I've been actively losing weight for over 2 years. In that time I have lost over 100 pounds on my own. One year into my weight loss I decided to start a blog. I felt like after one year of losing weight I was pretty serious about weight loss and needed something else to keep me accountable. I didn't want to be one of those people that started a blog about weight loss and didn't lose any weight.
I chose the title "Not an Effing Diet" because I was tired of people asking me how my "diet" was going. I found myself saying that I wasn't on a diet at least 3 times a week. I'm not on a diet. Everyone has a diet; it's the food you chose to eat. Some people have a good diet, some people have a bad diet. I'm not restricting food and food groups. I can and do eat what I want. I just follow guide lines. If I want it, I plan for it.
I never really tried to lose weight before 2 years ago. Now I follow a meal plan, have my body fat measured, workout on a very regular basis, and I've made a lot of other small changes in my life that have been really beneficial.
I want to keep this blog focused on my weight loss and working out. For that reason, I really don't get too personal about my life. I do slip from time to time and say more about my personal life than I would like to, but overall everything is pretty superficial!
I was not and am not over weight because I have deep seeded issues that I'm working through. I was so over weight because of sheer laziness and a huge love of food. I still love food. Now I just know how to eat in moderation.
If you would like more background, I suggest reading a few of my first posts.

Really? I've been blogging for a year?
