Thank you all for your support. I didn't do awesome today as I thought I would, especially considering the horrible day I had yesterday. But, like I said, convenient memory. I still need to get my scale and weigh myself tomorrow morning for my new official starting point.
In regards to comments about removing tempting food from the house, that's very difficult when I live with 7 people, 4 of which are 13 and under, one is my boyfriend, and two are my parents who homemade delicious food all the time. I don't really do shopping, I don't have the means. I can go shopping with my mom and put healthy stuff in her cart, but that won't change the temptation factor in the house.
In regards to wigs, yup, I got a wig, so it's nice to know I have the option.
One strategy for success that I'm implementing tomorrow include 1) counting weight watchers points, 2) walking and not sleeping in, 3) drinking all my water, 4) my dentist prescribed this mouthwash for me that really takes away my sense of taste and leaves my mouth feeling odd, so that will help me from overeating.
My boyfriend also has about 50 pounds he wants to lose, so at least I have support from him. His 50 pounds is sure a lot different from my 130, and his male metabolism will be working for him, but it isn't a competition. He reminds me that when we both get healthy, that means the longer lives we'll have to spend together, and also more energy for going out and fun.
