Comments: It was hard to be on campus from 9:15am-7:40pm, with horrendous food everywhere. It is actually challenging to find anything healthy, so I tried to bring as much food from home as I could, but it felt weird not eating very much fresh food considering it would've gone bad as the day went on. Being on campus, the place I used to eat muffins, drink Mountain Dews, and order Korean Quesadillas really sucked. It'll get easier - but this was the first real day since I started this diet where I had to really sit on campus and resist temptation all day. The weight is not coming off fast enough, I'm still insanely hungry in between meals, and I'm miserable. Overly stressed, overwhelmed, and just blah. I put way too much pressure on myself, whatever task is at hand. I've always been that way. I received encouragement from my friend Kelly, my mom, and my Spark Friends - but I just need to go to sleep and start a new day. My dad, who is now eating healthier, exercising more, and trying to lose weight too, suggested he and I take long walks in my parents' hilly neighborhood on non gym days. Just the two of us, talking about our progress and things. I'll hold him to that. I really hope we bond over this. He heard I was discouraged today (I had called my mom), and I hope that didn't discourage him. I want to continue to be a good example for him, which will hopefully, in the future, keep my outward mood positive despite how I might feel on the inside. I gotta say though, I LOVE how low calorie soft rye bread is vs. the white I was eating before. Definitely helps, because a piece of bread and peanut butter or regular butter is definitely filling.
