Hunger makes the ordinary extraordinary!

I'm trying to shed those last baby pounds so that I can comfortably fit into my work clothes. The problem with dieting is that simply knowing I can't eat the food makes me want it all the more! There are saltine crackers in my desk calling my name. How pathetic is that?!

Okay, here is what I'm doiong to loose my baby weight from Colt: Raw food at lunch, fruits and veggies, salads, cracked wheat or bulgur soaked in water and then made into tabbouleh salad, water, more water and the book from England, "I Can Make You Thin" with a guided imagery CD you listen to at least once a day (NOT while driving - you have to close your eyes), and a light meal in the evening. I only eat when I'm hungry, I eat what I want (within reason) and I stop when I'm full. We went to Jack in the Box and got a jumbo jack and fries and tacos. I ate 2 tacos and only 3/4 of the jumbo jack, gave Vernon the rest, I was full. I've lost 5 pounds since the first of the year. I'll have to get you the name of the author, I listen when I go to bed and before I wake up I have it set to go off and I wake up to him counting down to "You will waken feeling refreshed and full of energy, One."

Hmph. I'm trying a combination of my left over Jenny Craig food and Weight Watchers. I'm wearing my old clothes but they don't all zip up all the way. I can't stand it, but really, what did I expect when I continued to eat all that Christmas candy?

You could walk to work and that would would get you trim without dieting. I had some pants taken in before I left Houston and I need to pin them tighter now to keep them up. I typically walk about a mile a day. Unfortunately, I have no idea if I have lost weight or how much because I do not have a scale and I do not have a mirror bigger than a VHS tape. I just visualise how thin I am (although I know it's not true.)
