Day 1 of the New Beginning

Progress ReportProgress Report

An attempt to gain control of my diet and life again.

It is 6 AM, and I am planning the new start that I discussed yesterday.  I have really let life and the stress of my summer vacation get ahead of healthy choices.  I know this happened to everyone.  Do not let this discourage you from returning to the path to health.  We can do this.

Yesterday, I weighed 217 pounds yesterday with a body fat of 23%.  My total cholesterol is now 212 with an LDL of 140.  These are all signs of an unhealthy diet or poor genetics.  I think mine is the prior and sugar is the evil minion that is the cause of all that ails me.  

My plan is simple: cut out the artificial sweeteners and reduce my sugar and high-fructose corn syrup and see what happens.
