First week - down 4 pounds!

That's right, baby, 4 pounds! I've been happy dancing - more calories burned!

I officially went on plan on 4/6. And we hit the road last weekend - every meal was restaurant prepared. Well, except for the lousy selection at the hotel. (They used to be so much better, but that's another story.) It's been easier so far than the first time I followed this program. I keep my portions in check (until it comes to the freebies - then I go nuts), eat on a regular schedule, and make better choices by default.

Fruit or veggies are present at every meal and snack. Protein choices are lower fat. I love cheese - always have - and still eat it. I just make sure I'm having lower fat versions or planning the indulgence around the rest of my day. And chocolate is still a part of my plan, just not everyday.

Clean eating, baby! It kicks butt!

Hey Chickie ... you are one of the only reasons I am missing CM. Glad to see your 4 pounds! I started a "lifestyle change" on Friday the 10th and have lost 4.2 pounds since then. It feels good to know I"m not doing anything weird or off the wall, just eating right and being sensible. Are you feeling better about yourself? I am SO proud of you!
