A new day a new start

Hello long forgotten blog and weight loss.  Here's a picture of my son and his gorgeous fiance Rachel .  Once again I've let myself down by being lazy, and self-indulgent and now I only have about 3 months left till the big event.

Do I really think that I can drop a significant weight loss in that short time?  Of course I want to, wish to, desire to, hope to and if I could throw pixie dust in the air and make it happen would do.

I know I am an emotional eater and I stay up way to late at night.  I need to get to bed earlier so I'll stop eating my weigh up the scale.  I do fine during the day but I tend to graze all night (Moo!)  I need to stop that immediately.  I could go to bed the same time my hubby does but he is in bed most nights by 9:30.  When I go to bed earlier I wake up earlier....I guess I could start my day at 4 am but that makes for a very long day.

I did do some positive steps today.

1. I weighed myself. (shock to the system!)
2.  I started writing down every thing that goes in my mouth.
3.  I bought only healthy food at the store.
4.  I made Mr. Wonderful take his snacks downstairs and hide them in the man cave.
5.  I asked a friend to mentor me and hold me accountable on a weekly basis.
6.  I blew off the dust on my weight loss blog and started again.
7.  I made cabbage soup (broth based veggies to help curb my appetite ).
8.  I cut up small containers of celery, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, and zucchini to snack on.
9.  I cubed a watermelon into bite size pieces to snack on.
10.  I told myself to go to bed earlier tonight.

So I'm all prayed up and starting over again.  Wish me luck I'm on my weigh!
