Bit the bullet and got on the scale last night and though I am not pleased I am relieved to see I only gained 5 pounds from all the holiday eating. Time to get back on track now. I have two partners in crime to work together with on the get healthy goal and I have another friend who has lost a lot of weight and is a great inspiration at her dedication to healthy eating. (I need her to rub some of that dedication, willpower and motivation off on me.) I am not setting a specific weight loss number or a goal weight. I just want to feel good, be more flexible and be happy within my own skin. A number is just that..a number. My personal happiness with myself is what matters the most...loving myself (or at least liking myself). Lets do this!
