Day Negative One

Tomorrow is Day Zero which is the official first weigh in before actually beginning this Journey!
The other day I wrote about how I have been slowly making some changes to my food intake in order to be healthier and maybe have a weight loss side effect and much to Josie's dismay I have shed a good chunk of pounds in the past two months (and Josie - it's not all from cutting out non diet soda which I rarely drank at that point anyway :)

I'm not going to over do these posts but I'm going to at least try to do them once a week to update my progress and how much I am struggling to meet my goals.
Last night, as my last "crappy" dinner before starting my actual challenge I went out and had a nice huge plate of Chicken Chow Mein semi-spicy.  It was bloody tasty and while it wasn't as bad as something like a rack of ribs it still hit the spot quite well.  I'll be planning on doing a bad meal or day at least once a month depending on how everything else is going.

That being said - my current packed lunch fits almost perfectly in with my daily point allowance which is nice.  I'm not looking forward to lowering my points because that means I'm going to have to cut some things out or actually make healthier choices.  I guess that's one of the drawbacks of NOT being so far.

Other than some random weight loss my main (current) goal is to be able to fit into my hockey jersey again (by the time the season starts up).
While I still technically fit into it, I'm snug as a bug in a rug and that, as the Spanish speakers say, is no bueno.
