Dieting Sucks.

As you may or may not know, I started dieting last November. I even joined the now-defunct Ladies of Loserville blog ‘party’ to help with the process. Knowing that I’d never make it if I set the hefty goal of “I need to lose 50 pounds” … I started out small…20 pounds was my goal.

As most diets go, this one started out great! By Christmas I had dropped about 10 pounds. And then slowly dropped another 5 … and then another 3 … and then gained, then lost, then gained. For the past month or so I’ve been wavering between 17. 9 and 19.7 pounds shed. I CANNOT hit that damn 20 pound mark.

To top it all off, I’ve gone back to my crap diet. I’m no longer counting points; although, I’m still a lot better about things than I was.

But I have NO motivation. None. Nadda. I want all that junky, carb-loaded, sugary-sweet, tasty good stuff. And I have no will power to not eat it! *sigh* (In an effort for full disclosure, I’m actually munching on potato wedges while typing this up…perhaps the motivation needed for a confession.)

I suppose I should stop moaning and just get up off my butt and get back on the diet. Anyone have any motivation to lend?

I Must Be Crazy

An in-real-life friend and blogger buddie, Goddess, has thrown down the gauntlet. She’s challenged fellow bloggers to join her in “searching for the wagon” – losing some weight.  I’ve decided that I need to do just that and will be joining her. Goddess even set up a new blog for us to complain about track things. I’ll also try to be brave and keep updates going here – but I’ll mostly be tracking over there. Let’s just suffice it to say that I’m starting out at large.

Why crazy, you ask? Because I’ve joined the online version of Weight Watchers at prime foodie time. Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. Not to mention all that Halloween candy that we can’t let the KIDS eat… *sigh* This is going to take a *lot* of will power…I’m totally a meat and potatoes kinda gal. Although, I do really like WW’s zero point soup…

Poor Mike. I hope I don’t get too grumpy  🙂 And I hope he doesn’t mind some of my WW recipes…

Keep your fingers crossed for me! And here’s to hoping that I don’t chew through my desk.
