In the past two weeks, I've done so good cutting out the fast food from my diet. I've gone through the drive through a couple times for the kids, and gone home and made myself a sandwich. Well, a few days ago I did have one chicken nugget and a couple sips of sweet tea. But overall I think I've done an awesome job of changing my habits and resisting temptation!

Today I went through Jack in the Box and lost my resolve. However, I think it's okay to treat my cravings every now and then as long as it's within reason. I've read that dieting is rarely successful when you deny yourself all the time. So I ended up getting myself lunch. But I didn't cheat myself entirely - I logged it in my food diary on myfitnesspal.com and WOW - it's one thing to know that fast food is bad, and another thing entirely to see all your calories eaten up with one meal. And I only ate half my burger - sheesh.

I've only lost another pound in the past few days which brings me up to 5 in the last two weeks or so. Which I think is a good start. But I'm thinking about adding in some excersize to help things along. Now, I am a person who has never excersized a day in her life,so this should be interesting... I've thought about joining a gym or getting a membership at the YMCA, so as to have babysitting while I work out, but right now financially that isn't in the cards. I've heard some good things about the Insanity workout, but before I take that financial plunge I've decided to start with Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred which seems to have decent reviews on Amazon and I've had some friends who did the program and liked it also. After I make it through the 30 days I'll look at buying myself the Insanity workout as a reward!

It's just a matter of starting the darn thing and getting over my fears and nervousness about working out. No one but the kids to see me and laugh at me in my own living room, and a little pain is good, right? :)

I've known a lot of people that have had success by allowing themselves one free day. They still have to watch portion sizes but they can eat anything they want on that one day (Perhaps a Sunday) but then the next day, it's back to the diet and exercise. It seems to help to be able to put off cravings by saying "I'll eat that Sunday."

Having those "cheat meals" is very important! I had them and still lost the weight. However, I limited them to only once or twice per week.
