The First Step!

Happy Monday!!!  This is the first day of my new plan.  I need to lose 50 pounds.  It's been said.  Now I need to do it!!  I weighed in, measured and began counting calories.  I feel pretty good.  I have been busy today cleaning.  Usually, because Monday is my day off, I spend the time doing nothing and eating poorly.  Today I decided to try to keep busy and it's working.  Not only do I feel good because I've been eating good, but also I feel good about myself because I am not just sitting around.  :)

This is my starting weight.

Ok...so showing my weight is a big thing for me.  Greg doesn't even know what I weigh, but I think this will help me be accountable.  I need to be honest if this is going to work!!  I am up 15 pounds since Christmas.  I'm not going to lie.  I knew it.  I've been totally out of control eating most of the time.  Trying to watch and then eating everything in sight because that's what I do.  I act like I'm never going to eat it again so I over do it,  No more of that for me!!  I think counting calories will help me with that.  I can have a little treat once in a while and not over do it because I'll just count it and move on :)  That's my hope anyway!!

I have decided to weigh myself every two weeks.  Usually I step on the scale every time I walk into the kitchen, but that is not always a good thing for me.  When I'm up, it gives me an excuse to eat.  So I am going to try giving it to Greg to "hide" for me.  We will see how that goes :)

I will leave you with some pictures of my yard with all the beautiful snow we got last night and today :)

I love the snow....just as long as I have no where to be :)
