Day 1: 206.5

Yes, I slid my feet onto that evil thing lurking in the bathroom this morning. Not as bad a gain as I had thought. Only 1.5 pounds. But like Christine says.. its takes a day to gain 5 lbs and 3 weeks to lose it!! I am hoping to at least be back down to 205 by my weigh in on the 24th. I am feeling pretty good about this though. I ate healthy yesterday...hit just under 1500 calories! Todays goal is to find a niche to put my treadmill in so that I can start running again.

I have to say a big THANK YOU to Laura over at Life of L. She is only 11 lbs from reaching her goal... and she is such an inspiration. Go over and give her some love.. she is awsome!! (Thanks for the advice Laura, always very much appreciated!!)

So today is my Day 1... (another thing I have adopted from Life of L) and my starting weight is 206.5. As I figure, I have about 180 days (6 months) to kick butt and reach goal. That will bring me to April. That is a big month for me. I will be turning 30 on the 25th of April. I dont see myself as a 30 year old, although some days I feel 50. I actually feel pretty good about turning 30.. at least mentally I do. But physically, well, who wants to turn another decade older being fat? Not me! Damn it, I am a mother of two (and will not be adding to that number... EVER), I have a good looking husband who deserves a beautiful wife at his side.. and I am not going to be a fat 30. Ok, so now that that is settled... lets get with it.

See you tomorrow!

Good luck with your weightloss! We should both reach goal at around the same time. I am scheduled to reach mine around april/may time too:)

Everyone needs to give themselves a Day 1. Glad you had a great day today - make it another tomorrow.

Take care.
