Time for an ugly reality check...

I weight 230 lbs. I can't believe I let it creep back up that high. And I can't let it continue, I have to send it in the opposite direction. So I'm going to go public, and try to make myself accountable, publicly. I need to stop procrastinating because my arm chair is so comfy and the heating pad feels good on my back. I need to stop snacking from the vending machine at work. If I pack healthy snacks, I eat them. I *LIKE* healthy food. I'm just too lazy. The plan is to pay more attention to what I'm eating and why I'm eating it, to have healthier snacks on hand, and to do something in the way of exercise for a minimum of 15 minutes/day. Weigh ins will be ~ once/week as I remember to do them. I always start out strong but lose steam. If I'm doing well and manage the exercise up every day for the next two weeks, I'm going to sign up for the online Weight Watchers tools. I know I do well when I have the geekiness of tracking online each and every time I eat. I know I can do it, all I need is the motivation...

Today's Report:
Food: So-so. No snacking from the vending machine, but hotdogs for dinner. No evening snacks though!
Exercise: 50 pushups, 20 crunches and a 1 mile walk with Brian

I found that weighing in once a week let me gain 5 pounds in that week. Had to go to daily weigh ins to see what was happening immediately! Just a thought, written with much love.
Sorry your bbq got rained out!

Best of Luck with the weight loss plan. I go for monthly weigh-in's at my herbalist's clinic - that way I hopefully get a really nice surprise each 4 weeks! LOL Otherwise I get too obsessed with losing weight, lose heart if it's not happening as fast as I feel it should & give up. Each to their own method though. Will be cheering you on. :0)
