I mean.. This is ONE WEEK's worth of food. I'm slightly intimidated. At least for the first week I don't have to worry about school and preparing food. That will definitely be nice.
I'm planning on cleaning out my refrigerator and pantry on January 2nd, so if anyone wants our excess food, please feel free to come and take it. It's not all junk, it's just stuff we're not allowed to have (pasta, Hamburger Helper, lunch snacks, brown rice, etc.).
Oh, by the way, we're officially starting this plan on January 3rd, so as to avoid New Years and the garbage that will be consumed during that time. January 2nd will be when I purchase everything on the afore-mentioned list and also when I rid our cabinets of excess food, and then by the 3rd, we'll be good to go!
I was talking to Husband at dinner tonight about what I am most excited for with this new diet plan. My whole life I have tried dieting and never had ultimate success (obviously). What I'm looking forward to is, once I lose some weight (even if it's not all the way down to my goal weight) being able to say that I actually did it. I've never had that kind of victory before because it never worked. I think once I know I can do it, it will be that much easier to maintain because I will have done it before. Because as it's always stood "I haven't ever been able to, so it must not be possible."
I want to make it a possibility.
