Default Re-Committed

I feel like I do this a lot, but I fell seriously off of plan, and have recommitted as of today. I went to the gym for a bit over an hour (30 min elliptical plus weights), set up a Fitday account, and cleared the junk out of the house while replacing with better-for-me foods. I'm re-starting my weight ticker with today's weight as my "original" weight and am committing to losing 75 lbs (no "TRY TO LOSE" -- I'm going to do it!)

I also got a buy-one-get-one-free Mystic tan (UV-free spray tanning) to make myself feel just a shade or two better in my skin -- I live in FL, but am fair-skinned, so I don't spend a ton of time in the sun (hello sunburn)...however, I've been feeling "winter-white" over here, and chubby tan legs look slightly better on me than chubby doughy white ones.

I'm also committing to weighing once a week, on Sunday mornings. I've found that when I weigh daily, I get really happy when I see the weight drop down, and tend to think I can get complacent for a day or two, which turns into a week or two, and suddenly before I know it, I'm right back to where I was. So, once a week for me to help keep me from blowing the end of my weeks because "I've been good"!

I'm counting on dedication to pull me through where motivation hasn't. I need to lose this weight, and I'm committing myself to do so, effective immediately!

So that's my NSV today.

I have been trying to lose weight for 3 years, since my son was born. I always weigh daily and do EXACTLY what you say, feel like i can slack for a couple of days. I also live in florida, and am white as a ghost. I loved the mystic tans. I got SO DEPRESSED trying on clothes today, i HAVE to start losing weight. Im not going to say i HOPE you do well, its I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT!
