I have never wrote a blog before but I figured hey, why not give it a go!

I have decided to make a commitment to loosing what was not my freshman 15 but has become my freshman+50. I have always loved food, but more so love to snack. I guess in a way it is almost like smoking because I think it simply becomes a habit. Over the next year I do not plan to necessarily break my habit because I think it is not a good idea to starve yourself of any particular food items. I have tried this before but ended up binge eating a certain item so it is best to use moderation and to think about each thing that you eat and ensure you are coming up with a productive way to counteract calorie intake.
I find myself entering into 2013 more heartbroken then I would have imagined about a month ago. I lost my father suddenly on Dec.27th, 2012. It has hurt me deeply and I guess you are never quite ready for a parent to leave you but in so many ways this heartache is what will push me forward to be more motivated in this commitment to losing my freshman+50. My father was always a healthy and fit man and was always looking for great new ways to stay tip top as life went on and further more he was always after me about the importance of staying fit.

I have decided to move forward in this but not with weight numbers only on my mind but also with measurements. I think it is so important to watch your inches because sometimes we can easily get discouraged but the more ways you have to measure your progress the more likely you will be to feel motivated.

So for today I will take step number 1 to Freshman+50

    Welcome to SparkPeople!!

You can do it! Just take baby steps, one day at a time. As long as you're committed, you can accomplish your goals!

I understand the pain of losing a parent. My dad passed away a little over a year ago, and there's not a day that goes by that I don't think about him. I know he's watching me and helping me along in my journey too. Just know that there are tons of wonderful, supportive people here at SP to talk to if you like.
