The journey always begins with the 1st step

Something's gotta give. I am tired of sulking about not being in shape, so today as I stepped on the scale, I got the scare of my life. So now, I have to get serious.

I don't want to make any unrealistic goals, like become a hard body like Jillian Michaels, but I must commit to drop at least 45 pounds before the end of the year.

So today that's my goal. I will maintain this journal as a reminder of what I want to see in the next 8 months.

Meanwhile, I'm off to a positive start. Salad for lunch. Stir fry for dinner with another salad. Nothing to eat since. And the most startling, I haven't had a single piece of chocolate despite the fact that yesterday was Easter and there is about 6.75 pounds of it in the house.

starting exercising
drink more water
eliminate carbs slowly
eat more fruits and veggies
stop snacking on junk
start a food journa
enlist support

go to bed smiling
