Lets just start with a confession shall we? I just finished off half a sleeve of oreos and a mountain dew. WhY, you ask? Tomorrow is detox day. This has been a long time coming. I did not go to the appointment that I had previously talked about. My mom went and told me the things that I would need to know. I am starting a diet tomorrow and its going to be brutal.......horribly brutal. But I am ready. The motivation is there and that's all I need. For now I am putting a halt on the weekly goals because I really feel like I need to solely dedicate myself to this. I have a lot of pounds to lose. Firstly I need to get my eating habits under control then the exercise regime will come into play.
I can't wait to be happy and healthy again. I have done the south beach diet before. It was very affective. I lost a lot of weight and It was a time of pure happiness. I know that I should be happy regardless of the weight that I am but I'm not. The diet is close to south beach but is a little tougher. I am hoping that along with the kind words from my mother that I can get this under control. My biggest obstacle this week will be one day after I start.....Thursday. It is book club day and we are going to the cheesecake factory. Boo...I am not going to get anything. Fellow bookclubbers have said that it will be lame if I do not get some cheesecake while there. But I am not going to. Its just like a drug addict, you can't have a lil meth every once in awhile. If I can get through Thursday then I know that I am on the right path.
I will periodically relay my progress. My goal is to lose 40 pounds. Here's to attempt #100ish....this time it's gonna work. Any kind words of encouragement or advice would be greatly appreciated. Love you all! Thanks in advance!
