the tip of the fatberg

I have started too many diets in my 29 years. Despite my best efforts to not relive those failures, they are there. Staring at me as I attempt, yet again to change my life.

I lost five pounds this past week. It's great. I am happy with the results But. I've lost five pounds before. Heck, I've just recently lost five pounds. And then gained five pounds. So, while loosing five pounds is great, it is not the end. This is just the beginning.

I ask myself, "will this really be it?" Will this be the time when my life really changes? For forever?

Oh, I so desperately hope it is. I know better than to even call this a diet. Diets don't work because diets begin and end. I don't want to ever quit eating this way. Healthy. Foods that are good for you. This is a lifestyle change; I get that. I do.

Don't you just hate it when people say "Oh, it's a lifestyle change. You can't go on fad diets...blah blah blah."

It's like - you don't think I've heard this forty billion times??? You don't think every time I "diet" I am trying to change my lifestyle?? lol...

Seriously...you GO girl! You'll be my inspiration. Not gonna lie, I am a little sad that you're anonymous. But I still love you.

Man, I know exactly what you mean!!! The reason why I started my "diet" on Valentine's Day this year is so that I was already all the way "in", you know? It doesn't make a whole lot of since to skip out on chocolate for Valentine's Day, and then start cheating 2 days later. Then I got past a few birthdays. Now I can't think about "cheating" for a Tuesday because, heck, I already made it through a holiday! Good luck. You can do it :-)
