11:45am: 1 gala apple, 1 cup of Yoplait yogurt, glass of water
1:11pm: been chewing gum for an hour, really hungry ... ate 1 granola bar (180 cals)
3:40pm: hungry again, 2 tbsp walnut oil mixed with water
3:45pm: hunger seems to have immediately dissapated

I noticed it when I got back from vacation ... my pants were a bit tight. It was a sad reality.
Well ... no more I say! The line in the sand has been drawn and in the nick of time too. I had made a vow to myself when I crossed the 200 lbs. line last year that I would never go back accross. This morning, after a solid 30 minute run and 20 minute cycle, I weighed in and was a bit shocked to see the number read 198.5!
It was embarassing.
But I am committed to getting back on track with the help of the Shangri-la diet.
I'm back to taking 3 flax oil capsules in the morning.
I'm back to eating a light lunch ... apple, yogurt and some crackers.
I'm back to taking two tablespoons of walnut oil at 4:00pm.
I'm back to eating a big salad for dinner and then calling it quits for the night.
I'm back to regular exercise.
