It's a new year and here I am once again saying this will be the year I lose weight. But I really mean it this time. No excuses. I have to do this. I'm encouraged by the weight I lost over the summer. I didn't do so well once school started back, but I managed to at least maintain my weight loss through the stress of school and all the junk I ate during the holidays. So at least I'm not starting back where I was a year ago. At least I'm 15 pounds smaller. Small victories.
My problem now is just starting a diet. Ultimately I want a healthy lifestyle that I can live with long term, but I want to start out doing the anti-inflammatory diet. I feel like it is a very healthy way to lose weight, and even though it's a bit tough, it's something I know I can stick to. It's just getting started that's hard. I'm struggling to plan my meals, etc. I think the first step is the hardest.
I'm grocery shopping tomorrow and starting this diet on Friday. No excuses. I've already cleaned out my fridge and tomorrow I'll work on the pantry.
