Turning over a new leaf

Ok, today is the day I get back on the dietary straight and narrow. For real this time--I mean it! I've been eating everything that isn't nailed down pretty much for the last month. It makes me really mad at myself, and then I eat more junk. What is wrong with me?? I'm up 7lbs as of this morning. (Although I weighed myself about an hour ago, and am down a pound from this morning--so some of it must be water!)

I had donuts every day this week except today. Two of them yesterday, in fact! I am completely out of control. I'm trying to regain control. Today a girl at work baked apple pies and brought them in, and I didn't have any. It's not that hard to resist apple pie, it's donuts, chocolate cake, candy, etc. that are hard to leave alone! So 3 weeks from tomorrow is my 36th birthday. I need to be 7lbs lighter by then, which should be pretty doable. Then I can have cake and a good birthday dinner. The following week I go to Chicago to visit my friend Clayton. So I want to be thin for my trip. Clayton hasn't seen me since I lost weight, so I want to be at my thinnest and most fabulous! :)

Today I behaved myself. No junk at all. I even snacked on baby cucumbers. Slightly less satisfying than candy, but it makes me hate myself a lot less. I also ran on the treadmill for 1/2 hour. I much prefer walking outside, but it gets dark so early now and Nick doesn't like to go with me. I live in a safe neighborhood, but I don't like walking alone in the dark. (partly because I'm night blind, partly because I'm a little girl and don't like being raped and murdered!)

I realize this is a big rambling pile of crap, but oh well. It's my pile of crap, so suck it! :) I'll keep you posted on the weight loss.

You can do it! 7 lbs in 3 problem. I can't resist the doughnuts, candy, etc. either.

What? You don't like to be raped and murdered? What's that about. hehehe

If you encourage me, I'll encourage you. I feel like all I want to do is eat since getting home. I'm trying to be good, but it's hard. I'm up six pounds from vacation (kinda) but the only number that counts is what I see on Sunday morning.

And Nessa, I feel like I've gone overboard on cheese since I've been home. On Friday night I had a Roma Salad, on Thursday for a snack I at the rest of the Swiss I had in the fridge. And I just had a string cheese for a snack. I'm going to be all bound up for a week! (Yeah, I know, TMI!!!)

Walt, have a fiber one bar to go with your cheese! ;) I like the chocolate ones. Archerr likes the peanut butter ones, so they must both be good! Thanks for the support, kids!
