Dieting on Valentine's Day, My February Diet Plan
After watching the people around me consumed heart-shaped boxes of delectable chocolates, I was momentarily snapped to my Diet Senses.
Temptation didn't exist - I was determined to get all the weight off and even chocolate - rich, dark, creamy chocolate held no temptation for me.

I highly encourage you to weigh often while you are dieting as you can also discover secrets about how your body handles weight loss. If you have a significant amount of excess body fat to lose, you may experience much of what I saw.

This situation followed me throughout the existence of my final diet plan.
By the end of February, my scales appeared to be locked. I was so upset that I jumped up and down on them, which wasn't smart because I broke the darn things. Why were the numbers stuck on 195 pounds? I'd been there for about a month now. No fair! Continue
