I need your help...

Ok...I'm going to put myself out there. I never do this. I hate doing this. I loathe having to tell you. But I need your help...

The plain and simple truth is: I need to lose weight.

The doctor told me I have too. And I could get rid of several ailments if I do. Which means less medications I need to take. Which means Healthier for me. Which means good examples for my children.

But I'm the kinda person that needs to be held accountable when it's stuff for me. For example, once my sessions at the gym were over with the trainer, I stopped going. :o( But when I knew someone was waiting for me and I couldn't flake, I went. :o)

So I am on an energized mission. I am going to do it this time. Which is where I need your help. I need to be held accountable. Soooo...Will you stay on top of me? Bug me with what I have done? Did I workout? Did I eat right? Am I snacking? Bug me. Bug me allot. :o)

I put everyone else first in my life and myself last. And because of that I have let myself go. To the point it has affect my health. So now I have the motivation to put myself first and get healthy. I started my walking again each morning now that the rain has stopped. I walk 2 miles a day. And I have good plans to get up early and get to the gym, I just haven't actually made it yet. ;o)

I started NutriSystem too. My mom was on it last year, and lost 40lbs in 3 months. So i decided to try it. Please keep in mind that I am a vegetarian, and am really picky on what I eat. So the first two meals I tried were flops and went in the garbage. The third was good. I like the breakfast ones the best. They tastes the most "normal". I can't put my finger on it. But the food is made with something not normally in the stores. The lasagna I had the noodles were rubbery and the cheese didn't taste like cheese and the tomato sauce was really thick and left an after taste.

But I'm trying!

So...are you game?

I would be a horrible, horrible dieter, BUT...I love running. And while it's a very difficult exercise choice to get INTO....once you do, it's almost like an addiction. While I know not all people can go straight into running, I encourage you to think about it. A good walk/run regimen could incorporate the kids each and every night, if you like. They could be on bikes, they could be next to you, encouraging you, keeping you company. Just a thought. :)

In the meantime, I'll help prod you along in any way you want!!
