It's the 1st of a new month and time to try something new. I am starting a blog for the first time to help me reach my weight loss goal. I have resolved to post something every day of this month. I am hoping this will help me to be accountable, get support, help me to gain a better understanding of what's working for me and what is not on this weight loss journey. I am looking for new friends here who will help me to stay accountable. This is not the first time that I resolve to work hard to lose weight. I already know a lot about what it takes to lose the weight and keep it off. But I need to find support in staying on track. I am hoping that a daily weight loss blog in addition to other things will help.

A little bit about myself. I am a woman. I am in my mid-30s. I am married. I live in Canada. My height is 5 feet 3 inches. At my heaviest I weighed in at 191 pounds. I currently weigh 186 pounds and my goal is to be at 140 pounds, so I have 46 pounds to lose. I want to lose the excess pounds for good, not just reach a certain weight by certain date and then later re-gain, which is what usually happens. There are many things I do to help me lose weight, but the main ones are writing down what I eat, counting calories, exercising regularly, clean eating and cooking at home. I do not strictly follow a particular diet. Rather I try to follow an overall healthy but varied eating plan that I hope to be on for the rest of my life. The main thing is that I meticulously track what and how much I eat and try to stay within a certain caloric and nutritional range every day. I will share more details in future blog entries to come.

While I am writing a public blog, I want to maintain a certain degree of privacy because while I want to be very open and honest about my feelings, my struggles, and many other things in my life, at the same time I don't want my co-workers or random acquaintances finding this blog, identifying who I am, and then getting a secret scoop on those parts of my life that I never meant to share with those particular people. This is why while my blog is public, I do not plan to (for now at least) post my pictures or share my real name or other identifying information. I am hoping that by remaining anonymous I will be more at ease to be genuine, open, and share personal things here.

Welcome to my page, my blog. I am excited to meet new people here and share in everything (the good and the bad) that comes with the journey of weight loss.

    Looking forward to getting to know you better! I do WW too--I have found that Spark & WW are a great combination for me. I've done WW longer than Spark--but will try to answer any questions you may have.
