DB's Workout Plan

For a while I've been saying to friends and whatnot that I really want to stop eating junk food and improve my health. I'm not in bad health by any means nor am I obese...but I've gained some pounds in the last couple years and I think it's time for a change.

Recently I've been running 2-2.5 miles each day. I know that doesn't sound like a lot, and it's not, but please keep in mind that I just started and I've been pretty faithful with it. It does feel good to wear your body out in a healthy way.

Food is another subject. I've been battling lately to not make late night McDonald's runs, to not have 3 chili dogs and cheese fries for lunch, and it is not easy!! I think it's unrealistic to say that I'm going to quit McDonald's cold turkey. I've been eating it for probably 18 years so to say that I'll never have it again is not a reasonable short term goal. But with some accountability and willpower I can significantly reduce the amount of double cheeseburger value meals that I consume.

Someone actually told me earlier today that I looked thinner to them. I don't understand why and I think maybe its the haircut. I do need a scale though. There's no sense in trying to lose weight if I cant monitor whether or not I'm succeeding.

Anyway, I'm not trying to pat myself on the back for this. I've got a LONG way to go. Does anyone have any useful advice?
