Almost a full year now!

Good morning! And welcome to my third entry of the new year! :-)
I've been writing a little less frequently, but that will change... soon! I was afraid after Christmas that my weight would be up a bit, and it was. I've been a little too complacent with my calorie counting, and the scale is giving me a warning. This morning, I was 182. Ugh. Just goes to show you what a couple days of inactivity can do to your maintaining routine.
Today marks the two week countdown to a full year of eating right, and working at this life-long new healthy lifestyle. I started this diet for myself on February 2, 2010. And to date, the lowest I've been is 173. Holidays and inactivity have edged me back up to my current 182, but I'm not concerned. I know what it takes to get back down, and I'm willing to buckle down and get 'er done!
I was watching a new show on MTV the other night, called, "I Used To Be Fat." The young girl on that show started at a weight of 240, and with a trainer's help, lost 80 lbs in about as many days. It just goes to show you, that if you are physically able to at least walk, then you can get healthy. Lower calories, smaller portions, and a small amount of movement will get your weight down. The more exercise you can squeeze into your schedule, the more of a calorie deficit you will create, making the weight come off faster. It's just simple math. :-)
Starting today, I'll start posting my weight more often... and give more updates on my exercise. My mother calls my blog "a good watchdog", and she's right. It keeps me honest, and like a watchdog, keeps me away from the fridge. :-)
