Well, I did it. Today I went out to the store and bought myself a new food scale to try to keep my portions under control. I'm a little nervous about using it but excited as well. There are so many things a person needs to be responsible for in their lives, from finances to parenting to choosing healthy foods and exercise properly to maintain a healthy lifestyle and not end up in the grave prematurely. In my younger years I wasn't that concerned about all these things, as I was inevitablly going to live forever no matter how I treated my body. Being at the age of 41, I have finally opened my eyes and realized this isn't going to be the case, especially if I don't begin to IMMEDIATELY change my ways. I am not "dieting". I am making a lifestyle change! No one is responsible for myself other than me. I am not sure what exactly it was that opened my eyes but i'm glad it did. I just hope this isn't a part of the new year resolution trap that so many fall into because I don't make any resolutions because I know I will fail before the year is up. I hope to keep a food log on here also so I am more aware of what I am consuming. Anyone with any thoughts or suggestions, please feel free to express them to me.
