Dieting Sucks!

I decided to only weight myself once a week so I didn't get discouraged after week one I lost 4.5 pounds. Which I guess is good but I want to actually notice and feel smaller.
I am just counting calories and only eating 1200 a day. When you are being strict on how many calories you eat, you find yourself doing crazy things. Like licking the containers. By darn it, I have to count those calories, I better get them!
The reason I am dieting is because Josh was honored to be part of "The President's Club" at his work. I think this means when playing scrategories and you have to list a "President", if the letter is J or A, Then I can now put Josh. But anyway the company is paying for the club to go on a expenses paid trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. That means swim suits, in front of the people Josh works with. I'm terrified!
Wish me luck for week 2. I'm shooting to hit 10 pounds in 2 weeks.

Nice work! That's great! Do you run? Seriously that is what finally worked for me. I don't think I have ever been able to "diet" especially since I don't like salad or veggies...sort of a problem! When is Mexico? Keep up the good work!

4 1/2 is a lot! I hope you have a good time in Mexico. But be careful with those calories, it could affect your milk supply :)
