About 1 1/2 years ago, I decided to start the 17 Day Diet....I did really well, I lost about 55 lbs and I felt wonderful....then I got all cocky and started eating some of the things that I knew in my heart I shouldn't eat. Well 1 lb went on, then 2, then 10, then 20 and now I am sitting with 32 extra lbs back on me and I KNOW I have to get them off.

Exercise has always been an 8 letter word that I never utilized....I figured I could lose the weight without it, I did it before, I can do it again. I don't know why I feel this way. I mean one of my very favourite reality shows is THE BIGGEST LOSER!!!!!!! I am a faithful watcher of that and think OMG, if only I could do that....well, I decided this time that I would incorporate exercise into my diet program.
How is it going? Not great right now....very slow, but it will pick up eventually. I am happy that I am at least doing something and not just sitting around seditary like before.

Is my weight coming off quickly????NOPE, but then I have a sluggish thyroid and take meds for it...well it is more than sluggish, it is that slows my weight loss down. Am I worried? NOPE, I know that if I continue doing what I am doing, it will come off and hopefully stay off (as long as I am mindful of what I am putting in my mouth).

How long do I hope to do this before I get to goal? That is a hard question....I hate putting a time limit on it as if I don't make it in that time, I will be really disappointed and may give up, so I will goal will be attained, when my goal is attained. Right now I am looking to get down below 200lbs and get back to ONEDERLAND once again and to get into the summer clothes that I was wearing last summer. That is my goal for now.
