well, my resolution has not been going well. but i am trying.
still not taking the oil very regularly, though when i do i think it helps - especially in structuring my day around bits of time i won't eat, which tend to leak in both directions. i also generally think getting extra fat is good for me, so i will probably stick with the oil-drinking to some extent in the long run.
have been doing a pretty good job on the rest - trying to eat healthier and trying to avoid eating when bored/stressed. i have a lot of new "tricks," like if i want to watch a movie at night (and want to snack) i have popcorn with parmesan - tons of flavor and crunch and it takes ages to eat. and i am really trying to buy the good food that i really want, rather than the crappy food i feel i can afford - i have been paying attention to the cheese i eat, for example, and on weeks that i buy a single really nice hunk of cheese i spend less money and eat far less cheese than the weeks that i buy cheese i don't really want but that is more reasonably priced. i've been working on two hectos of a really nice, really strong goat cheese for about 10 days now - i have a bit of it every day with some dried figs for dessert. and it's amazing. and then i don't mindlessly eat a hecto of crappy blue cheese per day while reading the paper.
anyway. this week i am not traveling anywhere and i am working mostly at home, alone - so i'm going to try to down the oil every day, twice a day, and see if it does any good. seriously. i am going to do this. monday to friday. i can do this. this is not that hard. i can do it!
down two more pounds to 155. which is good. old pants are, for the most part, buttonable, but do not yet fit. but they button! yeah!
