Before the holidays there was talk about forming a diet support group at work to help keep each other accountable and on track. Evidently I have been drafted as the de facto leader. I have to go check out SparkPeople and see what they offer for groups. Someone had mentioned that you can weigh in and only have your percentage of loss be visible vs. your weight and I guess that is okay for the folks not ready to be 100% honest of where they are at. I'm also going to set up a group on DailyMile so those of us more into fitness can log our exercise and support each other.
Food was good today. I need to hit Central Market to stock up and try to stick closer to the packets that Allan sent. Yet with what I have on hand I am doing well keeping within 1200 calories.
Speaking of Allan, I saw that I have an award as being one of the top losers on the first 3 phases of the DDDYC. This is an award that I love because I worked for that one. I had to turn down the holiday treats that were all around me and focus on what I really wanted - to reach goal weight and start in on the other goals I have that aren't related to weight loss.
If you are struggling and really want to stop the excuses and lose the weight for good you should definitely make Allan's blog a daily read. He takes this weight loss business seriously. He doesn't sugar coat the truth. He doesn't engage in in bullshit. He spells it out for you in cold, hard detail. Is it hard work? Yes! Is it worth it? Yes! Ultimately you have to pick what you want more - to STAY fat or get real and claim the life you want.
