Looking for a fresh start. I need one. I have abused myself for far too long. I have a long way to go before I reach my goals and I know it will take me a long time to achieve what I want, which is a healthier me, but I did not get this way in a short time and to undo all the damage I have done over these years will take a lot of effort and rethinking the way I eat, think and live. I dont expect to be perfect. I expect this will be difficult and I will fail at times, I know that too. I must allow myself those failures and learn to forgive myself and allow my friends and family to help me along the way ( something I have never been very good at).
My name is Wendy. I have 130 pounds to lose. I have to quit smoking. I want to learn to love exercising and to learn to discover who I am and love me or who I am, behind all the fat. I choose to live, really live. Finally.

My Goals:
I want to become a healthier person I want to lose the weight, all 130 pounds of it, and get into shape. I know I need to start living a healthier lifestyle, for myself and for my family. I also need to find it within myself to quit smoking so that I can achieve my goals, I know that I will never be able to exercise like I should if I dont. I know what I must do, I know what I want to do, but it all seems like such a daunting task ahead of me that I am starting with baby steps, the diet part.

My Program:
First I am beginning with small changes to my diet. I have so many things I need to change about my lifestyle, I feel like if I tried to do it all at once, I would be so overwhelmed and stressed that I would be setting myself up for yet another failure and I dont want that. So, I am taking baby steps, beginning with dietary changes like cutting out the massive amounts of Pepsi I usually drink and drinking more Propel water and being more mindful of the nightime "grazing" I tend to do while watching TV. I am also trying to track all my food that I do eat on my Spark People!

Next, I plan to add more dietary changes, eating less take out, less fried, more fish and chicken and grilled foods. I am not much of a veggie eater, so I guess I will be eating alot of salads and repeating alot of the same veggies over and over, but thats ok by me, I will be eating alot of fruits though!. As soon As I kick my killer smoking habit and get my breathing back under control, I will up my e
