My quest at finally shedding 100 pounds or more. Good days or bad, weight up or down, exercised or not, I want to blog about it to for the next 12-20 months. Why the next 20 months. I figure if I lose 5 pounds a month, it will take me 20 months. I'm hoping by doing this, not only will it hold me more accountable, but will help me figure out what triggers my downfalls.

Today is "Fat Tuesday". I don't know what other states do on Fat Tuesday, but here in Michigan (especially near the Detroit area) we eat "paczki's" (pronounced "punch-key). For those of you who don't know what a paczki is: it's a polish pastry and the best jelly (or cream-filled) donut you'll ever have. The ones pictured here are ones that I made. I decided not to make them this year. Way to tempting for me. Even though they are very good and I only have them once a year, it's not worth the 350-500 calories & 22-27 grams of fat. I would have to jog on the treadmill and extra 1 1/2-2 hours to work it off. I must admit that I'm a little sad that I'm not making them this year, but I would be sadder if I ate one or two or three of them. See the problem?
