Weight loss is a bitch…

Yes, that is mine and Joe's scale. And hell no, I'm not telling you how much I weigh.

No really, it is.

As many of you know, I struggle with my weight. Its been an ongoing problem for pretty much most of my adult life. There are two reasons for this problem, both 100% my fault:

1. I LOVE TO EAT. I love all kinds of food, and so long as its dead when it gets to my plate, I’ll try most anything at least once. And 9 times out of 10, I love it and will eat it again, and again, and again, and… well you get the point. I love food, and I have a hard time walking away from it.

2. I’m pretty damn sedentary. I sit in front of a computer for most of the day, with little in the way of exercise. If I said I’ve been working on this, I’d be lying. I keep saying I’m going to get in an exercise routine, but it just hasn’t happened.

On the good news side of things, I’ve managed to lose over 10 pounds since I started dieting, and I have to say, I feel wonderful. I found a WEBSITE that helps me track what I’m eating throughout the day, and how much exercise I’ve been getting in. I’ve joined a community of women who are trying to lose a large amount of weight, and the support has been wonderful. I have to say, it’s all about having a support system. Since I started the group, I’ve been drinking more water, which is making me have to pee every 10 minutes, but I FEEL better. I have more energy, which helps me get through the day without napping, and I don’t get nearly as many headaches.

I’ve also been eating breakfast on a pretty regular basis, but I’ve fallen off the wagon the last few days. My challenge is Joe’s day’s off when I don’t have to be up right away. I didn’t do so well this week, but I’m going to try to change that next week. We’ll see how that goes.

I could really use the support of my readers, so if you’d be so kind as to leave some encouragement in the form of your weight loss story (if you have one) or the struggles you’ve endured in trying to lose weight, I’d really appreciate it.
