Well, I have put off starting this for long enough. Originally the date was February 1, then I decided to wait until after Superbowl Sunday, then I decided to wean myself off caffeine before starting the actual diet...so anyways, here I am.
It's definitely time for this, as I'm at around the heaviest I've ever been. Having a car is nice but not walking has made more weight creep on...so exercise (which I haven't been doing enough of) is called for also...but first I'll get the diet on track. I will miss beer, but it will still be there when I'm done with my initial, strict first phase.
