Cool Fresh meat in 2013!

Good afternoon ladies (and gents?). My name is Drizzz and I am on route to the first day of the rest of my life. I'm sure there will be a large influx of members from the UK and all over following NY with resutions, but I've come with a realisation. I've realised that I've lived a life I don't want to live for 23 years, and now I'm about to completely overhaul it all.

I have no action plan, other than to eat green and get lean.
I have no promises to keep, only to myself so I can't let anyone down.
There is no pressure from anyone to do it, and true to my character and I willing to go it alone. I am a loner; but I'll revel in the attention I get when I start my new life.
I have no "end time", no time when I will be accomplished, but I do have a start time. This time will be the first day of my life. The first day I look at myself and feel complete adoration for myself. Self worth. Self love. Self recognition. And until that day, I'll be preparing patiently for life to begin.

I may seem unprepared for what is to come, but this is where you guys come in. I am fully aware I need to do this, nobody else can. But I do not want a "diet". I want to be completely able to enjoy my life, not calorie count, but make conscious decisions to enable me to control what has become something of an addiction to food.

My only "long term goal" is to be fit enough, and thin enough to join a social football team! Haha.

Anyway, that's a fair intro, I think!
I wish all of you fat fighters luck in your own quest for happiness.

HI Drizzz

I found this site yesterday so we're both pretty much in the same boat. I totally agree with you about not wanting to be on a diet. I want to eat healthily long term, and have a better relationship with food.
Ive tried to lose weight half heartedly before but really want to do something now as Im at my heaviest and so want to change that.

Good luck on your weight loss journey, here's to us both being losers!

Sharon

Hi Sharon, pleased to meet you!

I wish you all the best in your plight and hopefully our paths will cross on here more often! Can't say I'm an avid forum user, but I'd like to keep track of my progress somewhere relatively anonymous :P

Hi Drizz and welcome!

I love the 'non-dieting' vibe, and help and support this place can offer in abundance. TBH, I think you sound plenty prepared enough, you seem to have the mental stuff sorted and that's the main battle, and will make the good choices come easier for now and forever, so, GO YOU!

I hope to see a lot more of you around as you embark on your journey

Taking a break from the scale, but BACK WITH A BANG! When I'm back in the UK in April 2013 I hope to be lower than 168, which is from July 2012ish and the lowest I got before some regaining. Until then, it's all about good food and exercise and no obsessing over numbers!

Hey folks.

I'm pretty adament to move forward with my life at this point. I envy everybody else's life because I'm ashamed of my own. I'm depressed because I'm fat, and I'm fat because I have a shocking relationship with food; The age old favourite 'I eat because I am unhappy.'

I've come to realise I have an "addictive personality." Or, in a less tarted up version, I've no willpower. Yet I can be so articulate and very competitive in other things: Projects.

It's going to be an awfy long journey to the top, but I have to do this for me. Project me.

Good luck to each and every one of you and I hope I see you all around for my version of Rent-A-Crowd :P

Much love!

Hi Drizzz

Another Jan newbie here. I'm using MyFitnessPal to calorie count and log my food because to me, that feels like my project plan (I like projects too!).

I was just wondering out of interest, how you are going to be making these changes to your relationship with food without following a diet or calorie count? I ask because I know (as I've tried in the past) that without an external structure to follow, I can get lost in the choices available and just revert to old habits, so am very interested in how others manage it.
