Today is a new day!

I'm making good on my promise - a little later than I had a desire to but I'm still doing it. I wanted to make sure I was going to be committed. No, not to the mental institution - at least not at this point. I've tried to make things as easy on myself as possible. I also want to make sure I'm going to lose this weight. So I've stepped it up a notch. I created a Facebook account for the blog. You can join by clicking on the fancy new icon on the right.

A few friends are already there but I'm creating discussions so we can keep track of all the progress we make. I also need someone to KICK MY **S into gear. That's where you come in. When I was in the military, you had people at basic training (or boot camp) that would wake you up and make you exercise. It was a forced buddy system. Well, I need that in order to get my tail into gear. So we don't have to hold back our support any longer. Join me over there and keep track of your food and exercise. If you don't get the chance to work out or just say forget it to keeping track, then just come over for the extra support. We all need it, right?

I'm also putting down what I eat and drink/exercise in my SparkPeople account. In case you don't know what that is, it's a free site that allows you to keep track of everything. I'm trying to do things right. I've given myself a goal of 1 year. The last time I actually weighed in at SparkPeople was in March of this year. Guess what I found out? I've gained 10 pounds since doing that! HELLO! That means taking charge of my weight really does help. So now I have to do this. Tell your friends we all need to help each other. Ask them to join my Facebook page and share their woes with me! I'll be posting here later tonight once I've eaten all of my meals.
