Day 1 - where to from here

So I am off to a roaring start, sound so confident don't I?  I've had my breakfast, 
130g bacon cooked in a teaspoon of garlic infused olive oil. 
 52grams of mushroom, 48gr tomato cooked and 2 farm fresh eggs. 
Add 1/2 cup full cream milk and a teaspoon of coconut oil.
I will elaborate on the coconut oil later, have to do more research myself.  Apparently it aids weight loss and helps ward of Alzhimers Disease. It sure tastes great in a coffee.

The basics of the Primal Lifestyle eating is that you eat less than 50grams of carbs a day, moderate protein and most fat (good fat), animal not manufactured fats or soy, canola that sort of thing.  So that is what I am trying to do.  So today I start tracking everything I am eating to see if I am under the 50grams of carbs.  I thought I would be, truly and I am a little shocked and horrified to see just how much I am over.
As you can see I am sitting on 71.7 grams of carb, shock, horror.  No wonder I am not losing any weight here!!!!!!!!  The fat ratio is good with it being around the 64%  it should be around 65%, no worries there.  The tracker is from a site called FitDay.  It's a great help for tracking and finding out how much carb there is in a food.  Now that I realise I am over by some 20 odd grams a day I will try and sort that out tomorrow.

Well now I have had it, I can't stand looking at myself, my gut is getting bigger and bigger and I really hate the way I look and feel.  So I am giving myself 12months to lose the near 30kgs I need to lose or I am having a lap band surgery.  I don't want to, I love food it's how I socialise and we love to travel and eat the food where ever we go.  But I just can't keep going like this.  I have the lowest self esteem ever and I am so out of condition, it is terrible.  From Monday 3rd September I am making changes.  Stay tuned and take the trip with me.  Yell at me, encourage me and most of all help me lose this blessed weight.  Keep me accountable please.
