This is it!!!!!

I HAVE TO TRY or i am going to be one of those people that others look at and think 'what a shame, she would be quite pretty if she didn't let herself get so fat' or worse 'he left me because I didn't care about my body and I just ate and ate and ate' I HAVE TO TRY

A year ago i set up this page and i now weigh a stone more than i did then, it is sad and i really need to do something about it. i need a dieting buddy that i cam email every day and let them know how i get on and visa versa.

Going to follow these suggestions below from a positive person on spark:

1. Set attainable but challenging GOALS for yourself with a timeline.
2. Make REWARDS for reaching your goals (NON-food related rewards)
3. LOG ALL your food and make your tracker public so you are accountable for it.
4. Drink 8-10 glasses of plain WATER everyday! The more you drink it the more you will learn to love it. Cut sodas OUT! You always want to avoid drinking your calories!
5. Join an active team and PARTICIPATE!!! Get involved! Make friends! These will be the people that will pick you up when you are down and celebrate with you when you succeed! It's important to have support!
6. Don't be afraid to ask for HELP!
7. SOUL search.. there is a reason why you are overweight and most often it has nothing to do with food. Take time for yourself to work through issues non-related to food and you will be more likely to keep the weight off when you reach your goal by not having that baggage.
8. CELEBRATE victories! Don't be afraid to give yourself a "shout out!"... celebrate when you accomplish something no matter how big or small you might think it is.
9. BLOG, BLOG, BLOG!!!!! Get your thoughts out.. it really does help! Also helps track your progress! Take your measurements at the very beginning and make a note of them. You will rely on this if you hit a plateau you may not lose weight but inches! You will want to have this information.
10. Be PATIENT with your progress! It may be slower than most (like mine) but it's progress nonetheless! Focus on 5-10% at a time! You can do it! Believe in yourself!
