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?
