Day One: Countdown to Conference

I am giving up my membership in Heifer's Anonymous and giving losing weight one more try, starting day one of yet another diet. My goal is to lose 65lbs. before the Written In The Stars Conference next March. I'm not trying for svelte. I left sexy behind when I hit 40, so this is more about wanting to fit into my clothes better and overall feel better.

This time I'm taking a three prong attack.
1.) more consistent exercise
2.) no carbs for two weeks, then slowly adding carbs back into diet in smaller amounts
3.) no weighing. This time I am getting out the tape measure as my barometer. Weighing only depresses me, which in turn makes me eat things I shouldn't.

I also have a secret weapon this time around. I am not going on this journey alone. I am gathering up a team of fellow authors who also want to fit into slinkier dresses in time for their next conference. Together we can do this. We can make our goal. It's time we took control.
