January 1, 2012

Very first day of this weight loss project. There have many of these first days for me, some have been successful, some not. Problem was that I could not keep the weight off. I'll bet there aren't very many programs out there that I haven't tried. The biggest setback with their success was ME! I would start out full of motivation and determination, lose weight, then never keep up the maintenance part of it. So, the weight would come back, always with a little extra. A vicious circle I have been going around for a lot of years.
I haven't felt well for months and have been depressed about not having any energy to do anything but sit. I know it is all this extra weight I am dragging around with me.
So, after much thought on all of the options and programs I could do, I decided to go back and do the one program that did work the best for me and one that I actually felt good on. I am starting out with a 10 week program with an additional 2 weeks for an adjustment period. We will see where I am at that point as to how much longer I need to spend in "Actual" weight loss.
This time I am making a commitment to the Maintenance part of the program so I can finally keep the weight off and start feeling better.
For the next 3 days, according to my book, I will be doing what they call "Prep" menu. This is mainly to prepare my gallbladder for the diet so I don't have to worry about a big issue with that. Today I am also forcing myself to get outside and at least walk around the block once. I do have the luxury of having 2 dogs who love to go for walks, so today my husband can watch football and I will walk the dogs.
I don't have a number goal for the weight loss, my goal is to get myself where I am healthy and energized. Fitting into my favorite clothes will be a bonus.
See you tomorrow, on day 2.
