Day 2: The Long Haul

March 21, 2010

I like how I am approaching this totally differently. I am not putting up all of these expectations of myself and expecting immediate results. What I am doing is just holding myself accountable and not giving in. I am doing it for as long as it takes….the long haul. And it will surely be a long haul.

But I am not thinking about that so much. I am not worried about December 2010. I am worried about this week. I am worried about now. I approached it all wrong in the past, hence the reason(s) I failed consistently to stick with it. It would become overwhelming….I would find comfort in the bad things….and then, I’d fall off the wagon.

I have accepted who I am at this very moment. I’m heavier than I should be…so be it. I know that if I work hard and stay consistent….that will be temporary. One day at a time. No more than that.

I’ll post later today about how the day goes!

Thanks for checking in!

Pre-Day 1

March 20, 2010

This is a start. The beginning. I am starting anew. I have much to gain….much to lose. Saturday, March 20, 2010….the beginning of the new me.

I will gain everything. I will lose what’s necessary to lose. I will be realistic but hopeful…cautionary yet on the edge…strict yet liberal…an education on balance will emerge…for good.

This is it.

I will be posting my first update today. My stats will be in the sidebar. Expect honesty. Blunt honesty. Success and failure for all to see….because, in the end, there will be a person I have not been able to be as of yet.

Thanks for checking in.
