I start today

So today marks the beginning of my journey. I am the serial dieter you hear about. I have "tried" it all. Weight Watchers, LA Weightloss, Atkins, Nutrisystem you name it, chances are I have done it. The problem is I don't stick to it. There are several excuses, "I don't like the food," "It's not enough food," "I don't have the time" etc. So today I woke up and thought, "Hell lets give it one last go". I am not going to diet at least I'm not going to call it that. Out of all of the diets I have tried Nutrisystem (NS) worked the best. So I am going to restart it for a while and kick up my workouts.

I have gained A LOT of weight over the past 3 months. Its half my fault for making bad food choises and half the fact that I tore my Achilles tendon on January 27, 2007. So I have ben in a cast for the past few months not being too active. The change starts now. Each day I am commited to talk about how I feel, what I ate, and what excesie I did and for how long. I may focus on the how I feel part the most though. That I think is the link between me and food...Emotion. When I am sad, I eat. When I am happy, I eat. When I am nervous, I EAT. Basically whatever the occasion I eat. So, the hope is that I get the emotion out on this blog and not use food to cope.

I am going to upload my starting photo front and side today and give my measurements. After today I will do this every Saturday and hopefully we will see some progress. So here we go.
