Most people like to play that whole "New Year's Resolution" game, but not me. I quit drinking and smoking in November, and started my diet on the first of December. Tomorrow I'm going to start my workout program. I figure by the time the new year comes around, I'll have a running start at my goal.
Let's be honest: 100 pounds is going to be almost impossible for me to lose, ever. I have a feeling that around the 75 pound mark I'm going to hit a serious issue where I have to lose a little muscle mass to lose any more weight. But at that point, I will be in such good shape that I probably won't care.
The wifely one is going to be helping me out, mostly in the form of throwing out leftovers when we're done eating. I used to be a serious athlete, and I spent ten years eating constantly just to keep from losing weight. I have some seriously screwed up eating habits as a result. So, the best way to resist the temptation is to remove the temptation. Whatever we don't eat goes into the trash, not saved for later... like now, because I could totally murder another helping of the chicken and pasta I made for dinner a few hours ago. Instead, I'm going to drink another half-gallon of decaf tea sweetened with Splenda.
When I wake up in the morning, the dog and I are going for a 30 minute walk. After lunch we're going for ANOTHER walk, maybe 15-20 minutes. Then I'm going to stretch really good, and ride one mile on my bicycle. Yeah, one mile. I find bicycle riding to be very difficult, but my feet are too screwed up to run, especially at my current weight. Then, I'm going to play some Wii games for awhile, until I collapse from exhaustion.
Tuesday it starts all over again, except I have to take a break for my Operating Systems class final... joy!
