New Year, New Me

Well, I am serious about the weight loss thing. Maybe getting to my goal weight will help with my blood pressure, maybe it will help with my self esteem. So, this is the start. Over the last week, I lost one pound, which isn’t bad. A few things are going to start happening.
First I am going to start keeping a food diary on my computer. I will keep track of everything i eat and drink. The first step is to drink more water. I know, most people say drinking water helps, and maybe it will.
I also have a walking partner, in a way. Twice a day I will walk the dog for 10 minutes at a time to start. I am also going to take a nutrition class online that I found for free. This is a start. Oh, and when I walk with the dog, I will wear actual sneakers and not sandals or boots, something comfortable to walk in.
My initial goal is 145 pounds. I will do a “Weigh-In Wednesday” and I will refuse to step on the scale any other day. I will not obsess about the number.
It takes a lot for me to admit just how much I have let the number get out of control. I am currently a size 16-18 depending on the garment. That is unacceptable for me. My first goal is to get down to a size 14 again.
It won’t be easy, and I will slip up a little, but it is all about getting back on the proverbial horse when I mess up.
