A RUDE AWAKENING!! Just what I need!!

I joined a new gym that is only a five minute drive from my house! yeah!!! I have been working out for about a week when i finally got the nerve to get my body fat done by calipers. I went in on the 15th feeling and looking bloated and just yuck!! i asked for a female trainer and of course there wasn't one available. A trainer manager came up and started talking to me. telling me he could do it for me and that he won't judge me. he's been a trainer/nutritionist for 13 years. he also told me that he has three kids which made me feel a lot better. so i let him check my body fat. and i'm not going to post it. about 10% more than i thought it was. i'm surprised i didn't fall over. i felt gross and that is all that i needed to pull my head out and finally hit my goals that i set march 30 2006. He sat down with me and figured out a meal plan for me that is super clean and promised me that i will get great results if i stick to it at least 8 weeks. so i'm doing it. lucky for me i did drink a protein shake on the way to the gym but i didn't plan for no more coke, no chocolate and del taco!!!! i have become an emotional eater too which doesn't help. he also told me that i needed to lift heavy weight. only 8 reps about 4 to 5 sets. what? lift weights! i really don't enjoy lifting. there is a class at fitness works that i love. it is called body pump and it is a full body work out with weights. it kicks my butt, but i can tell that i'm getting stronger already. he told me to take that class at least three times a week. add some lifting and i can do some cardio if i want.. i have lost three pounds already! of just flushing out my system with lots of water, no coke or fast food. I would love any ideas for some snacks/ meals that are close to what i need to stick to. i would love support!! i crave chocolate more than coke. ha . that surprised me.
