We all have dragons to slay and sometimes your dragon is you...(My journey to lose weight, get my blackbelt, and have a baby)

"As soon as you concern yourself with the “good” and “bad” of your fellows, you create an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weaken and defeat you".
Morihei Ueshiba (greatest martial artist ever)
Boy did I need to read that quote. I just got home from helping my brother-in-law's girlfriend paint their new place. She is a great girl and I enjoy spending time with her. In January she started "watching" what she eats and having more regular exercise and as of today she has lost about 30lbs. It is so hard not to compare myself to her. This is so freaking frustrating. Why can't I lose weight?!?! What is wrong with me already??? What is she doing that I am not???
Ok, so to regroup, tomorrow I am going to start counting my calories and carbs . I am now willing to starve myself to get the weight off. It just has to happen.
