Project Tamara: Food Logs March 5 – 11

This is the start of Project Tamara: Food Logs. As I stated in my Project Tamara blog post, Tamara is trying to lose 100+ pounds. The purpose of these food logs is to not only help her, but to help you or someone you know or love. I will be updating my blog weekly with what she has eaten, calorie counts, weight, measurements and other things. Depending on when you are looking at these posts and want to follow the whole set, just go to the Google search link in the navigation panel and type in “Tamara” (without quotes) and it will bring up everything I have written about her, the initial post, and her food logs.

This is Tamara’s inaugural week and she is just working out the kinks; there will be more information posted once we find out what works for her.
