Starting Tomorrow

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

Okay, now I know that sounds like a cop out; it's what we always say. "I'll start tomorrow." I know I've said it a hundred times. Maybe a thousand even.

But I will start tomorrow. And the only reason I'm "starting tomorrow" is that there isn't enough "today" left to start with. Other than the fact that there is a WISE bag of Sour Cream and Onion potato chips sitting in my kitchen right now. And that I am purposely not eating them right now. That can count for today... right?

Let's start with me. I'm a 20 something average girl, working an 8 to 5 desk job Monday through Friday. I have a boyfriend and tons of friends. And I love to eat. I love to eat at work on lunch watching my Nook tablet. I love to eat at my desk for a break. I love to go out to dinners with my boyfriend and I love to eat when the girls and I have our Thursday nights and take in food and watch movies. I also love to go for walks and ballroom dance. Unfortunately, those last two I do the least. And I really need to begin doing them more because I desperately need to lose some weight.

As much as all the options on this website seem pretty cool (and a little complicated) my biggest concern is that I just need to share my thoughts on weight loss with people as I go through it. I am sure I am going to have my good days and my bad days, same as anybody else. But I've always found writing very therapeutic and I plan on using that as a huge motivating factor. So I am going to give the trackers a bit of a chance (altho I hate writing down the logistics of everything I do, I know I should, I've been on enough diets, but seriously, it's so tedious it makes me want to go grab a pack of Oreos and dig in while I update... lol)

So yeah, here I go. Starting tomorrow with the real food and exercise plans. But for tonight, I know that I've already started by signing up for this website instead of parking my butt in front of the television to watch my DVR as I dig into the sweet salty deliciousness of my favorite chips...

    I like your Blog. I have no idea how to Blog so I haven't earned those points yet. I so know what you are going through. I love to eat with my friends. There is something about having a good time with good company and adding good food to top it off. It's sad right now because my friends know I have to lose weight and I have no willpower when I'm with them. So until I can control my portions and my selection of food, I'm not doing any socializing with them where food is. I hope I can help you and motivate you so you reach your goal. You really don't want to be my age and your weight has been an issue for 20 years. There's too much life to enjoy than to food control you. You will succeed.

    I find logging everything work too.. I have a love/hate relationship with logging foods. It takes up too much time but it also helps me to stay on track with my diet. I am down 6 pounds since April 15th so far. My weigh in days are on Sundays so I haven't done weigh in for this week. And I do find blogging on here to help alot. It helps me to get things off my mind.. and I end up with advice from people I don't know. I don't worry about what I say when I blog because I know the people who post are probably never going to meet me.. and it helps me vent and stay on track! Hope it works out well for you! You can do it!
