Day 3..

So far, so good..I had 1 razor thin (ok, pencil thin) fry at work BUT no soup, no croutons, no salad dressing!! Breakfast consisted of dipping a banana into a box (1 portion-sized) of Cheerios. I had 2 (very small) slices of Margherita pizza for lunch and an Arugula sald with chicken breast, avocado and balsamic vinegar. Had a snack of Stonyfield peach yogurt this far. I made a lo-fat dill dip to make the celery stix go down easier!

Believe it or not, my face is thinner!! This is important because any picture taken of me recently makes me look like I have a double chin. So this is a definite BONUS!

Been drinking LOTS of water.."flushing" the toxins right outta me! It's easy to drink a lot of water at work but at home it's a bit more difficult. I can go hours without drinking anything..

No gym tonight. Instead, I went to Sears to buy some workout clothes for myself. Got a couple of things. I'll go to the gym tomorrow evening after my massage. I'm kinda looking forward to it!

Work was slow today. It was "Buy 2 Lunches, Get 3rd free" day. I refer to this as the "free sex with your meal day" because I ALWAYS get screwed on the tip!! People are supposed to tip on the amount BEFORE the discount but 90% of the time, they don't. And there's no tactful way to remind them of this, either. Today we tried showing them the bill before the discount and then presented them with the discounted bill. No luck. I give up.

I've been training a new guy the past 2 days. He's in his 50's, very overweight and extremely slow on his feet. When you work lunches you really need to be a "speed demon". These customers are on lunch break and usually only have an hour (at most) to choke down a meal. So I don't see this guy lasting long at all. No lie- it took him 5 minutes to refill a soda!!

I'm craving (BAD) things today..gotta stay busy, gotta stay focused!!

Gonna go and get some stuff done. Thank you everyone for leaving such positive messages! I TRULY appreciate them! You're keeping me motivated!!

G'night...peace, out!

hello!!  I guess buying work-out clothes is in itself a motivator--after all you are getting new clothes out of it; works for me!!  one question, what is Margherita pizza?  I've never heard of it before.
Keep up the good work, before you know it, you'll be at your tarkget weight!!  -Jan

Boy, you've got more willpower than I do.  Everytime I decide to diet I end up pigging out by day 3  LOL.  Of course I have an excuse to pig out now (I'm almost 5 months pregnant).  Keep up the good work!  :o)  Kyla
