    So I just turned 19 a couple days ago and have been a bit over weight since the age of 14. Actually "a bit over weight" is an understatement. So I've decided to give my self the ultimate birthday present, a hot body! My plan is to basically cut out most carbs and sugars and allowing myself about 1000-1200 calories a day + working out 3 days a week and going for half an hour walks the days I don't hit up the gym.
    My goal is to lose 50 pounds and I'm giving my self till may 2011!
    I hope keeping a food diary works!

    Day one:
    1. 2 eggs with 2 cubes of cheese melted in (yum)
    2. Half a can of tuna with green onions and a teaspoon of mayonnaise
    3. 1 cabbage roll
    4. Two cubes of dark chocolate
    5. A cup of tea with no sugar
    6. Half an avocado with lemon
    Approximate calorie count : 700
    Unfortunately I woke up at 2pm today so i couldn't fit a lot of food into my day, one thing i need to work on is my sleeping pattern! Too much sleep kills weight loss

    Weight loss in pounds: 0
    Pounds left to lose: 50

    So it's 5:00 in the evening and unfortunately I wasn't able to sleep again last night so I woke up at 3pm! How can I fix this awful sleeping pattern?!
    Day #2
    1. 3 egg omelet with a cube of cheese and a tablespoon of green onions

    I plan to eat two more times today before 10pm to have a total calorie intake of at least 900 calories

    2. Tea
    3. More tea

    So I didn't eat anymore today because nothing that was available followed my diet, I was out with my boyfriend and unfortunately all that I could eat was fries hotdogs or popcorn and I'm not ready to put that in my body quite yet. Tomorrow will be different, i in no way intent to eat this little during my day, I'm just going to have to suck it up and wake up early so that i can fit my 1000 calories in!

    Calorie count: 330

    So today is starting off very well, my sleeping pattern is finally fixed so I've managed to wake up at 9:30 am!

    3. 5 vodka tonics (two double)
    4. 2 bowls of soup

    So I went on an un expected trip to las Vegas and although I didn't eat like a complete pig I did go over my 1200 calorie limit.
    But back on track starting tomorrow!

    So I never did go back on track and totally failed at not eating carbs and counting calories, as a matter of fact I didn't even pay attention to anything I was eating. But I didn't gain any weight so I'll just say I'm starting at square one!
    I can't even bring myself to counting all the calories that I had today so I'll just count starting tomorrow. Ugh one month behind my schedule!
