My Weight Loss Journey

I am going to be brutally honest here, at the risk of embarrassing myself. I have struggled with fluctuating weight for years. I have tried many diets, most of them fads, and have not stuck to any of them for long. Well, this time I am serious. My weight is beginning to effect my health and this time I am not only losing weight for myself but for my family as well.I have the support of my husband as he is taking the journey with me. That will be a big help! I will be journaling my progress here and would love to read your encouraging comments. I would appreciate and covet your prayer as we dive head first into this journey.

My immediate goal is to lose 13 pounds in the first 2 weeks(as predicted in the plan we are following) and then 2-3 pounds each additional week. My short term goal is to have lost 37-40 pounds by the first week of April (which is my birthday, and yes, I will celebrate in a big way!)

Love to all! And I look forward to taking this journey with you. If any of you are inspired to join me on this challenge, let me know as I would love to do this together!

Sarah!! I am so excited that you want to do it with me! I will be following the South Beach Diet, The Delicious, Doctor-Designed, Foolproof Plan for Fast and Healthy Weight Loss. The author of the plan is Dr. Arthur Agatston. If you get the book it offers meal plans too. But it is possible to follow the plan without using every recipe. That is what I will be doing as some of the recipes are very costly.
