Well I got the guts to get on the scale today and a big surprise..........I havent gained anything, I havent lost, but I havent gained either. It was a bit of incentive to think more about getting another start.

Another big surprise, I actually took the time to spin for points and lo and behold...........got a whopping 20 today. I was the queen of 1 point many times in a row. It was also a nice little surprise.

I have decided to work on just taking my lunches to work with me, get plenty of exercise and water at work, but have not been taking lunch so I was buying fast food or eating junk from the machine. That will be my first step back.

Still cant figure whats at the bottom of my downfall again except the same as always........laziness. I have plenty of time for exercise, fixing foods, blogging, coming to the board, I am just too lazy. Need to force that out of me also.

I am also going to start with limiting my computer time to so much time a day and thats it. I now spend countless hours here doing nothing productive but playing games. And THAT is going to change. I will still be on quite a bit but now a good portion of the time will be my business work, yes I need to get that going yet too..........laziness again. And a portion for here for support and friend time, and a smaller portion of the day for playing games.

The more I sit and do nothing the more I want to sit and do nothing. Need to break that cycle somehow and the only way I know how is to put time limits on it. I have tons of good foods to fix in the freezer and every Monday off so what better time to fix my work lunches and also the family dinner. And to set out time to move this big butt in a fashion that will be beneficial for losing weight, not just from the computer, to the bathroom, to the kitchen to eat.

So a bit of good news, enough to get me to want to slowly work back to trying to do something again. I know I need to make more concrete plans and goals, never have done that yet. I need to stop talking and start walking, to throw out the all or nothing and accept the successes I can accomplish no matter how small they are. To learn to build on the smaller things to take steps toward the bigger things. I cant start at the top, I have to work from the bottom up.

All I do know is that I wont get any of it done if I do not come back here and get all the support and love that is here for me daily................free, just have to ask for it, and so easy for me to give back in return. Can I ever give enough back? That remains to be seen. At least I have "HERE" to come too, with the best friends a gal can ever ask for.

Thanks to you all. I love ya all bunches
