Week #1: Update, Carrie W.

My First Week:

Since I hadn't really come up with a HEP and I'm not really sure this constitutes one, but I really hate to limit my eating when I first start to try to lose weight. This may seem counterproductive, but if I tell myself I can't eat something I want it. Typically I start out by working out quite a bit (though this is the first time I've really tried since having a child, so I don't have as much time) and then gradually start not eating certain foods. The main thing for my HEP at this point is that I'm avoiding soda/carbonated beverages/pop (whatever you call it - I prefer calling it "soda"). We are also staying at home for our meals and making our own food, so even though it isn't low fat we are trying to eat foods that are better for us because we are making them at home and not eating fast food.
