More results from my most recent Downright Newsworthy Poll.
Are you trying to lose weight?Pretty bar chart:
10% No, but I should. (Give it a try!)
20% Yes, and it's going swimmingly. (Good for you!)
40% Yes, but it's not going so well. (Aww, don't give up!)
30% No. I'm at a good weight. (Good for you, too!)
0% No. I'm trying to gain weight.
My own diet is going pretty well. So far I've lost eleven pounds. My long-term goal is 140 pounds. Well, actually, my goal is a size 10, which I think will be roughly 140 pounds. After that, I'll think about getting down to a size 8.
On the shorter term, just getting into a size 16 will be a huge accomplishment for me. I was almost into a size 16 when my last diet faltered in 2004.
I really need to pick up some healthy snacks. I've been dieting for three-and-a-half weeks, which means I've been hungry for three-and-a-half weeks. I'm beginning to feel true sympathy for the likes of Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) in Notting Hill, who said she'd been dieting since she was 19, which meant she'd been hungry for a decade. If I'd just get some low-calorie snacks, maybe I wouldn't be so hungry. If you enjoyed this post Subscribe to our feed
