Can you break a New Year's resolution when you haven't even begun it yet?

One of the promises I made to myself starting off this year was to start logging meals -- not only to see where maybe extra calories are hiding out, but to see if at times I'm not getting enough, especially since I've had a plateau from hell.

Do you think I've done it?  Guess.  o_O

WTH?  I think part of it is, unless it's a VERY basic food item, it can be hard to know how to log it.  Ah, but I can't do that.  I can't say how "hard" it is to do and then not do it when I KNOW it is something I will have to do to make sure I'm on track.

And I didn't do any exercise last week.  I spent the entire weekend looking for new glasses, and it caught me behind on my homework.  I was doing each day's homework the night before until the wee hours, and barely getting it done.  I just can't start off this semester this way, barely hanging on by the skin of my teeth.

Just shoot me now.


  1. I have never succeeded in writing down what I ate. Maybe for a day or two but it got tedious. Even the on-line ones didn't help. It isn't for everyone, so as long as you are still losing, why write it down. I want to be able to think about what I am about to put in my mouth. Maybe we need to put little bar codes on everything we eat and then little scanners in our mouth to record.

    Good luck with all your homework and success at school.

  2. The problem is, I haven't lost for quite some time. I've been on a plateau from hell. :( I have to do something different for a while, but I have yet to figure out what differences need to be made. So many things I've done haven't worked.
