Another Resolution

Ya know, this is so hard. When I started this blog, I thought it would be so easy. And when I got a lap band, I thought it would be so easy. It's been my life struggle, so how can anything make it easy?
My big downfall is grazing. You know, at parties where all this gorgeous delicious and fattening food is laid out so beautifully. One little taste of this, and one little taste of that. And three tastes of this, and 5 tastes of that. Oh my. And what do you get? A buildup of fat on your thighs and stomach. And I hate myself. That is the thing I need to overcome. Grazing and hating myself.

So, on to another year and my resolutions to lose these ten pounds AGAIN, so I can go on and lose some more. I am going to walk on nice days and dance on rainy days. I will walk in almost any temperature, but when it rains, I really hate my glasses getting wet and my clothes soaked. And dancing is more fun!

I went to Costco the other day and stocked up on vitamins and fiber and vitamin D, and I bought the ACAI 10 day cleanse. There has been so much hype over that stuff, what the heck, I thought I'd give it a try.

So, I'm going to try to post to this every day, even if there is nothing positive to write about.
Keep me accountable. Alot of resolutions here. Phew.

Me bad

I know I have been remiss in posting here, and that is bad. For me. This was supposed to be a way for me to keep on track!! Be accountable to myself. Well, I've been fiddle farting around and not being very serious, and as a result, the scales are going in the wrong direction. I was feeling pretty cocky after several desserts on Thanksgiving resulted in no change, but it takes awhile for all those calories to settle in. Sigh.
The good news is, while trying on clothes the other day, NOTHING FIT. Not because they were too tight, they were way too BIG. This is what is called a non scale victory. My mother used to say my load has shifted! How true. I've never worked so hard trying on clothes. And wouldn't it be a day when no clerk came by every few minutes asking if I needed any other sizes. Oh, well, it was enough for me to know something is going right.

So, once again we start anew. Dieting IS alot of work and takes alot of effort to keep on track.
