Life begins again today. A new year, a new start.
I woke this morning thinking OMG, my knees are killing me. I went dancing for new years eve and had a blast, but i hobbled home afterwards. My weight is hurting my joints. I have set a goal of 40 lbs. I have a trip planned the first of March to warmer climates and would love to be able to actually wear some of my summer clothes that have gathered dust from the last time I was able to fit in.
I am a yoyo dieter. I can be a machine and lose 50,60,70 lbs in 4-6 months when someone is monitoring me and I have to report. Then I fade away and somehow it just creeps back up. If anyone can tell me how that happens I would like to know. Makes no sense to me, I always feel like I am behaving but the scales and clothes tell me otherwise.
I intend to post daily in here. Write my thoughtsd and feelings about this journey. Frustration with a teenager who will complain that my food sucks and why can't she eat something else.
I intend to keep a food journal, this is something I only dabbled in before. I would be good for 1 day, then maybe 1 week, then like most of us, get lazy and skip a day, I can fill it in later. Then it would be 1 week, no problem, I can just complete it before I go to my meeting. Then I would miss a meeting and now i have 2 weeks to scribble in. Oh well, if I forget an item, who will know. and so on and so on .
My treadmill is behind me in my computer room and I am going to use it when I log out. I am starting a series of movies which I play on my computer screen. I'll tell you about how my FIRST installment goes later.
Signing off. wish me luck
