I need YOU!

To help hold me accountable.
Here's the deal, folks.  I weighed this morning.  It wasn't pretty.  It was downright disgusting.  Clearly, I can't do this on my own.  I need you guys to help keep me accountable.  I need you to tell me not to cheat, that it's worth it to stick it out, that I CAN DO THIS.

Cuz, guys.  I'm not doing it.  I'm failing, miserably.  I weighed in at 146.2 this morning.  Bleh.  Now,  I know part of the weight gain is water retention because my time of the month is coming.  But not all of it. Not even close.

So.  Today I start (DON'T LAUGH!!!!!) the 17 Day Diet.  Again.  Again.  Again.  AGAIN!  I don't know if I'll follow it 100% strictly because quite honestly I'm not prepared. I don't have the groceries I need.  I don't feel mentally ready.  But something has to change, and it's starting today.

I ate 2 eggs for breakfast, and I boiled a whole bunch more.  I don't have any salad.  But my plan is to eat low/no carb and low fat, and high lean protein and veggies.  So even if I have to eat only egg whites today, I will do this.

Realistically speaking, this is the worst time possible to try to start the diet again.  I have PMS.  PMS + Me = Need for insane amount of chocolate and salty food.  And that's absolutely not allowed on the diet.  I'm also stressed; just busy in general.  Stress + Me = Need for insane amount of chocolate.  Again, not allowed on the diet.

But here goes.  I have to do something.  I don't want to get 3 months down the road and be ballooned back up to 150+ just because I couldn't/wouldn't take control of my eating.  So today it stops.

But I need your help.  I can't do it on my own.  I need to be held accountable.  So my goal is to blog daily.  I will only weigh once a week, but I want/need to blog to keep myself accountable to you guys and to myself.

So here we go.  Lord help us all. =)


  1. That was what got me to stick to this. I know everyday that I have to write an entry (well, I make myself) and I don't want to write that I am failing. There are days that I have to but that gets me revved up again. You can SOOOO do this!!! My friend says "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!"

  2. I had a friend once say that I don't need to eat that piece of cake. I already know what it tastes like and it's not worth it. She's right. You already know the taste of those foods. How about a taste of skinny? like that last commenter.

    You can do it.
