My 'official' record is an app on my phone, with every item precisely weighed and counted. Though I also keep a simple hand-written record of what I've eaten. Just times, meal descriptions, and total calories - portion sizes and long ingredients lists stay in my app.
I've previously just used spiral bound notebooks and scribbled in them with blue pens, but after so long it was becoming an eyesore. I wanted something more neat and organized. Now it matches my journal perfectly - except my journal has a red cover.

I need to disappear, and I want to know how I'm progressing.
I don't want to get upset at the number, or make a habit of weighing myself too regularly, but I think it'll be okay. I'm going to discuss it with my dietician first, though.
Writing about how I'm feeling and what's happening isn't helping at all, so I'm trying to avoid it completely. Writing/talking is distressing at the moment, no matter what the subject, and every post & comment is taking embarrassingly long to write. It's completely ridiculous, because there's no reason to feel so distressed. There never is, but I always am. So forgive me if I'm a little vague.
But I'm feeling optimistic about losing weight this year, especially after having maintained for so long.
2013 is my Year to Disappear.
