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!!
