Ohmigod, do I really look like that?

I just saw a picture of myself from the Holiday Party and I can't believe how heavy I look. My hair looked horrible too but I'm kind of used to that. I'm way overdue for a haircut though so I really need to get on it.

It's kind of lowering to think that I've been fooling myself about my weight but I looked way bigger in those pictures that I think I am and I've been down that path before.

I keep telling myself that all I have to do is start working out again the fat will fall off replaced by lovely muscle. This is even probably true. But what if I can't workout for another year? Do I really want to put on another 10 pounds of fat and lose even more muscle?

I also believe that my head injury makes me hungry. This is also probably true but again what if it's like that for another year?

So I'm going to start tracking my food again. That's it. No Weight Watchers, no Jenny Craig, as tempting as it is to join those programs. I know I can lose 10 pounds of fat on them in a month or two. But I need to learn how to eat and manage my weight forever and I worry that going on a real diet will get me back in the yo-yo dieting thing.

Therefore, it's food tracking for me. I'm going to do it just like I did last time, five years ago in Jan. of 2008. I'm going to track it at first and then I'll look for things to improve and start working on improving them one by one.

You heard it here first!
