diet revelations, volume 1

okay kids, bear with me. i know diet talk may not be too exciting but my OCD has made all this calorie-counting priority number one! heh. and i wonder how jack got his OCD tendencies. i'm sure the list of diet discoveries will grow, but what i've learned so far:

1) Splenda tastes like ASS. seriously, "made from sugar, so it tastes like sugar"??? bullshit. it tastes like sugar if sugar had a creepy chemical aftertaste that makes you want to suck on a lemon to get rid of it. i'll take my 16 calorie teaspoon of real sugar, thank you.

2) a dollop of half-and-half in my coffee tastes a BILLION times better than a dollop of skim milk. *sniff* oh, full-fat dairy, how i'll miss you...

3) i always thought eating Kashi cereal would be like eating rocks and sticks. if you eat the raisin variety it's not too bad--like eating twigs and, uhh, raisins. and boy does that fiber expand in your gut!

4) Boca lasagna is awesome. i'm not a vegetarian, but i am a pasta addict. this shit ROCKS.

5) starting your period while on a diet sucks beyond belief. the bloating fucks with you because you're not sure if it's really bloat or belly blubber! bah. and of course, there's the evil chocolate craving. i will NOT be tempted!!!

i'm wondering if i should get a scale. i'm afraid of the obsessive-compulsive weighing that will surely take place! i think that just trying on my old jeans over and over until they fit will be good enough. we'll see.

wow, you ARE disciplined! i'm just kind of doing the cut-out-crap, eat balanced meals, and stop eating by 8pm diet. not very structured, but it seems to be working. in the past several weeks i've lost at least 3 pounds...my goal is 15 by my birthday in may, which seems reasonable. i figger by then i'll be able to fit into my old clothes, and if i need to lose another 5 i can do that slowly because it won't make all that much of a difference clothes-fitting-wise.

i wish i could do it the way you are! but i know myself, and it takes drastic measures to make me stick with something i really don't want to do. namely, eat all the junk i want! i'm really hoping that once i get back into my old clothes i won't have to be such a calorie-nazi, though i'm afraid hitting 35 may have permanently altered my metabolism. for the worse, of course! bah.
