Day 2 of Weight Loss Goal

It's the morning of Day 2, and I made it through Day 1!!  I drank well over 8 glasses of water, which is the norm for me, but still a positive!  The problem that I have is that I drink so much water normally that when I start a "diet" plan I don't lose that quick 10lbs of water weight the first week because I don't have it.  Which can make sticking to a plan all that harder since I don't have any instant satisfaction.  I'm trying really hard to only weight myself once a week instead of every time I go to the bathroom.  I'm hoping that if I put some real time between it then I will see results.  I didn't get to work out yesterday because by the time we got back from grocery shopping it was 10:15 and I was exhausted.  I'm using all new recipe's this week!  For tonight I have planned cider-glazed chicken with browned butter-pecan rice (from October's issue of Cooking Light magazine).  It looks AMAZING!  I think my biggest issue will be portion control - like it always is.  

In other news, Elliot is crawling!  He's been scooting backwards for a while now, but he finally figured out how to crawl forward consistently!  


  1. I'm in Day 2 of my weight loss journey, too! I'm really excited to follow your blog and maybe get some recipes from you as well!

  2. I'm on Day 2 too! I'm glad I'm not the only one! Good luck! If you need any more recipe ideas I've got several from a cookbook from Better Homes and Gardens I'm trying.

  3. Yay ladies! It looks like a lot of people also started on Monday! Let's keep each other accountable!
