So I have lost 5.6 lbs in the last 3 weeks.  I am happy with this but I know I could have done better.  I had a week and a half where I didn't eat the food I was suppose to and didn't really exercise.  I am now back on track and have exercised the past three days.  I feel better when I get moving and I find that I don't snack.  When I don't stay busy that is when I find a bag of something in my hand and before I notice I have eaten it all.  Not something I am proud of but something that I am working on correcting for myself.  I need to start eating healthier snacks and when I treat myself it doesn't have to be some sort of junk food and at lest not too much of it. 

I am going to get back into shape and be healthy for my family.  I am not happy with the way that I look and I know that I can do this.  I don't have to be in a size zero to be happy but to feel good in my own skin and to feel good about myself and to be able to exercise without feeling like I am going to die after only 2 minutes.  I am ashamed at how I have let myself become.

However this is a new year and a chance to change all that.  Not just for this year I am not doing a New Years Resolution.  I am doing a New Me Resolution for Life.  Non of this for only the year but for ever it is going to be a life style not a diet.  I know I can do this.  I was once there and so I know that it is possible.
