I want chocolate so much

So far I have not been doing very spectacularly with this whole no dessert/ weight loss thing. Although Sarah and I did go on walks Tues, Wed, and Thurs, we had to skip Friday because of a doctor appointment I had. And then Bryan and I each had one cupcake at our nephew's birthday party today, even though our dessert day was yesterday (Georgia Mud Fudge blizzard from Dairy Queen = yummm). And we're having friends over tonight who said they're bringing dessert. However, I would like to say that I have still eaten a lot less junk this week than I would have without our little dessert deal thing. For instance, I wanted some chocolate about fifty billion times this week and instead of having candy I had one of those 90 calorie pack things. Or fruit snacks. Or cheese and crackers. Still not the same as eating a piece of celery or something, but certainly a huge step up... at least in my book. Anyway, just thought I'd update you all since I couldn't really think of anything else to write about.

good job katie!

you should try logging what you're eating online. i did an online food diary on self.com and it took so much work to put in all the calories that once i put in my meals for the day, i didn't want to eat anything extra for fear of the extra work it would take to input it. sounds silly, but it worked for me. you could also just keep a pen & paper food journal.

keep up the good work. with lots of baby steps you'll get there :).

I think the dessert-once-a-week plan is a good one, and sometimes other things will come up. Good job!

GEORGIA MUD FUDGE IS THE BEST!!! Of course, you obviously already knew that. Just remember to get it with Oreos instead of pecans. ;) hehe.
