Thanks, Debbie! I'm in! I wrote my ARC last night and I'm making a copy of it now (slowly as my two year-old is so interested, I don't know that he's seen me sit down with a pen and paper before, lol). I have a lot of good reasons to lose some weight!

I'm a little concerned about my "diet plan". I had a very firm plan that got me to this point -- if I ate two meals a day it was bacon between 11 am and 1 pm and then two burger patties and two slices of cheddar around 6-7 pm, if one meal it was 2 burgers/cheese and 4 slices of bacon around 6-7 pm, period, no deviating. But I hit this wall a while back and I literally cannot eat another cheeseburger.

So, I have been experimenting with slightly different ways of eating. And it's different enough that I don't have any idea if it's going to work for me. I'm trying one meal a day, 6-7 pm, a quart of whole milk yogurt and some bacon. If it works out for me, that'll be great, but I think it'll be a few days before I know (today will be day 2) if I can actually lose this way. And if it turns out I can't, I'll have to do some more trial and error. Because of my diabetes, normal diets just plain don't do anything for me weight-wise. My endocrinologist has told me that he has NEVER seen a type I lose weight, so I'm a little scared I will have to suck it up and go back to cheeseburgers somehow.

Anyhow, I am not going to have a concrete diet plan by day 2 -- which I guess is today -- but I hope to have it nailed down by the two week point, when you're supposed to start your diet.

I'm thinking I'll jump in tomorrow for the new August support thread.
