If you really want to lose weight and get healthy, you really need to do your homework.  It's like chemistry class and your body is the classroom. And every classroom is slightly different. So it's good that you take notes! That's why www.myfitnesspal.com is a great textbook for you to bring to class.

Why is it a good textbook? Because in it there's a very cool, very complete calorie counter to help you keep track of all that stuff you stick in that face of yours.

Do you know how many calories are in a slice of sausage pizza? Apparently neither did I when I ate four slices. (and it was damn good).

Homework assignment #1) When you are going to be bad, consult Myfitnesspal.com first. That may keep the pizza monging down to under four slices. (see table below)

Homework assignment #2) Understand what triggers the cause of homework assignment #1. For me, It's extreme tiredness. When I'm tired I just lose total focus of my ultimate goal, which is to be at or below a total ten pound weight loss for Thursdays weigh in.

Now that I recognize the reason I went off the reservation, so to speak, yesterday, how do I correct it? Good question! And here's the solution. Have a healthy meal already prepared and ready to pop into the microwave. I am typically in a state of exhaustion on Sundays and I should have had a healthy-low calorie, low fat meal waiting for me, if I would have just planned ahead.

So... yesterday I went over my daily calories and fat goal. But today is a brand new day! I'm back on the horse and we are heading south on those scale numbers.
