Starting weight

Well, I made the plunge and weighed myself.

Could be worse, but WILL be better...soon.

I'm finding the 75 pounds to go! ticker at the top of the page imposing, so I'm going to change my goal to only losing 10 pounds.  And when I reach that, I'll set it for another 10 pounds and so on.  Much more manageable I think.

Starting over

I can't believe that the last time I blogged here was May.  Not much has happened since then, other then I fell off the dieting wagon!

But I have been inspired anew!  A friend of mine has started a new blog and is having similar struggles. 
With arms open wide.  I'm going to try and keep pace with her, and hopefully we can help each other.

So, today I started tracking my food/calories again.  This one is important for me, as I lose track of what I've eaten and how quickly it adds up if I don't track it. I'm back working in the office too, so this will help, as my lunch is pre-packed (I love Hilary!) and if I don't take any money with me, then I can't buy any more food! Win-Win.

The biggest thing I need to work on is exercise.  Being sick right now with a bad sinus cold, I'm not really feeling inspired to get out there and get moving.  But my commitment  for this week is to take the stairs at work up the 2 flights everyday.  At least it's a start.

So here we go..... back on the wagon and riding off into the sunset!
