Starting Fresh

Thursday, April 02, 2009

Man, it's been a long time since I've stopped to write a blog entry. The last few months have been rough. I completely fell off track and let myself go AGAIN! When life gets tough, which it has been a struggle lately, I tend to rely on food to get me through. I can't for the life of me figure out why I do that. It's something that I really need to get under control if I ever want to make a go at this weight loss journey. I came across the Fat Smash Diet by Dr. Ian Smith and I instantly felt like it was something that I could do and live with forever. I started it 9 days ago and these 9 days have been hard. It's like a "detox" phase, but I made it and it feels wonderful. I'm proud that I made the commitment and I stuck to it for once in my life. I lost 6 lbs. in those 9 days and am absolutely thrilled. I'm off to Phase 2 feeling confident that I can do this and really lose this weight once and for all. I'm hoping to lose an average of about 2lbs a week give or take and I will meet my goal by the end of the year. If I put my mind to it I know I can make it happen. I made a resolution at the beginning of the year that 2009 would be the last year I would remain overweight and I actually think I am going to accomplish that goal. I can't imagine starting a New Year not making some kind of resolution about weight loss. 2010 just may be the year that I don't! That's just exciting! Such a motivation!!

    For exercise I've been doing the Biggest Loser Bootcamp video 5 times a week. I also ride my stationary bike at night while I watch TV. I'm going to start jogging/walking outside this week as the weather gets nicer! Thanks for the comment!

    Blogging helps me ALOT. I find it refreshing to be able to say what I want without being attacked. Good luck with your plan WORK the PLAN! You mentions the food but what are you doing for exercise ...I have finally become addicted to doing something other that eating my stress away.
