My GrandpaT always said at nearly every meal to at least one of us grandkids "Why don't you eat and leave the food alone?" Which, to a 5 yr old, is pretty confusing. I think I have it figured out, but don't tell my family. We all believe what we want about Grandpa's words of wisdom on just about everything in the world.
For me, I will simply say - it makes me wonder what in the world I really have eaten myself into...

Your Current Weight is....

24 lbs less than it was a month ago.

Yup. I finally cut out soda. I haven't had any fast food. I'll be honest I've had some emotional things hit me and I have almost no appetite this week, but even before then... with school and studying so much I never snack at night either. It's all coming together for the good. Who knows? I may not have weight loss surgery. If, in a year I'm down enough that I don't qualify for it... great!

I am going to keep this up. No more soda. No more fast food except for exceptional circumstances. And no matter what I eat, I will continue to only eat enough to satisfy, not fill my tummy. Then log every nit of it in MyFitnessPal. Because it helps me keep track of my intake, which makes me aware of what I shove in my pie hole.

What's cool about MyFitnessPal is that when I complete my day's entries it tells me how much I will weigh in 5 weeks if I stick to the same calorie intake. It adjusts based on what I take in each day. When I see that number, it makes me see I can do it. Just a few weeks at a time. A few pounds at a time. Between weight loss and school. Watch out future!
