Preparing For My First Day!!

The Day Before I start:  I BOUGHT A SCALE

I have been planning and talking about going on a diet for such a long time but I never started.  My daughter had been trying to get me to eat healthier but I kept on saying I will..when I do this or do that.  I never really started.  I am by no means in a healthy state as far as my body goes.  I have aches and pains and my feet swell up in the heat.  Ofcourse, I talked myself out of it because I would blame my age, but really, does age have anything to do with it?  By using excuses, I never would have to be on a diet because tomorrow is when I would start...RIGHT!!...unfortunately tomorrow never came.

So...where am I going with this????...Well, my daughter had me watch a movie "FAT, SICK AND ALMOST DEAD" on Netflix and what these people did to lose weight is not something that just is called Juicing.  Heck..Jack Lallane came out with juicing in 1997 when I saw him on TV and he came out with the Juiceman 11.  I ordered the juicer and it arrived at my home in less than 2 weeks.  The next day we bought fresh vegetable...everything that was good for juicing in the combination it specified in their recipe.  Oh that was alot of fun.  We did that for a few days..and then it wasn't that much fun anymore.  I was not serious enough to decide then to try the juice diet..until now!!.. Here is my juicer which is 14 years old...AND IT WORKS!!

So, I went to super Walmart tonight and decided to get a scale.  I haven't had a scale to show my weight in such a long time.  I convinced myself that I don't need one in my home.  If I didn't have one, I could not weight myself.  Not a bad idea..huh!!  Well, if I am going to do this right then I need to keep track of my weight.

This scale is awesome.  It actually keeps track of 4 users.  It also remembers what you weight the last time and calculates how much you  I like that.  Now that I have my scale, I am planning tomorrow's breakfast.  I cannot post it now for that will be for Day 1.  See you tomorrow..I need my beauty sleep to get my FRESH START!!

Goodnight for now!!
