I went home for the holidays with the intention of eating right and beginning to lose some weight. I did eat. I ate reasonably. I also came down with pneumonia, and that helped me moderate my eating. I lost nine pounds.
I'm still not feeling great, but I plan to use this jump start to keep losing and eating more reasonably than I have in the past. I don't like the physical symptoms I've been experiencing over the last few months, and I suspect they're entirely attributable to excess weight. From this, I perceive I just may be ready to do what it takes to effectively change my lifestyle and attain a healthier body weight.
At the beginning of December, I had a hundred pounds to lose. As of this morning, I have 91 to go. I look forward to continuing the journey with each of you.
