I've been thinking about starting on a diet. However, I know I would only be fooling myself if I thought now was a good time to start.
I'm tired of my clothes not fitting and not wanting to buy any bigger sizes. I'm tired of my knees, feet and back hurting. I'm tired of taking medicine every day for high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
So, I'm making my plans to start a diet, not only to lose weight but to get healthy. Come January 2009 I'm going to take hold of my own destiny and do something about the way I look and feel.
They say it's better to go on a diet with someone you know. That way when you start to get down and ready to toss the towel in you can help each other stay on your plan. Strength lies in numbers.
That brings me to the reason I'm posting about this today. I was wondering if anyone else would like to join me. We can all post about tips, tricks and ideas. We can share recipes, losses and even hardships. We can all cheer each other on. We can pick each other up when we need it and set goals to reach together.
I am going to post every Wed. I know that is a strange day but I figure it's in the middle of the week and would be a good time. We can discuss weigh ins, mini goals, success stories and hardships.
No one has to post your weight, unless you want to. You don't even have to say how much or if you loss. This is a program to use as much and how you want. There won't be any set "diet" you have to follow. You can do what I'm going to do or do what you like.
I will share my plan with you. However, since I'm a vegetarian I doubt if most of you will want to follow what I do.
I will set weekly goals for exercise, drinking water, eating properly. Again, you can choose to follow what I do or follow your own plan.
I just ask that if you do want to do this as a group that we all remain up beat and positive. Please remember that everyone has different goals and their way may not be what you choose to do. If you disagree with what someone is doing please do not put anyone down. We are here to help each other not hurt any one.
So what do you say? Do I have any takers who wish to sign up? I will officially be starting this on 1/5/09 but will not post about it until 1/7/09 as that will be the first Wed.
Let me know if you are interested and if so, do you want to give our group a name?
