Decision Made...

I have decided it is time to start looking at my weight again. Sigh... I got on the scales this morning. Surprisingly I am .5kg lighter than when I stopped dieting in June. I don't know how I managed that, but I'm not complaining.

I am not going back to Calorie King. Mainly because I believe that is where my previous obsession came from: the constant blogging and chatting on the forums and comparing - it took over my life!

I have downloaded an app for my phone (a free one) called Shape Up. It is like the CK software. It is American though, so I'll have to load a lot of my foods in myself, but once they are in there they are there for good.

If I start obsessing, I'll stop. Simple as that. I can't do that to myself again. If you notice me obsessing I am going to have to trust you all to tell me.

I will tell you :)

I have the CK software, and for the most part, at home and stuff now, I stop the forums and things like that. Only when I am at work and a little bored...

The software allows me to do my own thing, and not worry about it while at work. And the blogging stops me from being a total fiend.

Good luck on starting again. Good that you are 500g down too!!

I'm back on CK and losing some weight, but kinda getting back into the obsessive mode. I'm never sure if it's the CK setup or just my OCD personality, I tend to be all or nothing no matter what I'm doing.

I've heard others say they really like the shape up app, so let us know how it goes :)
