I spent the last week reporting each and every thing I ate via Twitter. This was a very successful week for me, too, in that I was able to see what I was eating, where I was weighing in, and how I was progressing overall.
Then Twitter went down over the weekend, and I binged.
Let’s face it: I don’t want my diet to be a slave to the whims of somebody else’s technological issues. So… I’m going to be taking my Twitter diet to once-daily Live Journal posts. These will be friends-locked, but if you want in on the custom list just reply below. I’m sure all 700 of you don’t want to know what I’m eating, but I’m also sure that a few of you DO want to know.
EDIT: Oh, dang. The only way for me to include people in a custom group is for ME to friend THEM. *sigh*. No offense, folks, but just because you’re interested in my eating habits doesn’t mean I want you on my friends page (which is cluttered enough as it is.)
I suppose I could create a group?

Currently trying to tame the waistline, so I’d be curious about your daily menu…
I’d like in, please.
I’m curious, too.
Hmm… unless this is a test to see which of us are just creepy enough to be interested in this sort of thing, so you’ll know who to BLOCK from your entries… 😉
Opting in, if you don’t mind a random reader of your comic coming along for the ride.
I think I’ll do something similar. I need to get back under control.
If you need people to be judgemental online about your diet, i’m happy to help.
So what happens when LJ goes down?
Bacon and Ice Cream.
At least, that’s what I’d do.
I have a strange curiosity about people’s dietary customs.
Include me in the curious list please.
Easy way to un-clutter your friends page:
Create a group called “Default View”
Move everyone you want to see into it.
LJ will automagically rewrite the ‘standard’ friends page to display only those in Default View.
If you don’t add me, I’ll cry on Lyda Mae’s shoulders.
I don’t know about that but I do know that I like you, I like reading about your work, family etc… I even like reading about your experimental cooking.. but what you ate every day is not something I have to read.
Good luck, however!
LJ really needs some kind of consumer-side opt-in/opt-out from tags. Unfortunately it does not have such a thing.
