I know this isn't a diet blog but I have not posted anything in months and today I thought I would start putting down in words what I think about dieting.
In a word it "sucks". But I have to start thinking of it as not ugh a diet but as a new way of thinking about food.
Wish me luck on that comment.
I started watching what I was putting into my pie hole the week after Christmas and it was not pretty. Chocolate, cookies, chocolate, cake, chocolate... the list goes on. So I got rid of the cookies, tossed out the cake and cut the chocolate back to two small bite size pieces a day (baby steps). Actually I will never stop eating chocolate, moderation is the key, so they tell me.
I am not going to do any of the traditional or non traditional diets like Weight Watchers or Quick Weight Loss both of which I have tried and been successful at. I just didn't keep it off.
I started writing down everything I eat and am drinking at least 32oz of water.
I have lost a pound and a half in 3 days. My goal is to lose 15 to 20 pounds.
More later on the ups and downs of trying to lose weight after the age of fifty.
