This is a very high volume diet. I'll have to post a picture to show you just how big lunch and dinner are. The point for me is to get satisfied. Thursday, today, is the day I get on the scale, and I'm still at the same weight as last week, but there are definitely places where I can make my menu even cleaner if I have to. I followed the advice of a poster over at TTmembers.com and tried on my smallest pair of jeans and they are definitely a bit looser, so I'm not going to stress over the lack of movement on the scale, just yet. Wow, I am going to have to get up earlier in order to post before walking Tippy. It was so dark when I got up this morning that a walked right into him and nearly fell over. Later: the workout, and how I got trough an emotional slump that was urging me to eat, eat eat!
