Being a knitter doesn't help. It's not exactly an active hobby (though my fingers are seriously svelt!). Even if I wasn't a knitter, I've never been overly active. My eating habits are probably my biggest enemy. If it's deep-fried or covered in high-fructose corn syrup (or both) it's my best friend.
Last weekend, I hit a very unhappy milestone. I stepped on the scale while up at Mom's. (I don't have one here - or a full length mirror....), looked down at those evil red numbers, staring back at me - 210....
Seriously?!? How in the heck did I get to 210 lbs? I was a skinny kid. I was a slim teenager! Even my early 20s weren't too bad. It did start to slide a little when I met Dave (coincidentally when I also started driving and working at a desk full-time).
And maybe I should take a look up at that second paragraph.... Okay, okay, so I know how I got here.
Anyway, this week, I'd really started focusing my what I was eating. Not dieting. Tell me I absolutely can't have something and I want it more - but making better choices (like a homemade salad with roast chicken instead of a pile of deep fried lemon chicken and white rice smothered in soy sauce). I was doing okay, but it was just a few days.
And then along comes Dee from Tangled up in Sticks and String, and she writes this perfect post! Naturally, we got to talking, and Dee suggested a little blog-a-long. Would you like to join us? It's not just about weight loss - it's about any goal you may have - and all of us lending support and providing a little motivation. All the details are on her blog.
