Out of the closet....

One of the surest ways of staying focused on a weight loss plan is to have accountability, right? Well, I have officially opened the closet doors on my journey! Yes, I have had this blog for almost 2 years now, but most people who follow this blog don't "know" me in real life. So, since I am an avid Facebooker, I have "outed" myself on Facebook. I created a "fan" page and am planning on letting all of my friends and family on there support me on this journey. 2010 is the year for me to be thin! I am no longer in the closet... I am recruiting help and support wherever I can get it!

It's funny, but almost immediately after I published that page and posted my plan and goal, I panicked a little.... Now almost everywhere I go and everyone I am in contact with "knows"... "Knows" I am trying to lose weight. "Knows" that I take a supplement to control my appetite. "Knows" that I struggle and am unhappy about the way I look. It's no longer a secret. But honestly, I think that is a good thing, right? The more people that know, the more people that can hold me accountable. And, the more determined I will be not to fail in front of all my friends and family... Publicly. On Facebook...

This is my plan to get back on track:

1. Get back on my supplement program and don't miss a dose!!!
2. Start drinking at least 100 oz. of water per day.
3. Eliminate sugar from my diet.
4. Start eliminating caffeine from my diet.
5. Eat clean - no processed foods and organic whenever possible.
6. 30 - 45 minutes of exercise at least 5 times per week.
7. Plan and prepare!!!!

When I followed this regimen back in the spring/summer, I lost weight. I just have to start focusing on ME again! I know I can do this! Time to make it happen!
