Fear and loathing in blogdom…

My first post….
I’m loathe to try to blog. I’ve never considered myself to be much of a writer. However, for the past few years I’ve been quite the dieter! I’ve tried a lot of diet plans. Some worked for me and some did not. Everyone is different so I feel that it is important for me to share some honest views of the plans that I’m featuring on this site.

I’ve learned a lot about myself through dieting. The most distressing thing I’ve learned is that I require a rigid plan that does not allow me to improvise. I have very little ability when it comes to self restraint! If I am on a rigid plan, I can follow it to the letter but if I’m allowed the slightest bit of flexibility, it turns into a huge bungee jump! My bungee doesn’t spring me back, unfortunately. It keeps stretching till I fall splat on my face!

The other distressing thing I’ve learned is that I am a stress eater. I want to be a laid-back person. I really do! But, the sad truth is that I am pretty high-strung. I’m a sales rep and drive all the time. I hate driving! Driving in the Northeast requires a lot of defense and a lot of offense! The weather is also pretty unpredictable. I find that when I’m in a traffic jam or driving in treacherous weather, I start eating mindlessly. I’ll suddenly look down and realize that I just ate a huge bag of chips or m&m’s and didn’t even taste it!

I’ll be addressing these and other issues as I go along. I’d also love to hear others’ stories and suggestions. Stick around!
