This is a horrible record of how I have NOT done what I keep saying I will do. But here I am again, heavier than I've ever been, and saying I'll try again.

October 17, 2013

Still hasn't stuck, but trying yet again to get consistent and stop going up.

April 17, 2013
I won't bore you with the excuses, but the last effort lasted about a month and then died a violent death. Back again, and trying again, but with more weight to lose now.

Hopefully this is like trying to quit smoking, and one of these times it's going to stick! I'm not deleting anything below because I want to remind myself that I keep saying I'm going to do this, but I keep NOT doing it.

November 8, 2012 - trying again.

Almost a year ago I wrote the below information, but it's been a year of ups and downs and I'm actually a little heavier than I was then. Back surgery in November 2011 put me out of commission for a few months, but that's no longer an excuse.

I've been without a cigarette for over a year now, so it's time to tackle my weight for real. I suppose it's good that I keep trying.

So, August 1, 2012 yet another restart.

I'm trying to be more focused on achieving some goals that are important to me. One of those is my health and the biggest thing left in that category is my weight.

I've recently quit smoking, so I've started gaining a little weight as a result, and I need to stop that upward climb and start a downward slide. I don't want quitting one unhealthy habit to make me even more unhealthy in other ways.

I know that I can do this, because I've unfortunately done it before. From June 1999 to June 2000 I lost almost 80 pounds. I kept it off for a couple of years, but I got lazy and some life changes turned into excuses for me to get even lazier. End result, I gained it all back & then some.

So now, I have almost 95 pounds to lose but today, August 4, 2011 is the first day of getting to that goal.
