i am a quitter!

that's right, good people. i am a quitter. and it feels damned good. i have just officially quit weight watchers (although i still have log-in privileges until the end of the month). here's what i've been eating everyday:

breakfast -
1/2 cup kashi raisin crunch cereal with 1/2 cup lowfat soymilk
1/2 cup plain oatmeal with tbsp honey and cinnamon

lunch -
large spinach salad with mostly veggies plus one protein source (broiled fish, tuna, veggie burger, etc), no dressing
1 lowfat yogurt
1 piece of fruit

midday snack -
fiber one bar
1 piece of fruit
or carrot sticks

evening -
salad for dinner or other healthy option

evening snack -
air popped popcorn without butter
weight watchers english toffee ice cream bar

and that is it. that is all i eat. and then i weekends i splurge on things like brunch or maybe a slice of pizza or maybe some cake or maybe a real dinner at a restaurant. and i have been doing this since january 5th. and do you know where it's gotten me? i have been able to keep off a grand total of 3 pounds. 3 measely pounds!

and it occurred to me dear blog readers that maybe i should just go back to eating my normal healthy diet and possibly gain back these 3 pounds in exchange for living like a real person again.

so this weekend in celebration of the bolshevik's birthday i have eaten the following very very bad things:
1. fondue
2. fish and chips
3. pizza
4. half a milkshake
5. apple and cinnamon pancakes
6. lots o' booze

and you know what? it felt damned good.

Years ago I failed at Weight Watchers. Might I recommend a site called, Odd name, but a great site and it's free! It offers a nutrition tracker and fitness tracker along with plenty of other resources and teams to help you along. I'd never done anything like this site before, but when something's free it doesn't hurt to try. And, I was successful with the weight loss on this site.

Good luck to you.
