A little while ago, I realized that the reason I have trouble staying on the South Beach Diet that worked so well several years ago was that when I was on it before, I was working in an office; now I work from home where the food possibilities are endless.

When I had to commute to work, I brought my lunch and snacks and stuck to them. Now that my office is in my house, all I have to do is venture into the kitchen to see what there is. My willpower is not so good at times.

What options do I have now? Well, a friend of mine is going to try a specific diet where you eat "their" food during the day but eat a sensible dinner. I can handle that. In fact, I'm going to give it a whirl. I'll try it for a while and see how it goes, and then I'll tell you what it is.

Fingers crossed that it works!

Okay, so I have been in school for a year, and I have gained a lot of weight. I am embarrassed and ashamed, but I am at the point to do something about it once and for all.

I am going to try a new program (to me) and will post how things go.
