losing with no support system...My

The beginning of this month i wrote a blog about starting over and losing weight the right way. well its now 21days later and let me tell you it has not been easy what so ever(trying to lose weight never is). I have been trying really hard to eat right and workout 30 min a day but with temptation of forbidden food from family (since i am the only one in my house on a diet there is always temptation)I have fallen off my diet a couple of times. after thinking about it i feel like i am missing a support system someone to push me to do that last mile or tell me to put down the soda and have an apple.If you’re trying to lose weight it’s important that you find yourself a good support system. Someone that will push you, help you, and motivate you. And they should also know about nutrition. They need to understand what you’re going through and not try and temp you. you need someone who will encourage you, educate , and push you close to their breaking point.
If you your like me and you have no support system then you should try to be that for yourself and try to practice self control around food that you know you should not have I know its easier said than done(because boy let me tell you its hard to keep your self encouraged when you don't feel very encouraged sometimes)but if you have no one to help keep you in line then try and be your own motivator and push yourself to the limit I know i should be the last one to speak about pushing yourself but its all new to me and something I plan to keep trying and doing it until i get it right and I am happily health.

Where have I been?

Its been 20 days since i last posted on my blog it I have so many reasons which i will  create 3 new post for tonight. back and ready and this time i wont let life and other people bring me down!!!!

day 1 of starting over!!

Today was day 1 of starting my diet the right was and let me tell you started off ruff i woke up late and didn't have time to make breakfast (but its really not an excuse but i will do better tomorrow) but once lunch time came around I think i did ok I got 1/4 chicken meal (white meat) i only ate half of the rice anf for dinner i hade 1  1/2 cu of brown rice and baked chicken and sting beans and as for my water intake today i drank about 7 bottles of water (kept refilling the same bottle) and far as my work out goes i cleaned my room and car (defiantly have to way better no excuse what so ever)
Over all today was OK I am not proud of how it started  and my work out  but I am not perfect and there is always room for improvement and i am trying to change day by day!!

starting fresh

Today after school i sat and thought about where have i gone wrong in the past and i realized its because i start strong and finish very weak and i get bored with the food i eat.So after all that thinking I  have come up with the idea of starting fresh this time no diet fads or there things to lose weight faster just eat right and work at least 30 mins a day!!

why do you want to lose weight?

When I first started this 3 months ago it was because I wanted to look and feel great on my birthday,  I was sick of being the only "big" one in my group of friends and also I was sick of not being able to find clothes I like in my size or if I found them they didn't look right. Now I see my weight loss journey as a way to get my health back I have diabetes and it runs deep in my family a way to control diabetes is weight loos and I don't know about you but I want to live a long and happy life. i cant do that being 100 pounds over weight.

~~~Just started this blog today and this is my second post :) well until tomorrow going to read until i fall asleep

Why start a blog?

I was inspired to start a blog because i want something to help keep me accountable during my weight loss journey. i currently weight 248 and  I have type 2 diabetes which has pushed me to want to lose weight even more.
