As the title says - this is a new beginning - for me, my weight loss journey and my endeavour to get healthy.
It has been a hectic year this year - we have had lots on the go and needless to say, my health and weight have taken a back seat - totally my own fault but now I have to make a decision on what I am going to do - am I going to continue on the path that I am on - the road to self destruction or am I going to do something positive about it and LOSE THIS WEIGHT AND GET HEALTHY !
I have decided to go with the second option - at this stage I am going to try to do it with the help of Dr Phil (the source of my blog title). I have bought his weight loss book off e-bay and I have a slightly used journal which I am going to use and I am going to give this a go.
I thought that seeing as I was no longer working I would be eating more but I have hardly had a chance to sit down in the week that I have been off (who said Mom's who don't work sit around all day doing nothing ??????). Which leads me to the first problem I have come across - when I don't plan any meals during the day at all - it is too easy to buy something quickly on the run and generally, those are not good options. While I am trying to do this a bit at a time, I think that if I can get through this week without doing too much more damage to myself, I can try to plan next week a little better. It should be easier - no school and K at home to help motivate me.
On that note I am off to do some work with Dr Phil and see what he has to say to me.
Thought for the Day : Most people are as happy as they make their minds up to be
