So, I was taking a look back at the year - and what I came to is that I have stayed at the exact same weight as I was at back in June.  I would call it a plateau, but I'll be honest - I've been non-compliant - I've cheated, I haven't exercised enough, I haven't tracked... but the fact is, I've basically maintained for six months.

And while that's not entirely bad, it's time to get back on track.  I've made a decision.

I want to be down 50 pounds total by Valentine's Day. 

It's a love letter to myself.

It's the least I can do.

Of course, it's easy to write that an hour before I leave for what promises to be a decent weigh in.

Ask me again the next time I'm jonesing cake.  Which is constantly.

I need to get a fire in my belly.

And more vegetables.

And less sugar.

And more water.

And more exercise.
