I Wondered Why

This food diary is a real eye opener for me. I couldn't figure out why I was gaining weight. Ha! Well here's why in living color! Now the question is -what am I going to do about it?

I really do have a new found respect for all those who have posted their food diaries. It's very time consuming and can be a real exercise in discipline. I have the rest of last week to scan and post but when you start to hum along with the scanner it's time to stop for the day!

Most of my food diary is done from memory at odd moments during the day. I've found it to be a great help in sketching people in public. My power of observation is getting better and I retain it longer-great for adding to a sketch after the "model" has moved along. All in all I'm glad I started this project for Lent but Easter is still a long way off!


  1. I sure am impressed ... you eat a lot better than me. Of course, with the kids I enjoy a pretty steady diet of mac-n-cheese, chicken nuggets and pb&j. This is definitely making a great series!

  2. I think I might have commented on these food sketches in the past but I want to say it again: I love, love, love those sketches!

  3. Wow - I know what you mean, but Hey you burned some calories just sketching!? I always love these pages too.

  4. Thank you all.
    Sandy- I love the way you think! LOL

  5. your food diary is awesome!!!! I LOVE them!
    I found sketching my food at the time I am eating it is a great way to eating less - doesn't taste as good when cold! Keep it up!
