Week 1 of Diet

I began a diet program last Thursday to help shed some of this extra weight I have been carrying around after the baby (the baby that is fast becoming a toddler and has left me with no excuse for not losing the weight.)
So the goal is to not only diet but to relearn healthy eating habits`. I have developed such bad eating habits and it has really caused my weight to slowly creep up. I now eat 600-800 non protein calories a day. I am learning how to snack better and plan better meals. This week started out a little difficult, but my motivation to lose weight kept me going. It is now the end of week one and I am finding it easier to choose healthier options and do not find myself so hungry at the end of the day. I actually had calories to spare last night after supper so I decided to treat myself with a sugar free fudge Popsicle. I have lost 5 pounds so far and it has given me more motivation for the coming week. My goal is to lose 5 pounds a week until Christmas. If I can do that then I will reach my goal weight just in time for all of the holiday pictures. The ones that I am terrified to take right now. I have also noticed a surge in energy. I am not sure if it is from more exercise, losing weight or from simply not being loaded down by sweets and carbs. I notice I can get a lot more done during the day and have energy to play with the kids at the end of the day.
I hope that this coming week is just as successful as the last.

    From what I have observed, the things to avoid is oil and sugar and it does cause a difference. (of course with some daily brisk walking)
