Where does the time go? I stepped on the scale this morning and just wanted to cry. I never would have thought that I would have gained as much weight as I have. However, instead of only crying, I've decided to do something about it. I'm not going to go through my house and throw away everything I'm not "supposed" to eat. I'm not going to tell myself that I can no longer have pizza or a cheeseburger, or take out from my favorite Chinese restaurant. I know that will only make me want it more.

So, I've decided to take it one hunger pang at a time. I figure if I can eat right most of the time and not deny myself things when I really wan them, maybe I won't feel so overwhelmed and maybe, just maybe, I can make smarter decisions a little at a time.

I've also decided to come back to SparkPeople. When I'm tracking what I eat, I find that I do make better decisions. When I have to weight myself and put that weight into the weight tracker, I much prefer to see the ticker moving down and not up.

I'm tired of being fat and feeling ugly. I also know that I'm the only one who can do anything about it. So far today has been a good day. It's always nice to start something new and have it going well on the first day.

My goals for this week:
1. track my food every day
2. do not obsess about what the scale says
3. exercise at least 3 times

Kind of small, but it's somewhere to start and not too overwhelming. Hope to see myself on here more and more with positive changes being made.

    Don't beat yourself up. Where you start is just that, a starting point. You have a good plan to start slow and take care of yourself. Its also a good plan to not overwhelm yourself or deprive yourself of everything. Sounds like you know what you are doing. Good for you. Best wishes. Stay strong and keep at it.
