So maybe this will work. I don't know if I'm ready to track every calorie on this site, although I do track them in my trusty diet notebook - which is also where I usually write all of my positive and negative (more negative, I admit) thoughts on this whole losing-weight deal. It's not easy. And I've gotten a little obsessed with my weight...but what am I saying? I can remember how much I weighed at almost every point in my semi-adult life, starting when I was about 14 (145, if you were wondering). And then 180 by the end of high school, then lost 35 to get down to 145 after college, 155 when I got pregant, 230 (yeah that's right) at the height of my pregnancy...and so on.
So now it's time to lose weight. I weigh 183 pounds, more or less (the regular weigh-in at my mom's house is tomorrow, so I'm hoping against hope that it's no more than that, because the number on the scale does affect me too much), and my goal is 150 pounds. The time is now, as I rush headlong toward my 40th birthday. Ugh.
