I want to lose ten ... Read more

Dieting and counting calories doesn't work for me :(
This old recurring motif...
I'm about 136 pounds right now. I've been in the mid 30s for nearly half a year. I honestly don't know what to do, dieting and counting calories does not work for me, I can't do it and I'm worried that I'll never... Read more
The problem with sparkpeople...
Everytime I've lost weight it's been because I wasn't trying. When I use the tracker I freak out and start over eating. I don' understand. I weigh about 135 pounds right now, only 15 pounds to go til my target weight, but at the rate I'm going i... Read more

On the bright side, I haven't felt like eating... Read more

Letter to myself
I know how you're feeling. You're completely exhausted right now and you feel so overwhelmed that you just want to give in and never have to think about loosing weight again. You want to be able to eat what you like and not fee... Read more
Well that was a failure
So much for continuous blogging.
Back up to 152. I really don't know how to do this properly. Or do this at all. I can never sustain momentum for more than a day, I just eat.
Alright, back to the small things. My problem areas are
