Today is the first day of the rest of my life

Yes, I know that's a cliché, but it pretty much sums up how I feel.
I've been so lazy over the past couple of years. Ever since I retired (not voluntarily, I might add), I've just let myself go. Didn't have to look good for my job anymore since I didn't work outside of my little home-based alterations and custom sewing business. So, it was easy to eat anything I liked, and I do like just about everything, and pack on the pounds.
Well, that's all changing now. I'm back out in the workplace. I'm now working as an independent software consultant in addition to my home-based business and although I won't be doing a lot of onsite engagements, I will be doing some. In fact, I start one in just over a week and even though I have more business attire in my closet than most major department stores have in stock, I can't wear any of them. I guess that means I either head for one of those department stores or fire up the sewing machine for myself. And since I vowed I would not start sewing for myself again until I'd gotten back down to the size of my dress form, it looks like it's going to be a while.
So, here we go. I know it's going to take a lot of willpower on my part and I'm hoping for support from you, as well. I'm more than happy to reciprocate in that arena. This time it really is going to be the "first day of the REST OF MY LIFE!"
