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.

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.

Happy Almost Birthday, Kris!

Congrats on your decision! You have made a good start to your new year of health!

I bet you'll hit a smaller size LONG before summer!
