Because I keep trying to be good about food and eat "sensibly", like avoid sugar and processed foods (but especially sugar and refined carbs), I keep trying different ways to motivate myself to do the right thing. I've tried keeping a food diary, but whenever I eat crap I stop updating it. I've tried lots of apps for food tracking and weight tracking and step-counting, but usually they are too fiddly or not specific enough or not customisable enough and I get pissed off and don't bother. I've even tried treating myself like a bloody five-year-old and putting colour-coded stickers on a wall calendar to track when I've eaten well (gold star), reasonably (silver or blue star), or really badly (red star). After a while I get sick of seeing red stars every day. Also, I run out of red stars. So maybe if I just give myself a gold or silver star when I've earned one?

Yeah, anyway... A Funny Comic That Shows Why We Fail Our Diets.

When I should have been sleeping I was looking for sites mainly for background tiling image generators or css gradient generators (but I soon got distracted with other things). One of the results is used as the background for this page. Later I might revisit some of these sites and add descriptions. For now it's just a list of links (in order of discovery).
