A New Year, A New Diet!

Ok folks,
This is it! I'm making it public as a last ditch effort to get my fat ass in gear and lose some weight. I know I don't usually use bad language in my blog but this is serious stuff! I am not "overweight" according to all of the charts I've been checking but the pounds have been creeping on since I quit working full time 4 1/2 years ago and it's GOT TO STOP! My sister and I are going to do "before" bikini shots tomorrow! Oh the Horror!!!!!! We thought that if we did pictures, we would be so mortified that we will be forced to be motivated. At least Mandy has an excuse, she just had a baby in July! I on the other hand have a sweet tooth the size of my entire mouth and would much rather have a chocolate chip cookie and a cup of tea than a real meal any day.
Mandy and I joined the Self Diet Club and after I entered all of my info, it said that I could have 2,670 calories a day. At first I thought "Wow, this is going to be easy!" Then I thought "Wait a minute, that doesn't sound right" So when I checked my info., not only did I enter that I wanted to GAIN 1 pound a month, I also entered that I was native american, which I am not. So now whenever I email my sister I sign it "Little Flat Foot" and she signs hers "Big Bottom".
So, I will be keeping you up to date on my "Life Style Change" (because that is what you call a diet these days) as well as my art!

Big Bottom says: he who eats chocolate chip cookies for breakfast will never lose weight. That's why as I was doing it yesterday I told myself to enjoy every bite because January 2nd is the beginning of my diet....uh, lifestyle change.
