Where to start???

Well, I decided to start this blog about 2 things in my life that I love and hate. I love cooking, traveling the roads on my motorcycle throughout the Eastern Canada/United States region and traveling. What do i hate? I hate how overweight I am. I am 51 years old and finally this year, I have decided to do something about it. I joined Weight Watchers on January 6, 2010. I weighed 304 pounds! Even I never thought I was that heavy! I was, and still am, disgusted with myself. How did I get here? Well, that's part of what i will be exploring with this blog. So, I am starting out on another journey. This time however, it will not be bike travels on twisty roads, with the wind in my face and pure joy and excitement but rather a road that will be much harder to travel, but hopefully with rewards and accomplishments along the way. So, I am starting this blog a bit late but better late than never. Plus, I am at the point where I have been successful so far but am in need of a little more motivation. I say more motivation because, well, I guess I should have enough motivations already (and I will list them in a later post) but I guess I am feeling a bit stagnat.

Well, after a not so great week, I did manage to lose 1 pound. How I did that I'm not sure. Must be the walking! My weakness....peanut butter. I love it on Caramel Chocolate Chip Rice Cakes. So, what happens is I get home famished, and snack. I know I shouldn't but I can't seem to stop myself. Then I hate myself and so I have another one! It's a vicious cycle I have been doing my whole life. I have to learn a way to control this. Or I'll be unhealthy, unhappy and fighting with this forever.

Any ideas????

  1. You're still just starting out hon, easiest way to end it? Get rid of it! It's not all that unhealthy a snack in theory, but I know that circle. I've guiltily eaten my way through ice cream, nachos, granola bars, etc in a single night. If it's not in the house, it's not an option.
