Welcome

Hey, my first post!

This blog will mostly be about eating and weight loss. I may also talk about my life, or rant about random crap that happens during the day.

I have never been at a healthy adult weight as an adult - I reached and surpassed that milestone at the age of twelve. Since then, I have been steadily gaining, with occasional bouts of dieting that led to losses of 15 - 45 pounds.

Now I have found myself back at the point where I can either go forward and get healthy, or keep gaining. For me, at least, there isn't really an in-between as I have no maintenance skills.



Current stats:

Sex: Female
Age: 23
Height: 61 inches
Current weight: 188 pounds, wearing a US size 14 or 16
Highest weight: 205 (in 2009)
Lowest weight: Technically 7 pounds, but at this height, 147
Maybe Goal weight: 130
Location: New York City
Cheese: Pro

The title of the blog is pretty simple. It's a reminder of a simple concept that I need to internalize if I'm going to successfully lose weight: I am in control, not the food, both because I am human and it is inanimate, and because it will always be available.



I am very lucky to live in a country filled with food and money to buy it with, and hopefully I have many good years left to eat it. Therefore, there will virtually always be a next time for any particular food. I can buy some amazing sharp cheddar or whatever, enjoy a normal serving, and eat more of it the next day. And even the next day. I can also go to the store and buy more of the cheese.

It will be there. I am an adult and nobody will take my food away.

The title is also a tribute to the character Liz Lemon of 30 Rock, who has a particularly memorable and funny scene in which she sings about eating:
