Hey there! I'm glad you're here. That's one foot in the right direction for sure.
You mentioned the gazelle, but you haven't mentioned anything about what food plan you'll be following. A commonly tossed around figure is that weight loss is 80 percent food and 20 percent exercise, so your food consumption will really be the main player here. Do you have a plan of action in place?
You also mentioned that you usually wind up with a donut before long. So, what is in fact your food plan? How are you going about that? I find it's much easier to stay on plan (and avoid the donuts) if I've actually got a plan. For me, having my food mapped out in advance is crucial. I know exactly what I'm eating, I've got it prepared and I than don't have to contemplate about eating something *off*.
It's all about setting yourself up for success so that this can be your final Day One.
Anyways...ya, wish me luck on day one
I also urge you to not rely on luck to get this done. Because than, well frankly, you don't stand much of a chance. It's not luck or chance that determines who gets to be slim. Thank Goodness. This is something that we can all have. It's hard work, effort, thought, dedication, perseverance, and commitment that will get it done.
But make no mistake about it, you CAN do this. You absolutely can. You definitely have the ability to do it. You are capable of it. DECIDE to do it - once and for all, no matter what and permanently. Make it your job, your mission. Get excited about it. Don't dread the changes that need to occur, but look forward to them. Make it a challenge, make it interesting. Become passionate about it.
I look forward to hearing of your progress.
