After numerous tries to get motivated, I finally began the Phase 1 SD today! This past year has been the most stressful of my life and I have added another 20 lbs. to my weight. One of the stressors was the recent, sudden death of a younger sister. She would probably still be alive if she had made healthy lifestyle changes. I feel that if I need to heed the lesson in this.
I have had a few false starts in the last few months. But, this time I am planning ahead, which I think is key. Glad to be a part of this group.
