“You will never reach your goal until you start to take action, any action.” Byron Pulsifer
I have struggled with my weight all my life. Around the age 16, I started gaining. I think it had to do some with personal stuff I was dealing with at the time. But I started gaining. Then I lost a lot of weight after high school and kept it off… till I got pregnant.
After the pregnancy, it took me a couple of years to lose the pregnancy weight. I did, indeed lose a lot of it. Then I got married. And started taking a bunch of different medications (hmmm… medications and marriage at the same time… wonder if there’s a correlation? ;) ). And became a homebody who never did anything. So I gained up more than I have ever *dreamed* I would weigh.
I started losing weight about two months ago. I have lost twenty some odd pounds. It’s not really noticeable though. I read that in some overweight people, they have to lose in excess of 40 pounds before people start noticing. I see it in my clothes. I see it on the scale. I’m pretty stoked.
I honestly don’t have a target weight. I need to come up with one so I have a goal. I know I am not meant to be small. Just smaller. I was pretty happy when we got married and I was a 12. That would be a good goal.
So I put it all out here in hopes that this will help hold me accountable. Now that people know I am trying, then I actually have to put more of an effort into it to show you I can do it. Or something like that.
Hold me to it.
