It's been a while.

I completely failed when it came to my new year's resolution to update this blog every two days. Like, super-failed. Failed so spectacularly I thought that maybe I could just never post again and bury the shame of being a failed blogger next to the shame of my continued love of Harry Potter and the fact that I think Hart of Dixie really is a cute show.

I'm going to try again. I'm going to give it the best effort I can and try to update.

First, I'll talk about my other resolution. The one where I promised that I would keep up my weight loss regime and, eventually, be awesome.

Well, so far so good. I am down 73.5 pounds as of last Thursday. I still go to my WW meeting regardless of what I have eaten that week or how much weight I think I've gained on my holiday. I go and I face the facts. This sort of accountability is what keeps me going, even if I have been thinking about eating a massive burrito all day.

I generally make better eating choices. For example, during our three week holiday in America at the beginning of the month, I drank my Dunkin Donuts coffee with skimmed milk and sweetener every single time I had a cup (about a billion times) instead of light cream and heavy sugar. It hurt, but I did it.

However, no diet stopped me from eating this thing:

I did not share. Not even a little bit. I ate the whole thing and it was as big as Mister Man's head.

I have no regrets.

So, this resolution I am sticking to. And, let's be honest, while blogging can be fun, it's certainly not as good for my health as dropping over 70 pounds can be.
