New Diet - Day 1 Hour 0

So, I've decided to do it. I am going on a diet. This will be part of my rest of the new year resolutions, albeit technically its my only. I am going to try with the aid of sparkpeople to consume 1500 calories or less daily. This is roughly equivalent to half my current intake. Of course I don't expect it to be easy and I am sure I will complain along the way, but it needs to be done. I don't want to go through the rest of my twenty's weighing over 300 lbs. The goal ultimately is to also start some exercise regiment and hopefully by year's end I will have lost 50 lbs. This isn't too hard a goal, I mean I am not going to go on a Biggest Loser style 24/7 weight loss frame of mind, I am sure I'll have my slips along the way. Regardless among the things I won't be partaking anymore: Soda, I know thats going to be a bitch. Additionally I am going to try to forgo my late night eating habits just before bedtime. I mean I don't have to eat, but I just do. So basically I am going to really try to get my 8, 8 ounce cups of water and probably continue drinking my V8 Fusion and that will be the extent of my drinking. I will also try to limit my meals to 400 calories, which is possible, but I will have to institute some sort of portion control. Man this is going to suck.
