Unhappy im new and have 131 lbs to lose

hi folks

Im going for a walk today with my new mp3. it helps. I have been tracking my food intake calories I ate to much last night but I had salad with lowfat dressing and 1 cookie. I am glad that I ate the salad or it would have been the whole box of cookies...anyway Im starting a new day today and looking forward to positive results.

Welcome! I don't post much here anymore, but saw your post and wanted to welcome you to the 100 Lb. Club.

One of the things that many of us have discovered is that we need to rid our houses of "trigger" foods. Perhaps you can start the day by dumping the cookies out so that you won't be tempted. However, moderation does work for some (not me, unfortunately). As you start losing, you'll figure out what works for you and what doesn't.

Have fun on your walk and post often!

Hi and welcome to a fabulous place for advice, support and encouragement.

I'm with the very wise Sheila on this one. Rid thy house of thy junk. You can't eat it if it's not there. That's all there is to it. SET YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS. Get rid of your "trigger" foods. But make sure to ADD in lots of wholesome, delicious foods, so that you have what to eat. PLAN out your meals and snacks IN ADVANCE. Having a plan in place is essential IMO. Eating healthy just won't happen on it's own. So therefore I rely heavily on planning.

Losing weight and a lot of it is a doable thing. Get excited about the changes you are going to make as you transform your life. I look forward to hearing lots more from you.

Yep. Ditch the cookies. For now... maybe forever. Sugar is a HUGE trigger for me so i only have foods in the house that I can eat (except for foods that I HATE and the kids like... animal crackers for instance.)

Welcome welcome to the 100 club! I think you'll like it here. And enjoy your walk!!!

PS: try not to look at it as you have 131 lbs to lose... I had 226 lbs to lose!!!! And well you've seen me around the school and know how far I've come. It's so doable my friend
On my own personal journey I started on September 27, 2008
Starting weight 377, Weight in spring of 2010 198, Weight in August 2011? In the 240's.
Still plugging along on this weight loss highway!
