I am so bad......at losing weight -- OK, this is pitiful--that a fond memory in my past is when I was fresh home from Africa, had giardia, and managed to lose 9 lbs in one month. Now, granted, I did not have a rip-roaring case of it. Mostly I was just nauseated and had no appetite and threw up once a week or so. Nothing really awful. But that was the easiest weight loss I'd ever had.
I am on a quest at the moment to lose 9 whole pounds. I actually want to lose 16 but I'm starting moderate. I began 7 weeks ago and since then have actually managed to lose 4. This is about as good as I ever do with weight loss, barring the occasional Africa-induced bout of giardia. So I am pretty pleased with myself at this moment.
But I am afraid my self-control will slip and so that is why I have been mulling over taking Mel up on her challenge Join The Diet Naked Team. I think if I did, I'd get much more serious about this and feel more accountable in those moments when (just for an example) I have just eaten 4 chocolate chip cookies in a row and am contemplating a 5th. (Not that I've ever actually had a moment like that..weak smile...)
I don't know if I can bear to be that 'out-there'. But, boy am I tempted... I'd really love to be down to a healthier weight by next summer, when I turn 40. So I'm wondering, is anyone else thinking of taking Mel up on her challenge?
