Journal of a Dieting Diva

The right way to diet is to change your eating regime.  Eat healthier.  Eat smaller portions.  Count your calories.  It’s always worked for me.

When I count my calories I take the weight off quickly and it stays off as long as I continue to eat right.  The only problem is that I get completely obsessed.  I am an all or nothing person with no happy medium and after about 6 months of dieting I have to get off it because I seem to develop an eating disorder.

The vicious circle continues when I start eating like a pig and gain some weight back.  Then I start over.  Eat healthier.  Eat smaller portions.  Count calories.

So on Wednesday, August 25, 2010 I went back to square one.  I weighed myself and measured every inch of my body so I can get an accurate reading of what must be done.  It wasn’t pretty.

It’s amazing.  I gained 26 pounds since I jumped off the calorie caboose.  Being 5’2″ tall my body does not like extra weight and when I carry something… forget it.  My back hurts, my knees hurt – you name it.

I’ll start out with 1400 calories per day and gradually decrease as needed.  It’s a scientific formula.  In the past year I’ve gone from a size 4 to a 10 and everywhere in between.  I need to get back on the train for my health.
