If you notice from my ticker, I have been where you are. You CAN do this. The first few days are the hardest. Don't even give yourself the option of NOT doing it. I can't wait to start reading your success posts!!! They will be soon.

Having had enough is a GOOD thing. Being sick and tired of being sick and tired is EXACTLY how I felt. I too had FINALLY had enough. Though I have a real long way to go, I have brought my weight down considerably. So, yes YOU most certainly can too. Good luck.

You can do this! I certainly had a few false starts before I really got it in my head that I did not want to live life as a blob of a person. Make it a habit and make a commitment to yourself that you want to do this, and you will get there.
I look forward to your success!

I said the same thing (to myself) on January 2nd.....I hadn't worked out regularly in 8 months, at first family illness excuse, but lately my buttisimo felt like it was spreading lfaster than hot butter on a biscuit.....so I'm on day #10 of exercise...I started out with 10 mins. of cardio, now I'm doing about 25--30 mins. of interval (cardio, wt. dumbbell wt. sets).
If I can get out of bed at 530AM to exercise, anyone can do it...... I lost an inch on my waist so far and 1/2 inch of my left thigh....it's a start.
good luck, keep me posted.

Kris, I was just so fed up with being fat. My weight was at an all time high and my husband and I had got together with friends and one woman looked so fabulous. Granted, she'd had a tummy tuck and lipo several years ago, but she has kept the weight off. I felt so awful. Plus nothing in my closet fit me and I was considering breast reduction surgery. Seriously considering it. But there was this part of me that knew that if I lost 50 pounds, my breasts wouldn't be so large. So the next day I just started on a low-cal eating plan (it's not really structured--just stay around 1,200) and start walking again. It was last February and it was so, so hard at first. My hubby and 15yo daughter and I had really gotten into the habit of going out to eat A LOT so me not wanting to eat out all time was hard on everyone. Plus I cut out my 4-6 diet pepsis a day and just allowed myself 1-2 in the morning. In August I joined a gym. I didn't really start with a goal weight in mind. I just wanted to get into a size 12. I just kept losing and felt so good that I just stuck with it. I could still lose a few more pounds around my belly but I am going to try my hand at maintenance and see how I shape up after a few more months of working out at the gym.
Good luck to you. You really can do this! I was at rock bottom and somehow, after numerous false starts over a period of several years, finally decided it was time.

I really got it in my head that I did not want to live life as a blob of a person.
Yup, that's the key. It's not about the stomach or the mouth or the food. The key to weightloss is in the HEAD, the brain. And the brain can definitely be re-programmed IF you want it badly enough.
