I think the harder I try, the worse off I am.  I have been taking on this effort literally minute by minute, making choices to eat, or not eat, one item at a time.  And when I look at the items I have avoided, I am pretty proud of myself. I skipped the mediocre buffet lunch.  I did not have the cookie.  I am drinking the shakes instead of a meal.  I am taking my vitamins.  I am walking.  This is great!  Something should be happening!?!

The scale has not moved.  Not one ounce.  Not even a fraction of an ounce.

So then I start thinking about the things I did eat.  The glass of wine I had at the party. The dessert I had as a reward for not eating the bread or potatoes.  And even though I made better choices, they are not enough.

I am going to have to make the best choice, every time.

I will say it again.
