As I mentioned in my Liebster Blog Award acceptance post, Oh, I Think They Like Me!, a few years ago I unsuccessfully tried to become a vegetarian. I wrote a post for Happy Cow entitled Taming The T-Rex chronicling my efforts. Three years later, I have since done a 270 degree turn. It’s not quite a 360, because I rarely eat pork or beef.
Like so many other people, my 2012 began with a resolution to lose weight and to exercise. Prior to my surgery, I was working out for an hour every day plus I was doing Weight Watchers. That was 6 months ago.
A lot can happen in 6 months – a lot. So much that your legs can begin to resemble Tootsie Rolls, and that’s when it
happened. The day I woke up fat.
So rather than finish what I started, there comes a time in a person’s life when you just gotta do what you have to do and I decided to eat the remainder of the potato chips, get my fill of French fries, I don’t even like dessert, but I’m quite sure I ate a couple of cookies. Then the next day, I started the Atkins diet.
That was 5 weeks ago. I am very excited to say that I have lost 10 pounds; 23 more to go.
This is it. The last diet for me. I have no doubt it will be difficult. I may stumble and possibly fall, but I’ll never stop trying.
I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!)
