My Waist is Wasting Away

My name is Jennifer, and I'm a fat girl. I wasn't always this way...when I was a teenager, even until I was about 23...then, one day, I looked in the mirror and there was a fat girl staring back at me, wearing my favorite shirt and stretching it out.

I'm 35 now, and I've been on and off diets for the past 12 years. Sometimes I get skinny, and other times I give up after a week or two. Now, I need to really, seriously lose weight while I'm young enough for the skin to bounce back. Also, I ballroom dance and ride horses, both of which are not as attractive when you're carrying a bunch of jello around with you. So, here I am again, dieting. So, I thought, WTF, why not bring you along with me? Come on, let's lose some weight together! Hence, my weight loss log. I'll share my dieting tips with you as time goes on.

I've actually been dieting for a little over three weeks now, and I've lost about 10 pounds. 10 more, and I can get back on my horse (that's the goal I've set for myself). I generally try to follow the Sonoma Diet, which is the healthiest and easiest to follow of all the ones I've tried. The hardest part is cooking fresh food all the time! It's going ok, though, and my darling husband, Greg, is very supportive.

I'm funny's my take on fad diets:
