Well, I have just gotten myself motivated to get started on my diet, so my plan to start is to eliminate restaurant eating completely. I work in a "very unhealthy" restaurant, and actually brought my own snacks and meal to work with me. Despite being the first day, I could feel my eating choices energizing me differently than the normal greasy carb laden food I enjoy to eat at work. For my fitness, I am going to start with walking my dog everyday, and ramping myself up to a better fitness routine.

My biggest weakness is soda. I usually drink diet soda, but I can drink three or 4 cans a night, not to mention what I get at work. I have put some diet sierra mist in my fridge, knowing at some point I will "need" a soda, and by not having the caffeine, I thought it might help my "addiction".

These are some of the steps I am taking to start, and will keep making more changes as I progress!!!

Hi, Ethan, welcome back! It takes a lot of courage to speak with such honesty, so I think you are off to a good start. Since you are very aware of what needs to change, what are you doing so far?

Hey Everyone!!!

I am from the Grand Rapids Michigan area.

I am going to be 29 years old in a couple of weeks. I've used Sparkpeople in the past, but now I have connecting it to facebook, twitter, and plan on uploading pictures and holding myself accountable. I love the idea of working with other people towards my goals; However, I am very shy and self conscious about my weight and body, and don't really have any friends that have the same issues that I have. Most of my friend, including my significant other, don't realize the struggles one has to go through 1. Being Fat, 2., Trying to lose weight, 3. Making healthy decisions. I don't drink alcohol, I don't smoke, so most of my health issues come from poor eating habits. I eat out way too much, and have no desire to make healthy choices in a restaurant, I eat A LOT. I always can eat what in front of me and more, regardless of if I still feel hungry or not. I don't eat more than usual when I stress, but when I am bored, I immediately begin to think I am hungry, and usually indulge myself. Candy and sweets are not the problem, other then the occasional ice cream, but I love myself pastas, potatoes, and carb laden heavy foods. While I know these foods "can" be acceptable, I NEVER eat the recommended serving size. These are all things I hope Spark People will help me get back in control. If I can't start getting my weight under control, I am seriously thinking about some type of weight loss surgery. With that being sad, even surgery won't prevent me from going back to my old eating habits. I don't want to hit 30 being this large, and I want to earn the satisfaction of losing the weight the old fashioned way!!!!
