We are 5 days into our NEW YEAR, HAPPY 2011.

For many of us this means new resolutions and new goals. I for one will be doing both. I did not meet my goals for last year. In fact I actually gained about 15 pounds in 2010. I am happy though because I did not go back to 270 pounds which is where I was when I started SP. I am only up to 254 pounds and I am positive that I can lose atleast 30 pounds this year which is only 2.5 pounds per month.

I no longer have my P90X. I had to leave it behind when I left Iowa. So this year I will be looking into a health club and doing my pushups, situps, and other home exercises. I will also have to get back to eating more fresh prepared foods and less fast foods and less frozen meals. I did this once before and I know I can do it again. When I gave up fast foods in July of 2009, I lost 18 pounds by years end.

I feel that my home life for 2010 was a lot of the reason I gained weight. Now I am back in Florida and still depressed. I know that once I get back to work and re-establish my new home I will be happy again and I will be able to control my eating better.

I believe that my weight is not caused by amount of eating I did, but rather by the types of food I was eating. In fact I am actually eating less but also less healthier.

I hope that all of you who did not meet your goals in 2010 will NOT give up. Living unhealthy is much easier for us because we are used to it. We have to change our way of thinking and that is the difficult part. People are creatures of habit and habits are hard to break. We as people also tend to look for our comfort zone in bad times and for many of us that is unhealthy foods. All of us can and will succeed. Be patient and keep your spirits up. It will happen.
