Recently I started on a diet, correction I adjusted my diet. I have reduced the amount of soda I drink and when I do it is mostly diet soda.

Along with that I have reduce my amount if candy and snacks. I might have a candy bar once a week and spread a bag of chips over a week or two.

Finally I have just tried to eat less and drink more water. Take my time eating, smaller servings and less second servings.

So far I have lost 12 pounds since I started and hope to lose 20 more by next February. Sometimes I go up but usually make up for it in the following week which is fine. You have to remember that you're human and you will have bad days.

I know to some this doesn't seem much like a 'diet' but from everything I have read this is all you have to do and it is working. Losing weight is about eating smarter, not denial.

Also from what I read you can increase your odds of success by telling people what you’re doing and explaining it. When you tell others you are subconsciously holding yourself to them, so here I am holding myself to my reader(s) and soon to my friends on Facebook. I will try to give updates in future posts and status updates.

Current Weight: 231

Some might be wondering why I am dieting and I have three reasons.

1) Health: I am overweight and borderline close to obese along with family history diabetes.

2) Support: The Spousal Equivalent is on Weight Watchers. Being on a diet is easier when everyone you live with is, even if they are different diets.

3) Vanity: I want to look better, fit in my clothes better and have more options for buying new cloths.

Transmission Out!
