Week 1=3.5 lbs. gone!!

So, I have completed the 1st week of my diet and I am down 3.5 lbs.!! Yay..I know it may not seem like a whole lot, but I am seeing the lbs. drop and I am excited! Usually, by now I am like sooo over the diet and exercise, but I am more motivated and determined this time around. I actually feel alot better about myself and just thinking about the end result gets me pumped! I am not following a particular diet, I am just eating ALOT of chicken, fresh veggies, salad, fruit and drinking nothing but water. I will have a cup of coffee in the morning, but only the coffee that I make. It has been killing me not to have Starbucks!! I love that place and was going to get a coffee a day from there. The calories and fat in their coffee (at least the ones that I like) is outrageous and I just really want to lose the weight and had to make a sacrifice :( Everyday, I wake up and look at pics from after I had Avery and it totally motivates me to get back to that. I want to lose at least 15 lbs. by my b-day and I totally think I can do it. I believe in the next 2 weeks, James and I are going to buy a treadmill for our house and I can't wait. It is just alot easier for me to go run or walk here at the house bc the weather is just soo unpredictable. We went out to James's grandparents house the other night and I got on their treadmill and walked/ran for a long time and it was great! So, I want one for our house now :) 3.5 lbs. down and 21.5 to go!!!!!
