Well, as long as I am here I suppose that I could check in with my progress. Geez. It seems so lackluster and the complete opposite of changing-the-world, that I almost wonder what the point is. Well, I just completed week 3 of my new plan and I have to say that it is going swimmingly. The first two weeks were gangbusters - I found that abstaining from things wasn't too hard and when I had those things on my allotted time I didn't feel guilty. It has felt so good to stay on track with it. I finally got to weigh myself, and I was 181. That is about 2 pounds less than usual, which is great.

So now I am on a no-scale diet, at least for a few weeks. Who was I kidding? I can tell whether I am doing things right, and whether my body is changing, without that stupid number.

Oh, and for those of you who were wondering if my eldest daughter succeeded in getting me to work out a couple of weeks ago - she did. There was no way I could not work out when she was being so positive and happy and really trying to help me. I can turn down flat someone who is trying to push me into it by guilt, or by aggressive behavior, but how could I disappoint someone who was trying to succeed at doing what I had asked her? She is a very powerful weapon that someone could use against me - I hope she doesn't fall into the wrong hands.
