The reality is I am overweight.  That's not insecurity, that's not self-esteem.  It's the truth.  In order for me to be comfortable and healthy, it's going to take a lot of work.  Therefore, a new lifestyle needs to be managed.  I figure, I sit at the office for 11 hours a day.  I have to workout at least an hour everyday to kill 1-3 pounds/week.  I then have to eat less; 1200 calorie intake?  Possibly. 

They say it takes 2 weeks for something to become a habit.  I hope this is true.  I need to change my life, my attitude...everything. 

My goal is to be at my goal weight before I'm 30.  I know I said 40 pounds in 90 days..but I also need to maintain.  If I can maintain the weight for a year and a half - then I'm solid. 

I've been researching weight loss, and they all say the same thing - but it's good to read up on it for ideas on workouts, meal plans, and healthy tips.  I want to make sure that I am taking as much information in to be educated on the subject and keep myself occupied. 

I have to admit, I am really sad that I let myself go, but I have no one to blame but myself.  I can't wait to look in the mirror and be happy with what I look like.  Let the journey continue.
