The Goal

As I said in my last blog (not the blank one caused by a fingernail!), my nephew is getting married in November and I have a goal.

There is a particular dress that I want to wear to the wedding and I don't fit into it right now. Bummer!

I weighed 115 in High School and I weigh 146 today. It snuck up on me gradually and until I began not being able to get into some of my clothes, I didn't think much about it. I do a good job a camouflaging my middle aged tummy with my choice of clothes.

I cannot diet. As soon as I say the word "diet", I immediately want to eat everything that isn't nailed down. I know it's all in my head but it is soon all on my waist.

So this time, I am just concentrating on portions and stopping eating when I am satisfied not full. To date, if something tastes good, it's hard to no eat it all.

We'll see how this works. Today was my first day and so far so good.

If I get into the dress, I will be sure to post a photo. If I don't get into the dress, I will post a photo of someone else!

Wish me luck.


  1. You can do it! I'm with you on the diet. It's more about portion control for me. I just need to recognize the signs of being full. I can't wait until I see your picture of YOU in the dress.

  2. Good luck -- I want to see that photo! (of you, not someone else!)
