As many of you know, I’ve struggled with my weight for a really long time, most of my adult life to be exact. A few months ago, I decided to tackle my weight issues head on and start dieting and exercising.
It hasn’t been going so well, as I’m sure many of you have noticed. I want to say I’m committed to losing weight, but if I was, I wouldn’t be writing this while sucking down my second cup of coffee for the day, right before I go put my left over lasagna in the microwave for lunch today.
And it’s not fair to my readers when I say I’m going to do something and then continuously blow it off to the point where they don’t even care anymore.
So here’s how this is going to work from now on. I’m going to try to be good. I can’t (or won’t) make any promises I don’t intend to keep, so please keep that in mind when you come to read my weight loss posts. They may or may not be pretty.
As a caveat to that decision though, I’m going to be completely honest with everyone on this site, starting tomorrow, about what the numbers look like. I would start today, but as I’ve already eaten, it wouldn’t be an accurate representation of where I’m actually at. Then once a week I will be posting exactly what the numbers are, no fudging allowed. I’m doing this because it seems peer pressure, or the assumption of peer pressure, seems to work best for me in my quest to lose weight. And to be honest, I kind of want the numbers to come down, but I have to know what the numbers are in order to know if I’m going up or down, and if you think I haven’t been honest with you when it comes to dieting, you have no idea how dishonest I’ve been with myself when it comes to dieting. I keep telling myself that the numbers don’t matter, but we all know that’s a bunch of horse manure.
So I’m (sort of) back on track. Check back tomorrow to find out just how well that works.
