Welcome

Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

Tamzins Double Dog Dare You Ticker!

My homage to the 14lbs that I lost on Allan’s DDDY Challenges. A watering can for the vast oceans of water that I have learned to drink and love every day.

Twas good! Got off an hour early from work today, and headed to the gym. Walked home 1.5km. I need to start doing more stretching. I'm pretty sure that if I hadn't been poked about my goals that I would have skipped this one for an early night home. But its a good feeling, that warmth...I think tomorrow I'm going to be sore. All the better to drink MORE water. I <3 you DOMS.

Good on you for getting started.
It's never too late to take control of your life and your waist.

You and I have a similar build. My highest weight is where you are currently. As of today I'm 39 pounds lighter.

I have found that logging my food is a HUGE help. Both in being able to see what it is I'm putting in my body and as a reminder that anything I eat wont be a secret.

I use calorieking.com and love it - a free site I used to use is fitday.com - it's not as flashy but does a great job.

I understand what you mean about it being not only a physical thing. I think the mental side is of the greatest importance.
This book and work book have been a great source for me beckdietsolution.com - I can't say enough nice things about it.

Good luck on your journey.
You can do this!!
