I have to admit, I loved this when I saw it so I borrowed it from another user. I have started over so many times that I cannot count. This time is different. This time I will win.
I have a co-worker who has been on every diet you can think of. She has gained and lost so much over the years and I think to myself, I wish I had the willpower to stick to a plan. My deep-down inner self tells me that I just need to find the plan that works for me and adopt it for life. I don't want to be the up-and-down person who continually yo-yo's. I'm not saying that's bad...just that I want to be the one who loses and keeps it off.
My plan is to count everything that goes in my mouth. I have allowed myself to gain over 100 pounds since I got married. That's a whole person! I want to lose that person but not all that she has learned along the way. I don't expect to do it in a few months or even a year. I expect to slowly lose and have a setback here and there but have enough willpower to jump back on the wagon and keep pushing.
My first goal is 5 pounds by the end of January (23 days). When I reach that goal, my reward will be looser fitting clothes.
It's less than 4 months before my daughter's wedding so I'm ready to go!
