Am I crazy to start over during the Holidays?

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Today I sat at my desk and I decided that I was tired of being fat. I don't like the way the biggest pair of jeans I own (size 16) are a little too tight and I don't like that my ankles and knees are starting to hurt when I walk. I've reached the highest weight that I've ever been at...EVER. I've been lazy about keeping myself healthy and I will be the first one to admit that it's easier not to have to work out and eat quick easy meals. I have three kids and by the time they are in bed, I'm too tired to do anything else. I'm going to start off by changing my diet and add exercise in (no more paying a monthly gym membership for nothing).

The only problem is that I've made this decision smack in the middle of the holiday season. I'm turning 30 on December 24th and I refuse to enter my thirties with an unhealthy lifestyle.

ok, here I go... emoticon

    I started 2 or 3 days before Thanksgiving - and yes, we are crazy. But just imagine what your starting weight would be if you started after New Years like everyone else?

  Thanks BigJohnVT! Good luck! 5 pounds by Christmas is very reasonable!

    Don't despair! My wife and I just started changing our lifestyles and exercising (in front of the TV) the weekend after Thanksgiving. I too am at my highest weight ever and I just couldn't stand to upsize my jeans again. Good luck in your quest, my goal is to be down 5 pounds by Christmas day!
