I'm cautiously optimistic. It's day three. That means that for the past three days I've been eating and exercising right. I've been trying to lose weight for two years now (!) only to actually gain weight. I've been at day three before. But this time is different. I've been exercising for the past few months. I've been planning my food and figuring out how to eat. I put them together once before for a week - and lost two pounds! But then life intervened and I gained back the two pounds. Plus another two.
But this time it's different. I've been practicing. I'm more motivated. I'm going to do it this time. The journey starts with a single step. And I'm already three steps in. I'm just going to keep on going, keep on figuring this thing out until I've got it down. Until I've lost the weight.
I'm six pounds less than obese. I can't even believe I write these words. Six pounds short of being obese. But here I am. Fourteen pounds over the maximum of healthy weight. My first goal is eight pounds. Let's see if I can get there!
Today is day three.
