So is today the day or am I going to blow it again?
Sorry to be such a Debbie Downer
Keep your chin up! It is a marathon - not a sprint. Every day is a fresh start.
I'm 41 and getting back in better shape after some ups and downs myself. It is harder as you get older - that is the truth! If you are young - make the effort to get to a healthy weight now (While you still can!!) and keep it that way.
I've only been on this site for one week. A trainer recommended it. I was stuck at 150 despite 6 days a week at the gym and depriving myself of all the things I really like to eat. Logging my food has opened my eyes to the fact that I was eating too LITTLE each day - and the wrong things - and not drinking enough water. I ate more over the last week (protein, of course!) drank more water, and finally broke the barrier. I want to be fit and firm - and weigh what my driver's license says I do - that's all.
Fifteen pounds - 2 clothing sizes - is totally do-able by summer. Why not start today? You will feel great and what a wonderful way to greet the warmer weather?!?!
I've never posted before but noticed your post as I drank my protein shake (Yum!) and looked around at what this site has to offer other than the food log. I hope you'll write back and say you're making good choices.
Nothing tastes as good as skinny (and healthy!) feels. : )
