Started a diet a while back.  I've lost 16 pounds so far.  It was kind of dicey at first.  Beginning a diet has always been the hard part for me.  That and actually working out.  I hate working out for the sake of working out.  Give me a martial arts class, a construction project, biking to the store, anything.  Just so long as it isn't walking on a treadmill for a half an hour.  But, strangely, I love weight training.  Which is good, because building muscle increases metabolism, which is always a good thing when you're trying to lose weight.

Now, it's almost no big deal.  And I've found some absolutely wonderful snacks.  My personal favorite is these mini cakes.  They are quite addicting.  I once ate four in one day, which was probably a bad thing since they have so much dietary fiber in them and you should really only eat about 25g a day for women.  If you put them in the microwave until they're nice and warm, it's like eating a cake right out of the oven.  All warm and melty chocolate chips.  Mmmm.  I think I want one...
