So here we go

Friday, January 18, 2013

This is my first blog entry. I have been tracking my food for a week now, and so far I'm feeling great. It's that classic 'first-week-of-healthy-living high' that I'm on.
I know that that enthusiasm I feel now will come and go, but my plan is to carry on no matter what my emotions are. I want to be consistent in this, whether I feel like it or not.

But right now I still like it.

I like knowing what I put in my body, I like planning out meals beforehand. I love trying out new recipes. And I love how I feel. I feel strong, in control, and healthy.

Like so many people, I have tried to lose weight before, and often succeeded. But never for the long run, I always end back up at 83kg. This time I'm making it a learning experience. I will learn how to live my life like a healthy person. And like with anything that you're learning, I'm sure there will be plenty of mistakes along the way.

I guess the key is to just keep getting on the bicycle, no matter how many times I fall off. And I'm excited, because it looks like it's going to be a great ride.
