It seems that when the seams begin to be bust on some of the pants you're wearing it could mean one of two things. 1. That the pants are getting old and it's time to get a new pair. Or, 2. It's your new pair you had to buy last year, because the old ones you had before were much to baggy to wear out in public, without exposing more of yourself than you intended, and the new one's are a (in a high pitched voice) little too tight!
This is the point of any diet that is called the RE-Start. The term "Diet Starts Monday" has never really worked for me. I'm more of a Wednesday kind of guy...the hump of the week, grab a little momentum heading into the weekend, which is usually any Diet's demise.
Well the Re-start consists of all the protien and raw green vegetables you can handle. Which I'm usually finished with after the first day, but it goes on for 2 more days. I think the real goal is, if you make it through the re-start, by the time you get to the regular diet food you just don't want to eat as much any more. The biggest challenge is going out to eat at a restaurant during any re-start, because the one thing I'm supposed to eat, protien and green vegetables...look repulsive next to BREAD.
So here it is, the first post, the first day, and the real goal in all of this is to get slim and trim before the wedding and honeymoon on February 20th, 2010. That gives me a little more than 8 months to try to lose 100 pounds or so. So please check back, as I will be sharing the good days and the bad, and this is one of the best ways to stay accountable, is to have all eyes on me, supporting me, and cheering me on and most of all Laughing At Me.
