I'm never going to survive...unless I get a little crazy.*

When it comes to eating I'm a bit like that girl with a curl...you know the one, When she was good,She was very good indeed,but when she was bad she was horrid!

Honestly when I make up my mind to stick to something I do and then I'm so good! I have turned down things that I love when I'm good. I know when I'm good I have the will of steel, I can turn down all my favorites even when literally placed in front of me. Then something happens..something always does. I don't know how it starts. Maybe with "just a taste" then a few days later "a bite" and suddenly I'm thinking "OK I will start again on Monday." Only it's only Wednesday and somehow the knowledge that I'm going to be "good" again on Monday creates a feeding frenzy. Two donuts and a bag of chips in one day? Of course!
I know I'm setting myself up in a vicious dieting cycle.
Funnily enough I only identified it as I was typing!

So of course this Monday I'm starting again..well actually I'm starting on Sunday. Figured it was March 1st so why not start then? But what is going to change this time? Well this time I'm going to do something a little bit crazy....

Starting today I'm going to take a photo of my scale, with me on it. My numbers are going to be here in all their weighty glory. Basically I'm going to embarrass myself into sticking to it! So here for all to see is my starting weight...

Some stats:

  1. I'm 5'6.5"(that half inch is really important!)
  2. I'm 31 years old
  3. According this online BMI calculator it's 26.8 which is overweight.

*Kudos to you if you know this song lyric!

I do know the song lyrics, but kudos to YOU for sharing this. It sounds like you can absolutely do this if you put your mind to it, and this will only make you stronger. Good luck girl!

Hey girl we are in the same boat, i posted my weight a while back and it has totally made me accountable!! Good luck, you can do it!

Wow ... you're brave. I don't know if I'd post that on my blog. (For the record, I'm bouncing between 159-160, and I'm 5'8" and a bit.)

Oh, and in August 2007, I weighed about 185 lbs

Did I write this blog?? That is totally me. I was doing SO good for a month and lost 12 pounds. And now I have been eating EVERYTHING. I am still exercising. But I am eating cake, combos, cookies. Ugh! It's disgusting! lol..
Hopefully I get everything back on track before I gain back the 12 pounds I already lost..

I am a total victim to the 'just a little bite' philosophy. Good luck. I awarded your blog a blog award. http://neverabridezilla.blogspot.com/2009/03/my-first-blog-award.html.

I'm about 5'8" and i weigh just under 159. ugH. I used to weigh a bit less. But i started eating likea pig - thanks to our hermit-inducing weather that makes us want to cuddle under blankets and eat.

I need to diet too!
