The Number for today is "6"

Remember when we were younger and for some of us, yesterday, when we watched Sesame Street and they told us what the number for the day was. Don’t act like you don’t still watch Sesame Street, and yes I do! Well the number for today is “6”.

For the last two weeks I have been fighting my weakness for breads; so far so good. And because of that I am officially down 6 pounds. I have started walking again and though my legs feel like jelly, it feels good to know I have accomplished a few short term goals.

My new goal is to actually eat 6 meals a day… especially breakfast (which I really don’t eat). I don’t eat large meals in a day but I do like to snack. So I am now snacking on baked vegetable chips and fruits. But I am working on portion size and snacks of substance. 
I am drinking A LOT of water! I am striving for at least 176 oz of water, which is 11 bottles in a day. I have been accomplishing that at least three times a week. Shoot, 11 bottles is a lot of water… and too much of anything is a bad thing.

So this is not a diet fad… this is a lifestyle change! So when they ask, “So you are dieting?”… answer…”No, I am eating healthy”.


  1. I always say that, too. I'm not dieting...I'm experiencing a 'lifestyle change'. Keep up the good work! :)

  2. Thanks cuz! Gotta go something different if I want something different!
