Yesterday was actually pretty good. I drank 2 bottles of water (I have a feeling that I'm going to easily work my way up to 64 ounces/day), and I managed to keep my carbs to 10! I actually measured things and reassured myself that I was on the straight and narrow, so to speak. I had a piece of crustless quiche for breakfast, chicken w/mayo for lunch, 3 tbsps of salmon dip for a snack, cabbage with ground beef for dinner, and whipped cream (real whipped cream with very little sweetener) for dessert. I also had a bit of ricotta cheese later that night because I was really, really hungry. I know, I shouldn't eat late at night. I just get so hungry!

It popped in my head that I might stall from the cool whip thing, but then I remembered why I'm not bothering with weighing myself. I don't want to get caught up in the short-term drama of the fluctuating (or non-moving scale) and forget about the long-term process. I need to be focused on how I look/what I weigh a full year from now.

Today is my weird work day. I'm going to bring a decent dinner with me tonight and I need to stop and get gas, so I might buy some pork rinds so I have something to munch on. I woke up at noon today, which is not something I usually do in the middle of the week. I even went to bed around 2 last night so I would wake up at 10! And I did wake up at 10, exactly eight hours after I went to sleep, but I was all wrapped up in the blanket, and Tara was curled up beside me, and so I thought "Eh, just a few more minutes" and that turned into 2 more hours. Ugh.

Sometimes, when i realize this is probably going to be at least a 2 year commitment to get down to the most healthy weight, I despair a little bit. But then I remember I got through graduate school. If I can do that, I should be able to do two years of anything!

I work on the third floor on Thursday nights. I always take the elevator. Except tonight. Starting tonight, I take the stairs.

I noticed something tonight while I was washing my hands. My face is really, really clear. I'm not some sort if pizza face, usually, but I tend to have some bumps and zits, especially on my chin. But as of today? There's not a single zit on my entire face. It's really rather nice. And even remarkable (thus, I am remarking on it). I have to admit, even though it's only day 11, I'm already feeling better about myself in general.
