False Start

Well I have to put the brakes on.

As you may have known from my previous post I am went from a normal 9-5 schedule to a 7pm-7am every weekend then 9-5 Tuesday and Wednesday. This obviously is going to take some time to get use to. Until I get use to this shift the thought of dieting will have to wait.

Hopefully I can maintain where I'm at until then.

April 16th Update: Changing again now I am going to all night work from 7pm-7am Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and every other Saturday. Let's see how long it takes to adjust to this shift.

May 27th Update: Change 3, Monday through Friday 7pm-3am for a training period. Well it seems that every other day will actually last until 4 or 5am.

July 15th Update: Well back to the previous shift of night work from 7pm-7am Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and every other Saturday. I also have a new boss now. Hopefully a month from now I will be able to start things up new.

Join the Effort, Support is Key

I originally posted this on the 15th of February. I brought it back to the front because the time to start is near.

The Fitness Resolutions article below is here because my resolution is about to start. My first weigh-in will be 9 March.

If you have yet to start or want some help getting started than maybe we can help each other out. The author of the last article stated "Surround yourself with supportive people". If you start with me we can help each other.

Just leave a comment below. You don't have to give a real name, but we do need to be honest about our weight and what works and what doesn't work. If you like I'll add you to this blog and you can post your own account of how it is going.

Hopefully by 9 March I won't be alone in my battle. To read up on how I plan to win this battle check out this post.

Update: Laurie (chart) and Mandy (chart) are both traveling this road who else wants to step up? Irishcoda says she wants to give it a go her new blog to track this progress is here.

Once I do my initial weigh in on the 9th I think I'll get one of those tickers that two of the ladies here have.
