And thank you Shawna for revealing your identity and sharing part of your 'story'. Have you thought about starting a blog of your own? It helps me so much in keeping myself accountable. Let me know if you have one and I'll add you to my blog roll.

Anonymous commenter here :) I'm glad to help. I've been casually following your blog for years, but never commented before.

I think it's great that you're taking a positive step forward by logging your food intake. When I've had weight loss success in the past, it's usually involved logging what I eat. I think it's time to start that up again...

I know that for me, weight loss isn't about being perfect or eating exactly right all the time. It's about cutting out some of the mindless eating and finding ways to incorporate exercise that I enjoy into my daily life. I've done really well with the second part of that in my life over the last year, but the first has been lacking. It helps me to remind other people that you don't have to be perfect to be successful. Why is it always so clear when you see someone else putting unrealistic expectations on themselves but not when you're doing it to yourself? :)
