Default Getting Ready to Get Started

Hi all & Happy New Year!!

Yes - I have looked at my calendar..... and for us accoutant type people, life has begun again

So - I've been sitting on my butt for 3 1/2 months, and I need to get motivated to get back in the swing of healthy eating & living.

I don't want to ramble too much in my first post.... but I can honestly say - been here - done it - and failed miserably..... 1 step forward - 3 steps back

I will put my starting weight (which is 300+) on monday - when I'll start. That will give me the weekend to clear out all the junk food in the house.

I would love to know that there's someone out there like me - who has self esteem issues that have caused the not taking care of herself. But it would make it so much more realistic for me to know that someone actually figured out a way to succeed - long term.

I'll be round here a lot - hoping to get & give support.

thank you

I've been sitting on my butt for about 6 months now. I REALLY need to get up and get moving also.
Clearing out all the junk food is the perfect start!
Good luck and PM me if you ever want to talk!
