I started in on Operation: Stop Being Such A Fatty (Oh, And Eat Healthier Too) two weeks ago yesterday. Thus far I've lost 4 pounds. I'm trying not to get obsessive about weighing myself, or about anything really - I've been down that sort of road before, and eventually it just gets to be too much work and I eat half a cake to relieve the pressure. Because cakes are wonderful stress-busters, didn't you know? I also have to keep in mind that this isn't just about losing weight. It's about eating healthfully and feeding my body what it needs rather than just what I want.
A neat way to look at weight stuff is in sticks of butter. Four sticks equals a pound, so I am now 16 sticks of butter lighter. And whereas 4 pounds doesn't seem like that much, 16 sticks is a damn lot of butter.
Anyway, I just thought I'd post a little progress report.
