I did it!

I went to the store and didn't buy any dumb food like chips and pizza rolls. To comfort myself I bought a People magazine.

Why - why would I put myself through this???

Because I want to lose a little weight (specifically 10lbs) don't laugh I have a good reason! 10lbs will put me back in all of my pre-maternity clothes - and with Charlotte's one year birthday fast approaching in 20 days I'm motivated.

I must confess the very minute I set myself into a diet and exercise routine my mind revolted. I haven't eaten chips in 3 months and what do I suddenly crave, CRAVE?!? It's like I have a split personality that's taunting me. Suddenly I want, desperately want junk foods that I couldn't have cared less about before the diet started. I swear a diet is all mind control.

Onto the exercise part - I've walked 2 miles every day for the last 4 days. Not GREAT but it will do for the first week.

Please cheer me on! I need the encouragement.
