We have a pantry and fridge full of wonderful healthy groceries (and a bank account that shows it - yowch!)! I have a weight watchers points calculator and a nutrition calculator saved in my favorites list. I made a list of foods to eat tomorrow that I know will be filling and delicious. I'm ready.

Some things I'm nervous about:

* The crazy expensive cost of good food.
* Making the mental change
* Pressure from friends and family to give in to my wants instead of my needs
* My history of not finishing what I start
* Something bad happening again that will undermine my willpower
* That this won't work for me, and I'll be stuck again with yet another diet plan that didn't work.

Here's hoping that a plan will help me. If I can create a menu the night before, I think I'll be doing a lot better than if I "wing it"

    No excuses, yes some of the healthy foods, are a little more expensive, but buy what's in season and that will help on the fresh veggies and fruits. Remember everything is portion controlled so your eating less, but filling up. After a few weeks you'll see the shopping isn't as bad as that first week you buy everything. Come here often, everyone at sparks wants us to succeed and we will do it. emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you are on your first week, I am on my second today. My WI was awesome!

    I was scared too! but this team supported me along the way, they are the bomb.

    You will do great also, this is easy to follow and kind of fun!
    I am not quite sure why I waited so long to try it.
