Trying to improve my life

At the beginning of November I decided to lose weight and to get serious about getting the weight off. Admittedly when I started I had no clear plan in mind; although, I did eventually come up with one. November 1, 2013 I weighed 279 pounds. December 1, 2013 I weight 279 pounds. The problem? Me. Oddly enough I don’t really have a problem with exercising. I like walking and doing Tae Bo. My issue is food. I’ve gotten into the habit of quick and easy food like Chinese take out, McDonald’s and Burger King, frozen pizza and of course the drink of the Gods, Pepsi. I love Pepsi. Notice in that list there were no vegetables included, or fresh fruit. Well it’s time for me to commit or to stop wasting time pretending I’m going to do this.
5 Goals for December:
1) No soda/pop
2) Eat meals at planned times (no missing breakfast)
3) Drink at least 2 liters of water a day
4) Eat two servings of fresh fruit and 5 servings of vegetables a day
5) Do cardio at least 3 times a week for at least 30 minutes
Extra goal: Get 8 hours of sleep a night.
I will also be doing weekly weigh-ins instead of monthly. I think this will help keep me focused on my goals and to be more accountable to myself.
