Day 1!

Hello! I hope I have more than 1 or 2 people reading this! lol Maybe my readership will grow as my travels through weight loss land continue; hopefully it will!

.

I weighed in at 262 pounds today – day 1! It’s not my highest weight ever (that would be around 285, in August 2010), but it’s still a daunting number. I have to lose 63 whole pounds to get to one of my major goals – 199!

.

But the mentality has to change. Baby steps! (And baby carrots.) I also keep sabotaging myself by thinking it’ll take sooooo much weight to look different. But I’m assured that I will start to look different after not-as-many pounds! So here’s hoping I look different 63 pounds from now!

.

Food is a friend and an enemy to me. I use it emotionally, and I use it when I’m bored. And those things need to stop! I love food, but it does not always love my hips! So there are some bad habits that need fixing. I also need to pick up the exercise! Blech! Hopefully, after 21 days, it shall be a good habit!

This will probably be a tough journey for me, so I need lots of encouragement! I hope to really use this as a place to open up and share my troubles and mentalities and all of that that needs to change for me to get healthy and more svelte. I hope, also, to post some fun things – like my “non-scale victories” and hopes. (I dream of killer bikinis!) So please, drop in with a comment or question, anything you’d like. I might do Q&As, too, if I have the readers and the desires. That could be fun! I have lots of ideas.

.

Also, look around at the tabs along the top of the site; it’s more about me, this blog, etc. My measurements and progress photos are up there as well! Comment/email me about anything you’d like. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
