I'm finally ready to do this

I have been struggling to lose 20 pounds for the last 20 years! I know, it's not a lot of weight, but as a fitness enthusiast who worked as a group fitness instructor for 10 years, it was always a hindrance. Now I am ready to be a healthy food enthusiast as well. I also realize that exercise alone can't do it for me. I have to eat well to achieve my goal.

First - to drastically reduce the amount of empty calories I consume.

I am cooking on the weekends so I can bring my breakfast and lunch to work.

I am tracking religiously to get a more accurate account of the calories I am consuming, and which foods contains the nutrients I'm lacking in my diet.

I am limiting the amount of sugar and sodium I have by avoiding fast foods and desserts whenever possible.

Thanks for the comment on my blog, the sugar gets me every time! It is very difficult for me to stop once I start eating it. Good Luck!
