Today starts a new week. My total loss ended up being 3 pounds. Part of the challenges this week were: New way of eating combined with learning new job; new job has longer commute than used to (minimum 45 minute drive 3 days, and minimum 60 minutes 2 days - this is just one way); getting up early for the commute and not eating until arrival at work.

I am also finding that I have hunger around 5pm - and I still have an hour drive to get home, then fix dinner. So I am going to stretch out my snack or eat it later than 3pm.

It's Tuesday morning and I am up and ready to "re-start" my program. I did slip a little yesterday. For dinner I had a glass of chocolate soymilk with dinner (an omelet w/veggies & cheese), but I really needed that chocolate and milk fix. I had a full day at work learning my new computer and had a headache from all the. I know that is no excuse, but that's what I did and why.

Today - a new day and fresh start. I did weigh myself this morning and did not do any damage, but that isn't my passport to keep messing up. I will be back on track today.

Today is my first Monday of the MoBaD (I like that acronym). Anyway, I try not to eat anything until I get to work. So I have my breakfast, lunch and snack packed and ready to go. Today, however, after reading over the rules a bit more, I have packed a morning snack as well. It's only 2 oz of chicken, but the protein may help me. I find myself watching the clock around 10am until I can get away to eat lunch - I don't want to do that. I want to be thinking of anything BUT lunch.

I have been succeeding on eating slower, and I make myself concentrate on what I am eating. I am also working on putting the fork down between bites rather than "guarding it with my life" so to speak.

Another thing - after this first week, I am going to try very hard to only weigh myself once a week. I know from past experiences that weighing every day could be very discouraging because of the fluctuating scale. Like Wynonna Judd says in the alli commercial - I am more than a number on the scale!

This is going okay for me. I like that I don't have to measure, weigh, keep track (kind of) about what I am eating. This is easy for me, especially over the weekend. During the work week, it seemed hard - but it was my first 2 days. I will have to do this a little different as I am used to eating more times - but smaller portions - throughout the day...so I am thinking that the 2 bananas will have to not be eaten together....eat one with water, then eat another later with more water. I keep a bottle or two with me all the time, and at my one office, they have a cooler, so I can refill the bottles throughout the day.

I have also decidedly slowed down my eating - and I think that helps. My husband eats slowly - so my goal is to be the last one eating. :)

This is my third day of the diet. I weighed on Wednesday night before going to bed, just to see where I was. Then I weighed on Thursday morning before dressing for the day. I know that mornings are the best time to weigh in.

I have not really done any exercising - but I want to get into a routine. I have no excuses, I have a treadmill and walking DVD's. Just making the time to be downstairs in the basement as that is where the machine is.

Don't beat yourself up! Your choices were still healthy ones and we're not going to do the diet perfectly every day. Look at all the positive things you did - you had your fruit (bananas) for breakfast, water, and hopefully got plenty of sleep.. Good luck today!

I do have 2 - but I don't have them at the same time - basically because I am trying to eat 6 small portions/times rather than 3 huge portions/times. Today was a rough day at work, however I am thankful for the job...so I did slip up tonight and had a glass of chocolate soymilk with dinner. But there is always tomorrow - I can start over tomorrow.

Congratulations with getting started! Since you are hungry couple hours before lunch, how many bananas are you eating for breakfast? It may help if you eat at least 2 with the water. I have started out with 2 because that keeps me fuller longer. I know once my stomach shrinks a bit from stretching it over the years with huge meals, I'll probably only need one banana, but for now 2 does the trick and I'm not trying to cheat. Eating slower is a great idea..I have been focusing on that as well. Good Luck! Look forward to reading your posts!

Eating slowly is a great idea. I find when I do that I feel full a lot sooner. Congratulations and keep up the good work.
