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...
