Preparation

I am going to go on a diet.  I want to lost 40 pounds.  My mom is going to join me on this journey.  We both want to lose 7 pounds by christmas.  That's the first goal.

I'm going to record my journey here on a blog...because I think that will help my stick with it.  Making myself write down every calorie I consume for the world to see MIGHT just help me be more conscious of those calories as I'm consuming them.

Today, I am eating like normal, so I can get an idea of how many calories I consume on a typical day.  Tomorrow starts the diet.  For real.

These are the things I am pledging to myself, and to you, internet, that I am going to do.
  • I will eat no more than 1500 calories in a day
  • I will weigh myself every morning
  • I will measure my waist every week
  • I will update the calories I've eaten on this blog every day.
  • I will put up pictures of me in a bathing suit for every 5 pounds I lose.
 So follow along for my weight loss journey.

....or don't.   It's up to you.

For this blog, I find that I don't care who reads it.  Because I'm doing this for me.

Wish me luck!

Catherine
