Sage Mommy Summer Weight Loss Challenge

I am just a little more roly-poly than I was last summer, 15 pounds to be exact. I know what caused it: going to school, sitting on my backside, and eating fast and easy lunches. As summer looms nearer and my pants loom tighter, I need to do something. And that something can't involve real dieting, because I need my brain in good working order and I can't see dieting while surrounded by junk food at school. So here's my healthy, non-diet weight loss plan:

1. No white flour or sugar.
2. Drink green tea with every meal.
3. Drink a glass of water every waking hour.
4. Eat a serving of vegetable protein and a serving of high fiber food at every meal.
5. Fifteen minutes of strenuous, raise-the-heart-rate exercise every day.

Obviously I can't change what I've eaten today (I had blueberry pancakes for breakfast and kettle chips for lunch while running from biology to chemistry), but I'll be posting a picture and my daily weigh in tomorrow. Please leave a message if you want to join me. I'm going to make a widget with all participant's blog addresses and my current weight.

Let's see how much we can lose without dieting!
