Blogging - Day One

So I sat with Jen tonight at dinner before our meeting, and I told her that I was thinking about blogging about this most difficult journey for me. I was telling her that I thought maybe others (if there are any that read this LOL) helping me along, maybe a little support group for me, might help. She agreed fully. You see, those of you that know me know that my weight is a problem. My biggest problem. My hardest problem. My fear. My downfall. And now, at hitting the 300 lb. mark I can do this no longer. I can not allow this to go on any longer, and it will be very hard, but maybe with your support I can do this.

I am on day EIGHT of this journey. As I started on 2/1/10, and so far, things have been going great. I have controlled my eating (3 meals and 2 snacks a day) to small portions and only healthy foods. I have tried all the fads and ups and downs and it never works forever. I do ok for a while but then wind up back where I started (PLUS SOME). This time it is going to be different! I am taking one day at a time and facing each new day as it comes. I am going to change this time, not just be "on a diet". I need to live the diet, not be on the diet. I have been exercising to, which to me is the main ingredient in weight loss, as long as I stay doing it. Lenny's sister gave me a treadmill, Jen got me an exercise Wii game, and Veronica gave me a copy of the P90X weight loss discs. I also have Jim and Deanna loaning me their home gym whenever I want. I am so lucky to have such great support behind me.

Tomorrow will be the big start to the 90 day P90X Work Out Discs. I am preparing to be really sore. LOL.

Biggest problems so far: Temptation of Course: I have been surrounded by it (as I always will in real life) and so far have been able to resist, even when eating out.

Hopefully you will find this interesting (and I will do my best to keep it interesting) and follow this journey with me. I need help, as I hate to ask for, but I need help. Sometimes I feel like eating is a drug to me, it just tasted so good and I couldn't stop. Here I am 300 lbs. later. I have tried other ways and now I am going to stop trying and do it. I CAN DO IT.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog. Hope you come back.
Love Nanc...
