Yay! The tracking of calories and protein worked! I dutifully logged everything I put into my mouth...averaged about 900 - 1200 calories per day. I was definitely less inclined to 'cheat', knowing that I would be writing everything down in a book.
My goal for next week will be to break through the 190's barrier! Can't wait to see those numbers! Thanks for your encouragement and tips. To my Christian friends, have a blessed Easter weekend. Just remember, each boiled egg is only 75 calories and packs over 6 grams of protein!!
