I haven't actually started any changes today, just started the planning of changes.  At the doctor's office two days ago, I weighed my highest ever at 265 lbs, so that is what I'm considering in my own mind as my beginning weight.  Tomorrow morning I will weigh in officially and see where the game says I'm starting at.  There will be no quit in me this time!  My health has suffered terribly, and I'm horribly afraid of what this will lead to soon if I don't make big changes.  FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION!!!
