The benefit of planning

Thursday, August 30, 2012

I hear it all the time but for the first time today I truly believe it. I went to throw something together for lunch, and thought I was doing pretty good. Grabbed my laptop and started to enter what I was planning to have..... oops! Not so good! I was able to literally cut in half what I had out to put together and saved myself entirely too many calories!


And so it begins

I need help. My struggle has been going on for nearly 4 years. I jog 2-3 1/2 miles 4 - 5 times a week. I watch what I eat, limiting my calorie intake. But I have a horrible time dropping ANY of this weight. So, I decided to make myself accountable to you. Please help keep on track.

My overall goal is to lose 50 lbs. I know I could afford to lose more, but I want to start with 50. If I put it here then I have less of a chance of later saying "well, 40 would be good", "hmm, maybe just 30"!

But I need to START with 2! Right now, August 29th I want to lose 10 lbs by October 1. That is less than 2 lbs a week. I would love to hear how others have achieved this, hear your stories, helpful tips and tricks, etc.

And so it begins.....
