Another Go Round

The last several months have been really hard on me for one reason or another. I'm still not feeling 100% like my normal self, but I'm trying to make a go of things. Needless to say my enthusiasm for keeping up on all things diet and weight loss related went to the wayside.
And oh boy can I tell.
My clothes don't fit like they should. I'm self conscious about the way I look. I'm constantly beating myself up (in my head) over what I eat and how much I eat and why can't I just work out already. I literally feel like crap. I'm tired all the time. I'm just plain miserable.
So today I made the decision that I needed to pull myself out of the hole I've been wallowing in and decided that it was time (AGAIN) to get serious about my health and my lifestyle and once and for all (by god it better be the last time I ever say this) kick all these extra pounds to the curb. And keep them there.
I know I can do it. I want to do it. I just can't let myself lose focus. Or give up. There isn't anything worse than giving up on yourself and I can't even count the number of times I've done that. I deserve better than that.
I found a website called The Daily Plate and I created myself a free account. I'm going to start food journaling again (the site offers it) and keeping track of calories in / calories out. I've set my weight loss goals and documented how much I weigh right this very minute.
I think I'm well on my way. There's no turning back now. Join me in the on-going journey, would ya?

Good for you for getting back on track. Its been a tough winter. I know I've had trouble staying on track the last couple of months too, but I feel like I'm finally getting back on track. You'll feel so much better once you are headed back in the right direction!
