I'm Really Trying

This Sunday I've made a resolution: no snacking after dinner. I've been floating around 215 lbs. for about 3-6 months. I'm working out, but my stomach has been packing in the fat and I'm tired of it. I'm not going to starve myself, but I have to cut down on something. For a while it's been easy to justify munching on crap late at night, but no more!

Well, at least for 3 days now. It really sucks - every so often I walk by the kitchen and I think, "c'mon, just grab one chip - it won't hurt." But I know myself - chips are very dangerous to me. I'll just shove 'em all in :). I'm doing good so far...but the real key is to feel thinner. This may sound weird, but I don't really care what my weight is. What's more important is that I'm in good shape and I'm eating well. I'm getting better on the 2nd part. Historically I've been a terrible eater and over the last 10 years I've made lots of progress to eat more fruits and vegetables (although I'm still not as good at that as I should be). I just need to get leaner. I don't want to get the way I was when I was 24, which was 164 lbs. That was the lowest I was ever at (of course, being depressed, biking 40 miles a day 4 days a week in the hot Wisconsin summer sun and not eating a lot will do that to ya) and while I felt very in shape, I wasn't eating well and I wasn't healthy. Ideally I'd like to get down to 195 but if I can slim down the stomach I'll be really happy.
