Please Put Down The Taco!

Welcome to my weight loss blog!

I’ve been “going on a diet on Monday” for the last six months. Every Monday I plan to start my diet. And every Monday, I do great until lunch. Then I hit the drive-thru. Or the ice cream shop. Or the cookie jar.

I’m done waiting until Monday. I’ve got to stop this cycle. I’m killing myself.

I am 27 years old, 247 pounds. I have a family history of early heart disease (on my paternal family, my grandfather is the oldest member to have a heart attack, he put his off until 55. My dad had his first in his 30’s, and my aunt was 29.) I also have a family history of diabetes. And I do not want either. So I need to change this, and change it now.

I decided this tonight while I downed a dinner that would feed a family of 4. Then finished it off with a cake. An entire cake. (Ok, it was one meant for a child’s first birthday… but still, I ate the whole thing. )

So here I am. Starting my journey. Not tomorrow. Not Monday. But right now. Right this minute.
