You Know You're Blowing Your Diet When…

  • You fabricate reasons for why you shouldn’t check your weight.
  • You are gaining weight at approximately the rate you should be losing it.
  • You start thinking of the diet as an enemy, and have an eating binge simply to spite that enemy.
  • You have an ongoing weekly weight-loss sweepstakes, and miss the goal weight by five pounds.

Clearly, last week was a massive failure. I’ve got all kinds of reasons why I gained weight instead of losing it — work stress, inability to train because I was helping at Boy Scout camp, uniformly fattening food at said camp — but none of them are valid. First comment w/ email address gets a $100 amazon.com gift certificate, and the Sweepstakes jackpot gets reset to $25. Pffffff.

Today’s Weight: 177.4. And it’s raining so hard I couldn’t bike to work today. Nice.
