Hi everyone,

My name is Joanna and I'm addicted to food. Like alcoholism leads to cirrhosis, smoking leads to lung cancer, food leads to obesity. I'm starting this introduction out in a very somber manner - but it's just to give a little background on me, and will in no way portray the actual manner of the future installments.

For several years, I have struggled with my weight. I've tried dieting, I've tried exercising here and there..but with little or no success. I've bought books, tapes, CDs, watched TV shows - nothing has really helped. Every diet and weight loss program that I have started have all said that there is a very important factor that a person needs to do in order to achieve weight loss - and that's to keep a food journal. Well, to me, that was something really hard to do. It was so boring to write down everything I ate, tally up the calories I consumed, blah, blah, blah, that I decided to go a different approach - thus which leads me to this blog.

I think that weight loss, for a food addict anyways, needs to be approached as any other addiction. There's going to be ups, downs, withdrawal symptoms, falling "back on the wagon", etc. Being that I really do love to write, love to entertain, and really need to find something that will work with my weight loss I decided I would try something a little different. This will be a dieting journal - but instead of hearing about the boring details of what I ate and how much I weigh - I figured I'd throw in all of the "craziness" that will be associated with the whole process.

So - have fun, enjoy, feel free to laugh - I hope this will be a story of fun, pain, and ultimately weight loss.
