Was successful on Tuesday, not so much yesterday. We had friends over for dinner last night and I had two glasses of wine. I don't drink much at all, so those two glasses kind of loosened me up to the point where I reasoned that having a second helping and dessert was much healthier, mentally, than ...

LOL, oolala!

You're right about the media diet. I also need a diet diet. As soon as I start reading about or thinking about dieting, I'm in danger of backsliding. It's like an addiction.

How kind you are, Mimi. Thanks. :)

I just had a bowl of Cheerios and a cup of tea for breakfast and was shocked when I realized that I wouldn't be eating again until lunch time. That's all the proof I need that I've been eating way too much.

I'm reading this and feeling sad that I let it all get away from me. So many things have happened since I last posted in this journal. So much has changed. I have had major life changes and challenges.

Yet here I am, still trying to learn one of life's most basic skills - how to eat.

Hello again...

Hi, everyone. I haven't been around in quite a while. I have been off dieting. :? I think I've finally had enough.

I don't know if I have very much to add to the conversation right now, but I've been lurking and thought it would be a good idea to say hi.

So, "hi." :)

This makes it sound like all overweight people are sinful gluttons. It's not "bad eating behavior" that's the problem. It's bad food.
