September is usually the time of year when I start my “diet” in earnest. Each year it is the same thing. Spreadsheets get put together with the number of weeks remaining till December and calculations of how much weight I could realistically lose before then. I am not joking , I have these spreadsheets still saved on my computer and the only thing different is the year. The one thing they all have in common though, is that entries usually fizzle out a few weeks after the said spreadsheet has been compiled. It is pretty hard to stay motivated when you don’t see any results week after week. Each December holiday season I would get so unhappy that my goals had not been achieved – yet AGAIN!
