Yesterday my neice got engaged!! We are all so excited for her. She will probably be getting married in December. This is such an exciting time for her and for all of us as well. This is also a great motivation for me. For a long time now I've been saying that I'll start my diet after such and such a date, or on Monday, or blah, blah, blah. Now, I HAVE to do it. I need to lose about 50 lbs., but if I could lose 20 by her wedding I would be so so happy. So, today I've begun. I know I can do this if I really try. I don't know why I've had such a hard time starting, but now I'll do it. I'm tired of the way I look and the way I feel about myself. I know things need to change, and that I'm the only one who can make those changes. So, here goes.
