Well, I got side-lined. I'm not at all surprised - this happens all the time for me lately. We've all been battling colds and I used that as an excuse to just stop trying...
My older sister and brother and I share the same metabolism - so we all are all overweight. My brother is losing weight and my sister is too. She recently told me that she is under 200 pounds and doing really well. I'm really proud of her, but I was jealous too. If they can do this why the heck can't I?
<Insert loud sigh here.>
Today I ordered the NutriSystem program. I've used it before and done very well on it when I stuck with it. I committed quite a nice chunk of change to this so I WILL do it this time. I'm not doing it at as long-term thing mainly a few months so I can jump start something. I really need to see some results in order to get on board with something. Losing one pound a week when I try really hard is doing nothing for me and then I just give up. I need something. A miracle perhaps. I do know fully well that this is not going to be a magic fix - I know that if I can drop 20 pounds in a few months that I still have a long way to go and I will do it the right way (the long-term way) of eating healthy, smaller portions and working out on a regular basis.
So my food should be coming next week - perhaps Thursday. I will start the very next day regardless of what day of the week it is. Getting it all out of my system before I turn this around (hopefully) for good.
The only thing that "worries" me is that March and April are completely busy months for us - lots of birthdays, parties, etc. So I just need to plan ahead and if I am out I'll eat something small and not stress about it. I can easily share a piece of cake with my husband or daughters, I don't have to eat an entire piece myself - or an entire cake for that matter.
I WILL do this! I really have to.
