I am back!

So in a completely random turn of events, I decided to come back to this blog and write about this new weight loss journey I am going to tackle.  Since my last post here more than 2 years ago, life has taken on a whole new look.  I have been separated, divorced, begun working full time and the one that leads me here today, gained about 15 pounds.  Now, those 15 pounds were on top of my post-pregnancy weight that was about 20 pounds higher than I wanted to be.  So, here I am today, confessing to you that I would really love to lose about 40 pounds.  I am no longer healthy and it is time for a change.

I have had every excuse as to why I wasn't ready to tackle this journey yet.  The Racer and I decided today that if we didn't just do it, ready or not, we may never.  There will always be an excuse.  I have lived enough life over the past 5 years or so to know that there will always be another stressor that I can emotionally eat my way through.  It is time to stop: time to break the cycle!

Here are my goals:

*Post my weight each week.
*Eat within 24 daily points allowing myself the 35 extra weekly points when necessary.
*Track daily points and journal what I eat.
*Work my way up to drinking 10 glasses of water per day.  (This will take a while.)

I am ready to tackle this and I need the accountability in posting it here.
