I have put it off for as long as I can…the vacations with fabulous restaurants to visit are gone, the long summer lunches with friends are past, the birthday parties, and back to school celebrations are finished….there’s just no more reasons to put it off. Well, I’m sure I could think of something…but I’m strengthening my willpower here, friends. THE DIET STARTS TODAY. Actually, it started this morning, and so far, so good. Oh, it is going to be a long hard battle, but it must be done. The first 2 weeks are supposed to be the worst…but, you can do anything for 2 weeks…right? Come on, sisters, let me hear some encouragement. I prayed this morning that God would help me stay focused on my goal, and not yield to temptation. In case you can’t tell this about me, I’m an immediate gratification kind of girl…So waiting for the payoff is hard for me.

EDIT: I tried to post this last night, but someone who is visiting from Birmingham had my mouse and I couldn’t post or even turn this baby off. So actually, this is day 2 now!
