Weigh in Day and Thoughts on the Future...

For those that may not know... this is the happy dance!!

Today I stepped on the scale and am .8 pounds lighter than last week!! Now, you may wonder why the celebration? Get used to it! This little guy is going to be seen A LOT! See, I've been down the road of weight loss many times and would find mind self feeling down and depressed if I didn't lose a large amount of weight each week. This time however, I have made a promise to myself that I will celebrate every time that scale is lower and not berate myself over the small losses. A loss is still a loss and as long as I am headed in the right direction, I am happy!

The Obligatory Who, Why, How....

Ok, so blogging is new to me and I was not entirely sure what I should write about and then, it hit me. I need to write whatever I want to. While this is surely going to be read by others at some time or another, it is mainly for me. This is my journey and my voice to the world.

I woke up this year and realized I was 37 years old and, while happy with my life and my relationships, I was miserable in my skin. I took some time and, looked through old pictures of me over the last couple of years and, I can't believe what I saw. Try it, take a few moments and objectively look at pictures of yourself. It's mind blowing! I had NO IDEA how large I had actually become!
