Like most people out there,I  have struggled with weight, nutrition and healthy living. I know the older I get, the harder it will be for me to lose weight. I also know that if I can make the changes in my life to exercise and eat right, then ANYONE can. I challenge you to join me to reach your goals, what ever they may be. Do you want to lose weight, tone up, gain more flexibility, learn how to eat better, increase your energy & endurance levels? What ever your goal is, chances are, they are the same as mine. And if not, that’s fine too!

I am here to be completely honest about my weight loss journey and hold myself accountable for the choices I make. The reason I have failed time and time again, is because I never included anyone in what I was doing or the changes I was trying to make. The reason for that was so I didn’t have to deal with those people and their comments if I failed. I always went into my endeavor with blinders on, never taking my measurement and DEFINITELY not taking ‘before’ photos. I didn’t want any documentation that I was ever as big as I was! Like, if I ever got skinny I would be able to hide the fact that I was ever fat!

The reason this time is going to be different and I am going to succeed is because:

  1. There is no other option! Its that simple!!!
  2. I’m telling everyone in my life (and obviously on the Internet) about my plans to lose weight and get healthy. There will be no more hiding behind the curtain of shame.
  3. I have taken all of my measurements (and even added my own to the list), did a basic physical assessment & ACTUALLY took my “before” pictures. I keep all of that information accessible so that I see it everyday. It only motivates me to want to change those numbers and images into something that I can be proud of. This is it… I’M DONE BEING FAT.

I am going to make a very bold gesture, just to prove to myself how serious I am about getting healthy. I will post my “before” pictures and measurements for all to see, in the hopes that they will motivate others to make healthy lifestyle changes. I want people to see that I am a real person, with real struggles and body image issues… Just like you. Once a month, I will redo my measurements and assessment and post how I am doing. I will also post tips, advice and updates along the way to also help you. I encourage anyone and everyone to join me in the decision to live a healthier life. So, who’s up for a challenge?
