It's not easy but it's simple. There are so many reasons I said "yes" to Idaho Fat Loss. It's time. My weight was holding me back and emotionally weighing me down. It was time to take control. I also let it affect my parenting.

If I could go back in time, I would have made a better decision as a mother. I see that now. It was time to provide a little clarity in life and face what was happening: I was out of control and pretending it wasn't happening. Watch the video above if you don't know what I'm talking about.

I have been on the Nutrimost plan at Idaho Fat Loss for one week. I'm down 11.8 pounds. At first, it took a bit of time to get everything organized. I have to write down my food and hold myself accountable but now I'm writing it down BEFORE I eat it so I know what I have ahead of me. It takes out the mystery of "what should I have for ____".

Each morning, I step on the scale before I get into the shower. I never thought I'd be the type to take a picture of the number - I would avoid it like the plague. While I'm not ready to reveal my starting point (yet), I will do so as I finish this whole thing. I think it's the before and after mentality. I'm already getting rid of clothes I'm shrinking out of because I don't want to go back to that size.

Slowly but surely.
