I have been inspired the last few months by a blogger who has written about her weight loss journey and as I read it I thought, "I'm not going to write about that! Way too personal!"
But, as I read about Earl-Leigh's transformation I realized that maybe, I could do it, too. Not write about it, but actually making the changes that are so necessary.
And then, something changed in me. I've changed my eating habits, started a workout program, and I have gotten a few reviews that are weight loss oriented. I even won a basket at auction for healthy living filled with work out stuff, beauty products, and a free month at a 30 minute, ladies gym.
Its as if the universe is saying - "Hey, fattie! Get off the couch!"
So here I am, only two weeks in and sharing way more about my issues with weight than I have in the four years I have been blogging.
I am a binge eater. I don't purge. I have an appetite of pregnant me. I am not pregnant. Obesity runs in my family. I can go years eating right and exercising, just to get comfortable, slack off, gain weight, and start the process all over again. I am at the start of the process.
Since I am quickly approaching the big 4-0, this has to stick now. I am making an action plan and sharing it with the world wide web.

Be accountableI am doing this in three ways. My husband who is my partner in this, fatsecret.com, and posting this action plan here on my blog. I may check in from time to time but more likely it will be on twitter or facebook but especially fatsecret. That is where I log my food and now that I have my fabulous new scale, I keep track of my weight.
Plan my mealsI usually take my lunch to work but now they are healthier meals with lots of fruits, veggies and healthy snacks.
Drink more waterI have cut out soda from my diet which was surprisingly easy and trying yo drink more water than coffee.
Move, move, moveI have a job that keeps me on my ass but it does not have to be all day. I need to get out of the office in addition to working out to my infomercial workout program every morning.
Control my appetiteI am hungry all. of. the. time. When I saw an opportunity to review Skinny Burn - appetite suppressant supplement for women I figured I would have nothing to lose. I was expecting for it to not work. I really was, especially after I saw the low calorie challenge diet menu that is included. Of course you would lose weight, you are eating nothing substantial. I was getting hangry just reading it. I knew I was not going to do the challenge. I would stick to counting my calories and logging my food on fatsecret.
It has been a week now and I am not hungry, nor angry. I have stayed under my calorie allotment and I am not hungry (that is worth mentioning several times). Not hungry or angry. Not to mention, the pills smell sort of nice. They are big but no awful aftertaste I expect from these things. The even smell like raspberries.
I have spend hundreds of dollars on doctors appointments and supplements over the last ten years trying to find something that will take my constant hunger away and I think I may have found it.
I won't make a claim that the weight I've lost using these are solely because I started taking Skinny Burn. I have been counting calories and working out and, I am not hungry. Not hungry! They also did not make me jittery. I am a coffee drinker, an all day coffee drinker, but I take two capsules first thing in the morning with a great big glass of water and have my first cup of about 9:00 AM. No headache and no jitters, just blissfully not hungry.
How do you keep from being hungry or hangry?
