I am also finding out that this is a "LIFE" change not just a temporary thing. I have no desire to just be "skinny". I want to be healthy! I am having to re-evaluate every aspect of life. That's a hard thing to do for me, but willing to do it nonetheless.
I have set small goals instead of big ones. If I set my goals to high...I will give up yet one more time. I honestly can't afford to do that to me one more time. I set my first goal to lose 20 pounds. With that I will reward myself in some way or another. (No...not by dessert)! I also give myself 3 months to accomplish that goal.
I know I have the knowledge to do this....and I will. Good luck to everyone else on this same mission. My thoughts are with you! =)

I have to mention...I hate grocery shopping! I think it's a waste of my time. Planning meals...listing each and every ingredient as not to have to make yet another trip to the store. I am a get in and get out kinda girl. I never had a problem going to the chip lane. Just pick them up and throw them in the cart. =) So now I am required to spend double that time in the store....looking for..
- Fiber grams
- Fat grams
- and now....high-fructose corn syrup
LOL...again.....What am I looking for?? This whole diet thing isn't what it's cracked up to be. So in close....I think I will take all my knowledge I have recieved and walk to the fridge( that's excercise ya know!) and pull out the chicken breast(skinless...boneless) and the head of lettuce and chop it all up and call it....Confused Chicken Salad!

I have found myself saying "I would do ANYTHING to lose weight" Really??? Ok well I have discovered there are 2 things I won't do to lose weight.
- Eat Healthy
It doesn't make any sense to me. So throughout this journey of trying to eat healthy and do more exercise, I thought I would journal on it and maybe get some feed back from others who have been where I am now and can offer some advice!
Oh by the way....I'm starting this tomorrow... =) LOL
