Whatever happens don't give up!!  There will always be days when you think, it's impossible, I can't make it... but all you need to do is just look yourself in your own eyes and say, I CAN DO IT!!

Good luck!! I look forward to seeing updates!

I have the flu!!!  I am trying to still eat right and count my calories and fats.  But I am so sick I cannot get outside for my mile or 2 walks and my head hurts so bad i cant jump around.  Ive gotten on the scale and its still the same as before so at least im not gaining.  As soon as I am feeling better i will get back on the ball but this flu sucks!

Thank you all For your support!  I lost one more pound im at 301 now and thats without execising cause ive had the flu.  Im still eating right counting calories and fats and drinking lots of watere.  Ive noticed that whewn you eat what you are supposed to there seems to be to much food.  I am getting fuller faster.  I wonder if its all the water I have been drinking?  I am drinking about a gallon a day.So in the last 20 days I have lost a total of 10 pounds.  I get frusterated casue I want it to be more but at least I know that I am doing it the healthy way and changing my lifestyle for good will change me forever.  I can say I will never weigh that much again ever.  I Start back to walking today and wil take it slow since im still recovering.  But i need to be active and I miss my time to myself. Again thank you all for your support I need it!
