I guess this has been a long time coming. I wrestled with the thought of starting a blog for a couple of reasons. One being, the transparency of it all. It takes some courage to put your life out there for people to see on any level. The second one being I didn’t think I really had a lot to say on losing weight. I’ve experienced some success at losing weight before. Lost it and gained it back. Looking back on it, I believe life had quite a bit to do with it. I reached the point where the pain of changing was more than the pain of staying the same so I set out again to lose weight. This time around I focused more on the mental aspect than the physical. So I was off. Now 16 weeks, 58 lbs later, 4 pant sizes & 2 shirt sizes later here I am. Haven’t reached my goal yet but I’m closer. I feel like I’m about 100 yards out at sea. I can see the shore but I’ve paddled too far to go back. So here I am, sharing my journey.
I heard a while ago you never know who else wins when you succeed. So to that end, I’m diving into the blog world. Here’s to helping someone else by opening up my life, my thoughts, & my emotions.
Where I started…… Where I am now…..
