You Are What You Eat

Yesterday I was on the phone w/ my best friend. We mainly talked about weight-loss, dieting, and exercise. It is normal for us to discuss these topics daily. Yesterday she asked me what I ate in a typical day. So I gave an answer.... and now I think I must have sounded a little weird. I listed everything I ate every day, the caloric content of each food, and what time I ate it. Psycho! Here is my rundown:

Breakfast- 8:30 am
2 Egg Whites- 34
1 Egg- 75
2 Slices F.F. Chz- 60
2 Slices Healthy Ch. Ham- 30
2 GG's Crispbread- 32
1 Laughing Cow Light Chz.-35

Lunch- 12:30
Salad- 15
Salsa- 30
Tomatoes- 20
1/2 Cup FF Cot. Chz- 70
2 Slices Healthy Ch. Ham- 30
Pickle- 5
2 GG's Crispbread- 32
1 Laughing Cow Light Chz.- 35

Snack- 4 pm
Pria Bar- 170
Carb/Sugar Control Yogurt- 60
Dinner- 7:30
Chicken Cutlet- 150
1/2 Cup FF Cot. Chz.- 70
Tomatoes- 20
Pickle- 5

I have to eat the same food, at roughly the same time, everyday. If I don't I become unstructured. If I am unstructured I will just eat what I want, whenever I want. And then I am right back where I started. I know that in order to lose this weight this is what I have to do. But geesh! Oh yeah, I also am drinking over a gallon of water a day. I just keep chewing gum and repeating my mantra in my mind: "To have what we have never had, we must do what we have never done."
