All I want is Cheetos

I'm really tired today and when I'm tired all I want to do is eat, especially Cheetos. This is a bad habit. Cheetos don't make me feel any more awake they just taste good and tired Ginny wants them in her mouth. I shall resit though.

I've been trying to eat better. The biggest change has been getting a side salad or veggies on the side rather than french fries. This is a huge deal for me because I love french fries like they were my first born child and I tend to eat out a few times a week. It's been tough but then I remember that I actually enjoy salad. Not as much as french fries, but I'm not forcing myself to eat something I don't like.

I've also been trying to snack less. I'm a big snacker, especially at work. I'm trying to get better at waiting and determining if I'm actually hungry.

I purchased a scale because I know I'm a visual person and seeing the numbers on the scale will motivate me more than anything else. I only weigh myself once a week. I put the scale away otherwise because the cats will try to sit on it and it runs on batteries. I think Bosco is upset that I revealed his weight in a previous post or he's just a cat who will sit on anything because it's there.

I don't want to lose that much weight. Probably about 10lbs and then see where I go from there. I think that's reasonable. I'd to apologize in advance if the economy in Idaho tanks from my lack of potato eating.


  1. cheetos are the most satisfying shove-in-your-mouth snack ever. they call my name frequently.

  2. My cat sat on my scales once but I couldn't see how heavy she was. Good luck with it. It's a tough task, but ten pounds shouldn't be too hard, or take too long. Just don't get discouraged if the pounds don't melt off, or worse, you gain weight. These things happen. Just keep going, you'll be fine.
