This picture is about 50 pounds ago. Geez. Time moves on. Have been overweight so long and don’t want to stay this way. With this crazy COVID I am working at home and my step count has plummeted. I can actually tell I am gaining weight because I am eating way to often. I eat if I am bored or just to snack and isolated, I am bored LOTS. I just feel heavier. Also have a torn meniscus that limits what I can do. Sounds like a lot of excuses but it isn’t, just truth. I really want to make a change and need to start somewhere! That somewhere is HERE and TOMORROW.

My Goals:
My first goal is to make it to tomorrow!

I would like to lose 2 pounds a week...but expect to lose more at first and always get stuck at 11 pounds so passing that is important.

I want to meet my daily step count. Right now that is 5,000 steps. We are in this crazy COVID lockdown and I am working at home. My step count has dropped to nothing.

I want to log ALL my food, the real food, the real amounts.

To add water to my day.

To except NO EXCUSES from myself or others.

My Program:
Food 1200 to 1500 calories a day
I know I need protein or get super tired. Don’t eat nuts.
8 glasses of water. .... this is ambitious for me, I don’t drink water. Does coffee count?

Personal Information:
I live in AZ where it is so hot that this weight should just be dripping off me. Have had a rough couple years. My husband of 40 years died, job change, huge finance change and now with COVID, my 401 is being destroyed. I am alone in this endeavor, live in a rural place, limited to what is around, and have a blown meniscus. I have a treadmill.

Other Information:
Failure is not an option. Who I am to become starts today.
