The holidays are over and I managed to only gain 1 pound in December. Even with eating cheesecake, pizza, Crunch n' Munch, and regular soda on New Year's Eve! Hurray! On 1-1-11, I began the Medical Weight Loss cleanse again. The cleanse is supposed to remove all carbs from the body and eliminate the body's craving for carbs and sweets.
Mike has promised to purchase me a really nice camera if I meet my 2 month goal. The goal and camera reward were my idea. Working towards a goal is extremely motivating for me. I've set the goal fairly high, but obtainable with good food choices and regular exercise.
My current exercise goal is to be walking/jogging/bike riding 10 miles each day by the end of January. I lack motivation to exercise when it's cold and gloomy outside. All I want to do when the temperature drops is to grab a hot drink, a throw, and curl up on the sofa with a good book. None of those activities are helpful in losing weight.

I didn't get all my vegetables, fruits, or grains in for today because I need to go grocery shopping. Hopefully, it will be less snowy tomorrow.
