office. You are a great role model and will lead the group to a healthier state of being.

Also, thanks for the heads up on DailyMile. I intend to check it out.

Stay healthy.

Congratulations on the awesome award.

Are you making a salad with the lunch ingredients? I keep threatening to head to Central Market but haven't made it over there yet.

Kimberly said...

@Kelly I kind of buy staple items and throw them together in the mornings if I don't have anything cooked. The lunch stuff is just a mishmash of things I know are good together. It is kind of like a warm salad. I nuked it.

Congrats on the award. Well deserved.

Digger said...

Kimberly, I want to say thank you for all your helpful suggestions and your support. I also went shopping tonight and stocked up on healthy food to eat while I am here in OR E GONE, where it is freezing cold. I find I actually enjoy drinking HOT WATER here. lol

Kimberly said...

@Digger You are welcome. You aren't in this alone. There are many of us that are starting to find the way out and I think we should share it with others. If what I learn can make it easier for someone else then I want to let them in on it.

You CAN do this!

I was wondering about the calorie counter you use. Where did you find it? Is it free?

Congrats on that award! You are so inspiring!

Congrats on the award!! I'm pretty much doing the same at work, but ours is more a biggest loser contest. I've been looking at spark people lately (I downloaded the app for phone a while back but never really used it). I like it so far (cdurrell85 if you want to add me).
