I havent gone out and bought that scale yet so I dont quite know what my starting weight is. I plan on going out and getting one today. I just need to know where I'm at to start this. I officially started my diet on Sunday, April 20th. I have been drinking water (lots of it), juice, milk or smoothies since then. I am trying to drink about 100 oz. of H20 a day if at all possible. Which I've been able to do so far. I've been eating mainly salads, crackers, fruit. I'm leary of any diet plans because I am a picky eater anyway. This is what I ate yesterday..... Crackers and an apple for lunch. Last night had a small salad and a chicken pot pie. If I get cravings for snacks I usually munch on crackers or fruit. This morning I've done about 20 lunges, 20 squats and 20 sit-ups. Each day I'm going to try to increase the number that I do by 5. By the way, what are some good exercizes for the upper body and arms? I need to work on them as well. Any ideas and tips would be appreciated!!! I'm about to go jog. Starting out slowly of course. This is my first "real" day of exercising!!! I'm eager to start. I may attempt some push ups too but forsee that going very badly LOL!!! I will post my weight once I find a scale. Desiree'
