Hey everyone. To make a long story short, I'm trying to be a bit healthier. I would like to lose some weight, but I don't have too many goals. Since I'm not doing fall sports (possibly winter too), I've taken to doing exercise at home. I currently go 2.5mi. on the treadmill, and doing 20-30 minutes of various weight-exercises. I'm trying to eat healthy, but here's my normal diet:

BREAKFAST:
Jimmy Dean's breakfast sandwich
Glass of Iced Tea (0 calorie) or Orange Juice
Occassionally some fruit (banana, applesauce, apple)

LUNCH:
Sandwich (lunchmeat, cheese, mayo, lettuce)
Chips
Water, Vitamin Water Zero, or Sobe.
Dessert (Little Debbie snack or something small.
Fruit (Apple usually)
**I'll occasionally order school lunch, which is usually an entree, Gatorade, and maybe a side.**

DINNER:
Whatever Mom makes, typically a meat, veggie, and rice/potatoes/couscous.
She'll occasionally make something like Hamburger Helper (1-2 times/week).

I'm trying hard to cut down on snacking. I'm just using this log as a place to log my progress, and maybe get motivation or tips.

As a reference, I am 5'10" (maybe 1/4" shorter) and have a fairly broad build. I have shorter legs (30" inseam) and a longer torso.

LOG:
9/25/12 - 199lbs. Really wanting to get down to 180lbs., then see where I want to go from there.

You might need to cut down a little on the simple carbs (fruit, sugars etc.). I'm not too good with this stuff so I'll let someone else give you advice. Basically your body uses carbs before fat and you want to burn fat, so you need to eat less carbs.

Other than that it looks good and TechPB seems to be getting more active. There has been 3-4 new logs in the past week or two, I like it.

So I want to replace the fruits and sugars with something else?

cut out the mayo or make it light mayo on the lunch

I figured that's one of the biggest things: cheese and mayo.

Just replace some. An apple is fine, but remember that apples and other fruits have sugars. Complex carbs (Whole wheat is a big one) are ok for you. Whole grain crackers could be a replacement.

Looks good! I would cut out the mayo like picaboo said or change it to light mayo. The bread should also be changed too. Something like whole grain or just brown bread. Stay away from the white bread though.

.I never know what to put in these things.

Switch the breakfast sandwich out for something like a couple eggs with whole wheat toast. No iced tea for breakfast...milk or Oj. Cut out dessert, make it a once a week so you have something to look foreward to. You don't have enough water in your diet. 64oz on a day you aren't exercising and make sure you add more when you do. Also, cut out chips in your diet or.sub them out for a baked chip if you can't live without them.
