First Post of 2012

I've been so busy writing for other people that my blog has lain desolate... "bloggi sheli lo notarti..."
Anyway, I know you've all been wondering what happened with my diet.

This is kind of sad. No, actually, it's very sad.

I lost 8 kilograms, and then I got stressed, loosened up a bit, and it ALL CAME BACK. ALL of it!
I weigh what I did when I went to Ephraim's birthday party 15 months ago, and looked at those pictures with shock and horror.

I will say that I *think* that I managed to gain some muscle in there, because my clothes still fit better than they did then, and my face doesn't look as puffy (at least to me). So let's say it's like I only gained back 6 of the 8 kilos. It's still awful, miserable. All that progress gone.

So now, I'm on a new plan. I bought this device called a Fitbit, and it monitors how many steps I take, how many flights of stairs I climb, and how much I sleep. On its online dashboard, there's a place to enter all my food and it tracks how many calories I'm allowed. Of course, this all happens right before Pesach... so it's going to be a little touch-and-go for those 8-10 days, but I'm going to try to do my best.

I have so many post ideas percolating in my head, but no time to write. I'm going to try to get back to actually blogging for myself, though. I need it.
