Score for Sherry

I added in 240 unnecessary calories but guess what.............I did it..............this is a great accomplishment...............sort of.

I drank 80 ounces of liquid--not to include coffee!!!!

I drank 4 bottles of G2 (low cal Gatorade).

I know, I know, I know I should've drank that much water. But for those that know me, I don't typically consume 64 ounces of any and all liquids combined. Seriously, it's a great day when I get down 32 ounces. So for me to consume 80 is far beyond the norm! I hope tomorrow to do 2 bottles G2, 2 bottles water. Baby steps...baby steps.

Hey, at least it wasn't 80 ounces of coke. G2 has electrolytes!

Here's my good for the day:

Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Carrots
Salad with turkey and swiss
Dill Green Beans---GROSS
Ravioli Florentine (250)
Broccoli and Carrots with Ranch
2 tsp Mozzarella and Provolone melted
And...1/2 BLT

Let me tell you about the BLT. I have been craving this since yesterday. I have consumed more unnecessary calories by trying to find something else to replace this craving (broccoli, carrots, and ranch). Replacing it with a healthy snack is a good option, but I ended up eating it anyway. I am a FIRM believe that you should give in to cravings--but with heavy moderation. Eat ONE bite of the cheesecake--not the whole thing. This takes a lot of will power. But back to the BLT. This think was like 110 calories. I had 2 pieces of center cut bacon--50 calories. It had less calories and fat than the turkey bacon I normally buy. I had one piece of bread (they're big pieces) and cut it in half. And I added 3 slices of tomato (no lettuce...guess it's just a BT sandwich). And now my craving is satisfied!

That's all I have tonight. Not very motivating am I? WRONG. It doesn't matter if you reach out to one person or ten thousand. If what you said made a difference in one person's life, that's an accomplishment!

UPDATE: I drank 20 ounces of water. That's 100 ounces of liquid in a day! (Actually mor elike 120 if you count the coffee).

Chug, chug, chug. LOL I have started walking again. I found the pin to my treadmill and am back on track now. I try to walk as fast as I can which about kills me but I do it. And can I tell you how much torture seeing those damn peanut butter eggs sitting on my table are doing to me. I had 2 pieces of easter candy. 2!!! Thats like a record or something. Anyway I'm determined to lose even more weight this time. And BTW I am still at the same weight I was when I lost the 30. Yay!! I didn't gain any back. Go me!!!!

Way to go on downing those liquids -- I need to start paying attention to that again! Sorry I've been MIA -- I've been in recovery mode since I got back, but it's time to get back to my normal routine and catching up on my favorite blogs is at the top of my list!
