Here I am...again.

My last attempt was good while it lasted, but didn't last long enough. I've heard that it takes 2 weeks to form a habit, so I've decided to start here. I will keep track of what I eat, when I exercise and most importantly, my weight. Baby steps.

I'm growing ever more fearful of the fact that if I don't change my lifestyle I WILL die of a heart attack. Heart disease runs predominantly on both sides of my family. My Dad is literally a heart attack waiting to happen. He has undergone 3 surgery's in the past year to open up his artery's and is now headed for a by-pass.

I'm scared for my health. And rightly so.

I know I don't eat as well as I should. I admit openly that I do not exercise. Ever. I don't walk. I don't go to the gym. I don't even try.

I'm my own worst enemy.

I woke up this morning and stepped on the scale. It didn't surprise me what it said - 158 lbs. I looked at myself in the mirror, muffin top hanging over my jeans. I feel disgusting. I literally tucked my rolls into my pants, put on a large sweater and left for work.

Time for change.

Here we go...
