Day One, here we go. I honestly HATE writing but I know that this will help keep me accountable. I have needed to lose over 50 pounds since the birth of me second son almost 8 years ago but I always had an "excuse". I've always struggled with my weight and I have lost and gained the same 30 lbs I don't know what to do! Losing weight is easy to tell you the truth- it's the keeping it off that's hard. I've never been able to "not think of food" and I resent it. Even when I was young it was always an issue. I went on my first diet- slimfast - at age 11. I never got to be one of those kids who could eat chips or cake or candy without seeing the results on the scale. I was always active- I played sports year round- but that didn't affect my weight. I was always bigger than everyone else. Now when I want something I eat it because I am sick of depriving myself- but I am also sick of seeing this body in pictures. I have to find a healthy balance that I can maintain...I turned 40 in September and I had planned to NOT enter this decade this size...too late...but I am going to change...change the way I eat, change my relationship with food, change my body- forever- I have to. The journey begins today, January 18, 2011.
