20 POUNDS or BUST!!!!

Okay! Here I go-bearing my soul and hopefully doing some good for myself! I have gained weight! THERE! I said it! This year has been quite the roller coaster of things happening with my family and let's face it...I EAT my feelings! With that being said-it is no excuse and I am ashamed that I worked so hard to get to my goal (the summer of 07) and am now 20 lbs heavier within 18 months!!! And...I didn't have a baby! So, I have decided that I want to announce that I am starting to DIET on my blog so that I have some sort of accountability. We will see if it works! I will give all of you weekly updates and report my progress. I do know that all of you may not care to read about this. I have always said that my blog is more for me than for any of you-but I do know that some of you read it!! I may do a great job, I may fail-but all of you will know either way! I know that most of you reading this struggle with this issue also and I know that you know how frustrating this is. I hate to focus on it and this may not be my last diet ever-but I have been feeling that this is important in the past few weeks (mainly because I can't fit into any of my pants for Winter!). I don't feel that I am HUGE, but I wouldn't mind fitting in my pants again. I am too cheap to purchase new pants and so all of you that see me frequently enough-please forgive me for wearing the same three pair everyday! SO....Wish me Luck and hopefully this will be an enjoyable journey!!!

You should have one of those counter things on your website that tracks how much weight you lose - like the baby counter thing...

I would be more then happy to help and join in. I too wear the same 2 pairs of pants every day and yes I just had a baby, but I want to get rid of the weight from my first baby who is now almost 5 years old. 20Lb. lighter here I come. (or so I hope)

Good luck and don't take yourself too seriously!! There will be some bad days, but perseverance is the key!

Best of Luck!!! I've been doing a modified "Walk Into Weightloss" and have lost 15 lbs with 5 to go. i still have only a few pairs of pants to wear but that is because I hate to shop and am thrifty as well.
