February 19, 2010--Dieting Scorecard (226.5 lbs)

Morning Weight: 226.5 pounds (see note below)
Diet Goal: 225 pounds (5.5 pounds lost, 1.5 pounds to go)

6:00--45 minutes walking
7:00--260 calories
10:00--100 calories
12:00--600 calories
5:00--260 calories
9:30--350 calories (the gap between 5 and 9:30 was spent taking basketball photos--and resisting the urge to buy candy at the concession stand)

Daily total = 1,570 calories

Note: I'm not complaining about 5 pounds lost in 2 days, but I'm realistic enough to know that this isn't the norm and those 5 pounds would come back in a flash if I falter. The bigger news is that I'm comfortable with the idea of changing my work hours from 7-4 to 6-4 with that first hour being devoted to walking. That extra hour spent at work will pay off big even though it won't change my paycheck.
