Get it together

For the month of August, I decided I am going to get my butt in gear and lose some weight.  So therefore I am dubbing August, "No fast food August"! Fast food as been my downfall for the past 6 months or so. Neither Adam or I have felt like cooking because we are busy and tired. But I am so tired of not liking my body and I know if I stop eating out and make healthier foods I would lose some of it. It is time for you to go excess weight. I am over you.
I also need to start exercising more. I feel like lately I haven't had much energy. Work wears me out and I go home and become a vegetable. I want to do more Zumba or hiking or swimming or anything really.
My biggest problem is that I don't have any discipline and I am not sure that this will go well. I learned something from my sister-in-law and this book she is reading about introverts and extroverts. Apparently I am not self-motivated but motivated by others. So I am wondering if there is anyone else out there that wants to join me in this never-ending quest to lose weight. I need some motivation ASAP!! I hope we can find recipes that are healthy and easy, work out together, push each other to accomplish our goals or just be a motivator to do all of the above.

Funny... I have the exact same goal! xD I am trying to start out slow right now. Last night when I went to the store I only bought healthy foods so I wouldn't be tempted. We'll have to talk about this more, because I am AWFUL at self motivation but if I have someone to do it with it's not so bad!
