I hate diets.
Mostly because they haven't worked for me yet in life (I wouldn't mind the torture so much if I was actually losing weight, thanks!)
But. Keeping in mind the whole white dress thing, I decided it would be a good year to succeed. Except it wasn't working at all - working out and eating whatever the hell I wanted? What could possibly go wrong here? So my sister, who is big on the whole, keeping up with current events thing (ie too much free time for internet while at work), decided to set some serious goals for herself: lose x pounds by the end of February, or she had to pay for Weight Watchers.
She then preempted herself by downloading an app that tracks your points, just like WW. And damn her, she has lost 7 pounds! (Congrats by the way.) In the face of that kind of success...I caved, and now I am tracking my points like a good little Weight Watcher, except for the self-induced sabotage of wine. If they could just come up with a wine-based diet, I would be totally set. Sigh.
Weight Watchers? While I am not a fan, it is sooooo much better than calorie counting. Light-years better. And I'll tell you a secret...it's even got hubs-elect on board. But shhh on that front :)
