This diary consist of  calories I consume on a daily basis. I wanted to post this and maybe help others get ideas, motivation, or just looking for menu items to lose weight.

If you are interested in viewing, all the posts will be in the “Diet” section ↑ above. I had previously quit smoking and lost 95+ pounds over the last 3 years through healthy diet and exercise. I’ve put back on 9, which doesn’t seem like a lot. However; I’ve got to keep the weight at bay or I would easily slip back into old habits. Anyway, if you have any questions, please comment below. I’ll get back with you as soon as I can. Thanks for viewing!

So far from logging this diet diary, I’ve lost a little over an inch in my waist and about 4 pounds. Paying attention to calorie consumption  really pays off. This is proof that you don’t have to starve or resist your favorite foods to lose weight! Better yet, INCHES!


Healthy eating food diary. These are just 9 ideas of meals you can have on a daily basis and still lose weight.

**Disclaimer: I’m not a nutritionist or dietician. Please follow specific dietary guidelines based on your body. These meals represent a low calorie diet with higher than average fat percentages. Since I’m over 30, I feel that fat in the diet is more beneficial to my joints.

I do exercise daily if possible by going to the gym, power walking, jogging, kickboxing or light muscle work, squats, lunges, crunches, etc. If it’s raining outside I go to the gym or do a “Walk Away the Pounds” video with Leslie Sansone. These are super easy and really helped my weight loss.
