Tomorrow is DAY 1!

Friday, May 27, 2011

Well, I went to the grocery store yesterday & got lots of food to start Week 1 of Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet. I'm excited, but I'm also really nervous! I NEED to lose weight & I WANT to lose weight, but somewhere inside the fat kid in me is screaming at me to be LAZY! I'm really hoping that once I start eating healthy & working out I'll have more energy & more ambition...because right now I have very little. I've heard from friends & read from strangers about how WONDERFUL people feel when they start working out & eating right...I want that so bad! I want to be able to say NO to fast food & junk & be proud about it! That way when people respond with "Oh you must be on a diet" & they roll their eyes I can say "No, I'm on a not-putting-trash-in-my-body way of life" & feel confident with those words. I'm just so ready to be in shape & feel better about myself mentally & physically. I DREAM all the time about how great I'm going to look & feel once I lose weight....my BIGGEST downfall is that I get so discouraged when I don't see immediate results.

So anyways, here's to tomorrow! Wish me luck!

This is what I'll be eating tomorrow! :)

    No need to even comment to those folks ... but nowadays (rather than my age group back long ago) healthy lifestyles will let you be a happy person that has a chance to live a lot longer and in lots better shape ... so you are just gonna take advantage of that knowledge !! I never say I am dieting, I just tell em I'm keeping my body full of nutritious food for life!

    I wish you wonderful days on this journey ... sure looks like you prepared well !!

    I will be praying for your success! You can do it, just focus on the end results know that now contributes to that...I am in the same path and I have to switch the voice in my head telling me to give up. Take it one day at a time and do not be afraid to make each day seem like the first day. Forgive yourself when you fail and keep on moving forward. Good luck! emoticon
