Little FAT Me

I work full time and I barely have time to breathe. In 2005 hurricane Katrina rearranged my life, since then I have gained roughly 80-90 pounds. I believe that it started in depression and became an addiction. I have started and failed many diets and then decided that MAYBE if I combine diet and exercise with blogging and shopping I might be able to find success. This is the story of 2010 and my struggle to rise above addiction, pain, depression and fat.

The road to MY PERSONAL goal BMI/weight!

"If you bite it, write it."

I cannot tell you to do something. I cannot say, "Look at me, I am an example of blah-blah working." All I can do is stress this one point: TRACKING can make or break you! Keeping an honest and clear record of your food intake does several things. It provides you a way to reflect on your week. If you have gained it helps to look at possible reasons why; if you have lost it is nice to be able to reference what you did right! Taking the time to write down your food s help you to realize what you are putting into your body. Tracking promotes thoughtful awareness as apposed to mindless consuming. I pay more attention to actual portion sizes. These are only a fraction of reasons it's a god idea to track.
Last week was a hard week. I felt I had failed. I felt I had eaten out to often, over my points. I felt defeated but I would not give up tracking. I lost .9 of a pound. That is because even though I was not the picture of WW perfection I was aware! Had I not even held myself accountable I would surely have gained and that could have very well pushed me way off track!
