Hi Everyone .. I'm very glad that I found this forum. I decided to start my "life style change" tomorrow (trying to stay away from the diet word), and I know myself well enough to know .. I need some form of support and outlet for my ups and downs.
I'll 26 (27 in April), married, have one child named Cody, I own a small business, and on most days I don't know if I'm coming or going. My life has become extremely hectic .
I have yo-yo'd my weight every since I was 15; been on every diet under the sun, would take the weight off for a few months then gain every bit back with an added 10 to 20 lbs.
I'm ready to give it another shot .. with every thing I got ...whoooohoooo .. poet and I didn't know it.
I want to take baby steps, and for every change I make to become a new habit and replace all the bad ones I currently have. There are two many to list .. trust me on this.
Not only do I want to "take" from the board .. but I hope to become an asset also (read many of the posts, and the people make the forum. .. amazing amount of support).
So for my first step : stop drinking a gallon and a half a day of tea. My fingers almost starting shaking when I typed that.
My real name is Debbie, and I am a tea addict ... I don't care what anyone says .. the stuff is like a drug.
I will cut my intake of tea to only 3 glasses a day for the first 2 weeks. Eventually my plan is to weed it out all together.
I'm gonna become a koolaid (sugar free) kid .. because I detest water from the bottom of my soul. Maybe I can work on that too ..
So there it is .. I typed it out. I've told myself .. one day at a time.
I'm glad I found you guys .. and I look forward to getting to know you on this journey.
Start weight: 245
Goal weight: 125
So basically .. I have a person to lose
