So, I wanted chips last night real bad... And unfortunately, there are some in the house. Picked up the bag, and then yelled, "No." (I was home alone, or my husband would have wondered what was going on in the kitchen.) Allowed myself a square of dark chocolate to try to quiet the cravings monster. It worked. No chips for me.
Woke up this a.m. another pound down on the scale. Down 7 now.…

Not a startling number, but I'm feeling great about it. It's nice to see ever smaller numbers on the scale, and to feel energized by the process again.
The key, finally, was to find a way to eat that didn't require me to obsessively track every bite. I know that works, and it works for some people, but for me, it was just that much more time at the computer, that much more time working instead of doing something away from the computer.
The answer for me has been: Weight Watchers Simply Filling plan. The only thing I have to measure is 'extras' -- I have a list of 'eat as much as you need' foods, and that's it. Boom. Finally. A way that works.

Since my new year didn't start out so well, I'm going to restart my resolutions with the Lunar New year. So 恭喜发财 and here we go.
I have to give a couple presentations at the end of March, so that is my goal--ten pounds by then. 15 would be better.... but enough of me at this weight. SICK of it.
- less alcohol, esp. beer (I don't drink much beer, but still...)
- eat at home more
- more vegetables, always more vegetables
- think positive
- sleep more
Sounds so simple. Time to make it work.

I always look forward to a new year--new start, new possibilities. I have loads of resolutions, some just fun (play my violin more, write for fun more), some serious (lose weight, exercise). I'm trying to find some creative resolutions as well--I like one I read recently where you put the same amount of money in a jar as it is the week (week 1, $1, week 10, 10$, etc.) At the end of the year, you'll have 1400 in the jar. I could do something fun with 1400. I also want to visit at least one new country in 2014. I managed to do that the past two years, and I'd like to keep it up. But hmmm, where?
Other fun resolution ideas?

The scene: last night, getting ready to go to a party
The problem: The one dress I have that still fits has a stain on the front I hadn't noticed. What to wear?
The action: Going through dozens of outfits, either they don't fit, look awful, aren't dressy enough
Solution: Lose some weight so I can wear the other dresses and clothes
Solution 2: Get rid of clothes that probably will never fit me again, and if they do, they'll be totally out of style!
