Just like the others here, I'm pretty new here, too.
You've got a lot going on in your life. I joined weight watchers with the exact same goal. *grin*
Okay. I'm just gonna tell you what I've been doing. I started August 1. It might sound funny, but today is August 13, I haven't cheated and it's the longest time I've been on a 'plan' without doing so.
I decided I'm going to *attack* my weightloss.
I registered at Fitday. It is the best diet plan I've ever seen. (Yikes! Fitday ISN'T a plan, it's just that actually SEEING what I'm eating has impacted me deeply!!!)
I've been scouring 3FC.
I've worked out 60-90 minutes every day. (I'm doing this for the next 15 days. I know that when school starts I'll need to reduce, so I feel this urgency to do what I can now... )
I read Tyler Durden's/Josephine's blog every day. I don't think I'm permitted to post links here, but she's a member and I've read every one of her blog posts because I found them so inspiring.
I spend a lot of time reading the goal and mini-goal pages. It's so helpful to see that real people, like you and me, can do this. *smile*.
I'm eating so much food. I've found a few things that are helping me. Rose's Canadian Bacon (Sams Club), tomatoes, OLIVE OIL (I can't believe this fits in my 'diet'!!!), Thomas' Whole Wheat mini bagels, Laughing Cow cheese, Skinny Cow ice cream, veggies).
I hope I'm not overwhelming you. And, I know I won't be able to keep this pace up forever. Again, I just wanted *attack* the problem instead of going the slow and easy way for a little while.
Take care and hang around! I'll be looking for you!
