So here we are....

It's 2012.

It's time to wake up and smell the coffee.

I've tried and failed at this several times now, but this time, I'm gonna make it.  I'm tired of failing.  I'm tired of being tired.  I'm tired of watching life pass me by.

This is going to be my blog about my weight loss journey.

Back in July, my daugther and I got a gym membership.  I lost 20% body fat since then.  I still have a lot of weight to lose - the title of this blog is what I currently weigh.  I want to get down to about 160-150lbs.  Anything less than that, and I look anorexic.  The lowest I have ever been that I can remember is 150 and that was before my daugther was born in 1993.

I started a sewing blog and have met many WONDERFUL people out here in the blogosphere since then. I am hoping to make some weight-loss, healthy cooking, 5k running blog friends too.

The plan for today:

Breakfast - 2 hard-boiled eggs, banana
Lunch - Lean Cuisine Sesame Chicken
Snack 1 - baby carrots and hummus
Snack 2 - 100 calorie bag of popcorn
Dinner - still up in the air - I'll update that later

Going to the gym this evening for Zumba.  I went after work on Tuesday and it was AWEFUL!!!  All the OMG-i-made-a-resolution-and-have-to-go-to-the-gym-for-the-next-2-weeks-then-quit people were there.  Wednesday I got up at 4am and was there by 5am....much better.  But, I'll be darned if I'm gonna let them make me miss my Zumba class!!

Please feel free to comment or add yourself....I look forward to new friends :)
