Day 1 - Continued..

I did very well this morning!  2 Eggs & 1 Piece of Cheese for breakfast.  But...I blew it at lunch!  I had 2 Jack in the Box tacos, 1 small bean & cheese burrito from Del Taco, & 1/2 a small order of nachos.  Oh yeah, I also had the equivilent of a medium Dr. Pepper.  Why is this so damn hard for me?  It is just easier to run to a fast food joingt than it is to go home & cook.

So I messed up...the plan is to not allow it to ruin the rest of my day.  I am online right now searching for healthy reciepes.  Hopefully I will find some good ones.  Once I do I am going to create a shopping list for the grocery store.

Sounds like a great way to start getting on the right path.  Ech week I am going to set some kind of goal.  This week my goal is to STOP DRINKING DR. PEPPER!  Of course I will let you know how it goes :-)

I am attempting to write down all of my calories at the following website:

Day 1 - Where Do I Go From Here?

Hello Everyone!

My name is Jessica Earl and I am starting my journey of losing 100 pounds in 1 year!!!  I am defintely anxious...not really sure where to start but it is time that I do something.  Today, I am weighing in at 218 pounds.  I do not exercise.  I eat a lot of crap such as fast food several times a day and I am addicted to Dr. Pepper.

I obviously know this all has to change.  Along my journey, I hope to also learn to be nicer to myself.  I am very mean to myself (negative self-talk).  I have a very low self-esteem.  I am clinically depressed & I stress myself out all the time over very minor, trivial issues.

This blog will be completely honest.  I will not hind anything because doing so would not help me.  :-)
