And so it begins...

I stepped on the scale a few days ago and when I looked down at the numbers looking up at me, I wanted to cry. I have never been this heavy. Not when I was pregnant with my youngest daughter and as big (if not bigger than) as a house. I decided right then and there that I am going to take back control of my weight. I've done it before, and I can do it again.
My son bought an eliptical machine a week or so ago and I will be using that daily. I am also going to try to do The Couch to 5K. I haven't ran since I was a kid. But I am determined. I will also watch my eating habits. I do eat fairly healthy, although I must admit I am a chocoholic. If I am sad, happy, bored, tired, lonely, mad... I go for the chocolate. Its my comfort food. It always makes me feel happy.. even if only for a few min.
My youngest daughter is on a 1 month trial of not drinking milk, or using any milk products. So right now there will be no chocolate in the house. No ice cream, no pudding, no mashed potatoes, no cheese...
I tried to create this blog a few days ago, but I didn't have any luck. I'm not sure what I was doing wrong, but I have figured it out and can now start blogging! Wish me luck on my journey!!
