Day One

Thursday, May 01, 2008

Well, starting once again. This is the last time I have a Day One. Sounds good, hope I can stick to it. I have lots of motivation and I really want to do it but I just drift off in another direction, time passes and I have not moved 0n.

The last of my babies is leaving the nest. He is a 29 year old, 6' 1" body builder but he is still my youngest. When his older brother and sister moved out 11 and 7 years ago he said he was going to hang on as he always wanted to be an only child (only joking they all get on very well) but I think it was the undivided attention he wanted.

It will seem strange and Peter and I will have to get use to it being just the two of us. I hope there will not be too many rows!

My whole family, immediate and extended, want me to lose weight, for my own benefit and my health. I would do anything for any member of my family, so why don't I do this?

I am going to put losing weight as my No 1 priority to make myself happy and my family proud.

    Never get up. Keep telling yourself that this time you will reach all your goals.

    I've started over more times than I can count and just recently joined SparkPeople in yet another attempt to lose weight. I've found the tools and teams to be extremely helpful in keeping me on a better path.

    You can do it!

    Good luck Drakelow ... your post was right above mine and looked very familiar!! I set a "May only" goal ... I just want to do everything I can "right" for one whole month. My daughter gets married 6/7 and ... while I know I should have stuck to my "Day One" last year when she got engaged ... I didn't ... I got 18 pounds off and here I am ... so ... for MAY !!!

    Good luck with your re-start. All of the people on my team are in the re-start stage also, and hoping for the last time!

    I know we can all do this!
