Day 1

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Today is day 1, day 1 that I have decided to make a promise to myself that I will change the way I am living. It was kind of a rough start today putting in my substitutes meals in and realizing that the cookie I had as a lunch snack actually cost me 620 calories! This is definitely a learning experience, but a good one. What I am finding out today is going to help me as I continue on my journey to lose weight. I am sure that there will be points where I set myself back, but the point is, is that I am trying and its better than not doing anything.

I am really excited to start this and seeing the results. I have seen and read other people's blogs and I realize that the feelings I feel and the experiences I have or still currently, are also felt by other people. I feel like a lot has been lifted off my shoulders and I found where I need to be. This new year, I have made a promise to make me better. There is always a reason for second chances, and I am willing to give this lifestyle change a chance!

Best luck to everyone!

    I am just starting this too!!! I'm just really doing my food tracker right now, but hope to get on board with the fitness tracker pretty soon. It's so eye opening to see the calories in things that I would normally just eat and not think about. Good Luck on your new journey!! We can do this! emoticon
