Food Journal and Fall Mums

No one wants to hear from a smug successful dieter, but I couldn't do it without my trusty food journal. I started this last March, and write down everything I eat every day. I am sorry to tell you that this is not the first time I have lost weight this way, but I hope it will be the last! I needed a bound journal, nothing like a steno book in which you can easily rip a page out of if you have a bad day. I have actually been at this for seven years - no, this is not a typo, SEVEN YEARS. I needed to change my habits slowly and permanently. Can you imagine a magazine article titled: "How I lost 42 pounds in 7 years"? I'm guessing no one would read it. How about "How I lost 17 pounds in six months?" Nope, not a best seller, but it has worked for me. LOL
I hate to see the end of summer, but the fall flowers are looking good!

Have you visited Jodie at www.vintagericrac.blogspot.com? She is the selvedge queen, so I was cutting off some selvedges to send her. Hallie Cat could not have been more interested in this project. Those long thin selvedges were very entertaining!

I lost weight that way too once! It's really a very good way to make you very conscious of what you eat. LOL! Something about seeing things in writing....
How nice of you to send selvedges :-) She's almost done! I'm waiting very impatiently for that BIG selvedge project to be done and up on her blog. LOL!

Congratulations on losing weight, Diana. It doesn't matter that you did it slowly. In fact, that is probably the best way to do it as you are more likely to keep it off that way.

The flowers are beautiful in your photo! :D

LOL - My little kitten is thrilled with them too.

Congratulations on sticking to a food journal. You have given me an idea of what to write in the new journal cover I am painting.
Your cat is a great helper.
