I've heard for many years that a key to success in weight loss is to keep a diary, journal, whatever you want to call it...you know, something to hold yourself accountable. My plan is to write down my ups and downs, log my calories, exersize...all of it. I need to see it in black and white and maybe, just maybe it'll keep someone else motivated too! I really want to encourage anyone who reads this to share their struggles, stories, motivations. Share it all with me...because I'm going to need all the help I can get. My goal is to lose a significant amount of weight by my birthday. As of today I have 4 months and 9 days. That means I hope to be down 40 lbs by my birthday. I know it's a lofty goal, but I believe I can do it. Tomorrow I start calorie counting, and a strict workout schedule. For the first time in a long time, I'm going to have faith in myself.
