Default I'm New!! 70 pound goal for me

Hi there! Iím new around here and just wanted to introduce myself. Iíve been down this weight-loss/get fit road before and this time around I want it to stick with me a little better than it obviously has the past times. I know what works for me and that is accountability. Itís much easier for me to give in to temptation when I am not doing the food diary or when I donít turn to a support group. So, here I am! I also decided to start a blog to keep track of myself and put myself out there even more for the world to see. After reading other peopleís blogs, it seems like it helped them get through those rough days and feel even better about the good ones. Iím not sure if I am allowed to plug my blog, but I put it at the end of my signature on here. (and if anybody else on here has one, send it my way, I would love to read it!) Itís only been a week since I decided to get serious about this again and all has gone well, but I know it is just the beginning. My main goal is to lose 70 pounds, my mini goal would be 40. For me it is better to have the big picture instead of small goals (like a pound or two at a time), so that is why I keep the big number in mind. Anyways, I hope to be able to spend a lot of time around here, learning from everybody else and seeing the rewards getting healthy can bring us all.

Default On the journey, too.

I have been up and down the yo yo my entire life and now have reached the biggest weight of my life...even more than my biggest pregnancy. I am 5'4'' and have 97 pounds to lose. I have been doing fitday.com for 1 week and zumba as much as I can and have lost 2 inches from my belly and 4 pounds! I could never have done it without fitday! I journal everyday and am on the food page 6 times a day! I am so excited for you and hope that you stay with it!
