So, this week I was going to do a photo-mentary of what it actually looks like to eat less than 2000 calories per day.  I was going to be all good and run a calorie deficit all week and exercise daily and start the New Year off right.

Instead, I just kind of continued the Holidays.  On Monday, after two days of doin' it right, I came home from double Zumba and was so hungry that I ate my way through way more food than I should have.  But all the usual tricks, drinking copious amounts of water, waiting 20 minutes to see if satiety set in, etc., did not work.  I was hungry.  The beast demanded to be fed.

WHEE (Weight, Health, Eating and Exercise) is a community support diary for Kossacks who are currently or planning to start losing, gaining or maintaining their weight through diet and exercise or fitness.

On Tuesday I did OK.  On Wednesday, a friend came to town.  I took her out for a giant, delicious Neapolitan pastry at Amelie's French Bakery.  Then we went and had sushi for dinner.  We also bought a quarter-wheel of Brillat-Savarin, some crusty bread, and a bottle of wine to snack on while we watched Tropic Thunder.  It was a diet debacle.

The rest of the week was OK.  I got eight punches in my Zumba card between Jan. 2 and today.  I ended posting a reasonable calorie deficit five out of the seven days, but my average deficit for the week was only 80 and the scale didn't budge.

Needless to say, if I was the kind to obsess over broken resolutions, or to wait until next year to restart them again, I'd be hosed right about now.

So how are YOUR New Years' Resolutions going?  Lay it on me.  I'm making my new, incremental resolution to do better this week in 3...2...1...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
