Let's Try This Again

So, I apparently I am destined to make the same mistakes over and over (and over!) again.  My weight has yo-yoed up and down pretty significantly over the past few years.  I have definitely been on an upswing for quite a while now.  I am climbing (very slowly, kicking and screaming) back onto the "I have to lose weight" bandwagon. Tomorrow the "diet" begins..  I start again tomorrow.   

See that number up there?  That number up there that is hidden?  Yeah, me neither....I don't even know what it is.  I can't face it, YET.  But tomorrow morning... oh, tomorrow morning is going to be bad.  I kinda, sorta know how bad "bad" is going to be, but once I look at the real numbers, the reality slap is going to be painful.

My plan?  I guess it's a pretty simple one.  My treadmill FINALLY (hopefully!) arrives tomorrow.  It should be here when I get home from work.  The plan is to USE IT.  Everyday.  Even if it's just for a short time.  Then there's the eating part.  Welcome back Body for Life for Women.  I can't say I love doing the program (after all, if I loved it, I would have stayed on it after I lost weight "last time"), but I don't hate it.  The eating part is not the issue.  The recommended food is what we normally eat, just eaten in a different way.  It's the work involved with getting everything ready to eat that kills me.  I am lazy about breakfasts and lunches.  Whatever I can throw in my bag on the way out the door is what I eat when I am at work.  Sometimes Rarely is it healthy and conducive to weight lose.  So today, in preparation for my big Life Style Change, I have readied an entire week's worth of breakfasts and lunches.  Yay!  Go Me!! 

I'm hoping that will help.  We'll see.  If not.... Omar had better start makes bigger tents.  I'm going to need one.
