Its My Year

Its the first day of 2009 and boy am I ready to get the show on the road. I weighed in at 176.4 this morning. My goal is to get down to 130 by my 30th birthday which is May 29th. I think my goal is pretty darn achievable. But with 4 small children under the age of 7, as well as a household to maintain and a hubby, things can easily fall off track as some of you can attest. I plan to start exercising on Monday. I'm a planner so I have to write out my exercise routine so that I won't get bored with and throw in the towel before I actually get going with any sort of progress.

It kind of bites me in the butt being a great cook. I was born and raised in New Orleans which is known for its rich food and love of fattening ingredients so cooking low-fat is something that I am not use to one bit. Thats going to be a huge challenge for me.

If I can give birth to four children, I'm pretty sure I'll figure out this weight loss thing again:)

You can totally do this girl! Losing weight can't possibly be as difficult as being pregnant with, giving birth to, and parenting four small children!

You can do it, Dee!

And for the record, cooking low fat isn't easy no matter what food culture you are accustomed to. However, having lived in Louisiana for a few months, I recognise that it is probably even harder for y'all. :)

It is obvious, by your posts, that you are an intelligent, determined young will be our inspiration this year, I know it!

I just ate some Zatarain's red bean and rice with turkey keilbasa, does that count as Louisanna cooking??

You can TOTALLY make your goal~ Good luck! I'm rooting for you! And tomorrow is YOUR DAY for starting your exercise- how exciting!!!
