I love September. Not just because it’s my birthday month but traditionally it is when school starts; new clothes, new backpack, new notebooks, pens ahhhhhhhhhh new beginnings. September is also the month when autumn begins. I love to decorate for the fall. I love Florida but I miss NY because you can clearly see the transition from summer to fall. Soon the leaves will turn and the temperature will start to dip a little. I’m one of those nuts that enjoy the cold weather. This part of the season is also a favorite because you start to prepare and look forward to great holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. And so, in honor of my favorite month, I start my long awaited DIET. I’m excited and scared. This is not my first attempt so pray for me. Not that I’m skeptical it’s just that I understand myself. So I promise not to be too brutal to myself and not to overdue it like I usually do (I can take the weight off, I just can’t keep it off) and take it slow so it stays off. I will follow the Weight Watchers program and start off by walking real slow. I do this for so many reasons but mostly for health reasons. My mother is a diabetic and I see how she suffers and how her children worry. I won’t do that to my kids just so I can have a love affair with Big Mac. Nope I’m done. Sorry Mr. Big, I’ll miss you.
