About a year and a half ago, I lost 31 pounds, going from 198 to 167. I never quite made my goal of 159, but I was happy with myself. In the last couple months, I've gained back 5 lbs. So I am here to get back on the wagon to lose that 5 lbs, plus another 5 to get me that much closer to my original goal. I was thinking of doing a weight loss diary on here, but when I thought of some of the things I still eat while watching my weight, you would all be appalled, lol.

Which got me thinking, what do you eat that you shouldn't while dieting?

A few of mine are:

44oz fountain Mountain Dews (I only drink one now, it used to be 2-3 a day. Yes, I know its horrible for me, but a I will never give it up.)

I also concentrate on lowering fat, so I actually eat a lot of pasta and rice while dieting, but it works for me.

What about you, ladies?

Only at work I also drink coffee. A tiny cup, but it's full if sugar free chocolate creamer and two sweet-n-low packets.

I eat whatever I want, but use portion control. I work in a cookie shop a few days a week, so I do have a few cookies through the week. But I work out. I've been doing Pilates and the 30 Day Shred.

I'm not a wine drinker, but I've heard it has health benefits.

Well I guess that is a good thing LOL.  My hubby came home randomly for a few min yesterday and my kids are driving me nuts. I see lots of wine in my future for how my kids are acting.

I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three.

Ooh... I love cookies. There is an unopened bag of Chips Deluxe in the cabinet right now. As long as it stays unopened, I am safe, lol. Portion control is definitely a rule to live by. I used to eat whole bags of stuff, but now I put everything in a dish and it has helped a lot.

I need to do that right before AF arrives. I could eat a whole bag of Oreos in that case, lol.
