A new year, a new beginning

Today is my 36th birthday.  For some reason this birthday was kinda bummed me out.  30?  Loved it!  35?  No big deal.  So why the random 36?  I think because I am no longer in my mid-30's.  Now it's my late 30's.  Silly, I know.  But, this birthday has got me thinking about my life and changes I'd like to make. 
For as long as I can remember I have struggled with my weight.  I finally was getting a hang of it before Tom and I started dating.  I swore, up and down, that I would not go back to where I was before.  That I would keep the weight off.  Yeah.... that so did not happen.  Here I sit, way too close to my highest weight.  Grr!  How did I let this happen?  I am so annoyed and frustrated with myself.  So, I have decided it is time to make some changes.  It will not be easy, this I know.  But it is possible... if I work at it.  I will cut back on soda, I will eat less sweets, I will exercise more, I will eat more fruits and veggies.  I will look like this again!
Or maybe even better!  I will post updates on my progress. (Gotta have accountability, right?!)
