I cannot believe it has only been one day since I posted about starting this new plan and being strict about it for my "one last shot" at this. Somehow, days starting a new eating/exercise plan seem kind of long at first, until I get into the swing of things. So far, so good, although I have been hungry a few times and got a sugar withdrawal headache today.

I am planning a nighttime snack of either a string cheese or some roast beef for under 100 calories and no carbs. That will put me closer to 1200 calories.
I am drinking 10+ cups of water per day. One day I biked ten minutes and the other I walked 20-25 minutes. Feeling good so far and hoping I am able to stick to this for the month... AND see results.
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
