I wish I could tell you that this is the first time that I have ever started a diet. It would be so nice to ponder what dieting (OOPS! New Life Style Dining or whatever) will be like. It should be simple. I bought a book called "Eat to Live" by Joel Fuhrman. His philosophy is bring on the lettuce. If it's a vegetable and is green, then I may eat as much of it as I want. I should even throw in fresh fruit, a few nuts, and I will be able to eat to my heart's content. I joined a gym, so I'm set. This should be easy. True? I know what to eat and I've arranged to exercise, so this will be a success. I'll be featured in some magazine as a success story.
I will do it. I have to lose those 70 pounds. I'm so sick of looking like this. I can't believe I let myself get this big. I can't bear to look in the mirror or go into a dressing room. I totally made a mess of things.
