Yep, I am dieting. Well, no actually, I am working on changing my life. I started using Nutrisystem about three weeks ago. It's not a diet, it a new way of thinking about food and your life.

It's only been three weeks and for two of those weeks I haven't been able to excercise (I threw my back out and just got clearance from my doctor to start excersicing again). I've lost 6 pounds!

I know it doesn't sound like much but, for me it's the first time I've weighed under 200 pounds in over 8 years! Now that I can exercise, I hope to loose more weight easier. Although, I don't want to loose it too fast because then I just have a better chance of gaining it back.

This is about change, true life change, permanent changes in my life. Changes in the way I think about food, changes in the way I eat food, changes in my exercise routine, changes in my attitude. I feel better about myself and my possibilities than I have in quite some time.

I am blessed.
