Another thing Shelly, cut the soda.  Some pointers that have stuck with me are from articles I've read...1 - just get up and get moving.  anything is better than nothing and 2 - don't drink your calories. 

1 12 oz can of pepsi has 150 calories in it!  That's over 10% of my daily allowance!

Starve!  LOL

No not really I just have gotten use to watching my portion sizes.  I also try very hard to log in some kind of exercise even if it is just 20 minutes on the stationary bike.

Why do you think I exercise so much?  Because I like food and want those extra calories - rofl!

Your calories are based on your weight. The more weight you start with, the more calories you get. I'm bigger so I get more. Not an altogether great thing. I will say seeing how many calories come with drinks, I've switched to almost all water. I also drink a lot of Crystal Light lemonade now.

I found something new called ICE.  It comes in all kinds of different flavors and because it is new the stores have been having it on sale.

Well, I am the biggest horse in the barn yard, I am allotted 1,862 calories a day! And I was under today, even with the trip to Pittsburgh and eatting at Taco Bell!! LOL

I did get in 30mins of walking. Just from going up to mom and dads and then walking from one end of the hospital to the other twice.

I was under 447 calories, and drank 10 (or so) glasses of water.
