The Beginning-Again

I am 40 years old. I haven't been in shape for over 20 years and I have been significantly overweight for the past 15. This is my journey. I can no longer ignore my health. I have thought about it plenty and tried many different times to improve, but here I am. I want to pass on healthier habits to my family. I would hate to watch my children go through the same experience as me. I want better for them. Whether I realize it or not, they watch me. They learn from me. I was an athlete. I am an athlete. I have started running this past year. I can run for over 30 minutes without stopping. Yet, I am still obese. The time has come to change my relationship with food. It's an emotional outlet for me. I know I can do better. I must do better. I have created this outlet to track my:
Eating, Exercising and Emotions
(3E for short)

Each Sunday night I will post my menu plan for the week and link it to Menu Planning Monday over at I'm an Organizing Junkie. Then, each night I will post my 3E results for that day. This is for me.

I am starting out with The Biggest Loser 30 day Jumpstart program. All my meals will come from that. After that, we will see.
