So. Here I am. I've been 39yrs old since May 14th. I've also been getting heavier and heavier over the last 4+ yrs. That unfortunately translates to self-loathing and disgust for myself too. I could sit here and whine about all the reasons I feel like I've gained weight and use all the obstacles life has thrown my way as yet another excuse but the bottom line is I LET MYSELF GO. But just like it took me several years to get way overweight.... it's also going to take time to get back to where I want to. I DO HOWEVER have a lofty goal to be FIT BY 40. And that time is coming quickly.
When I saw that my cousin (close family friend) Heidi was putting together a 60 Day weightloss challenge I knew it was just the motivator I needed to kickstart my journey to where I really want to be physically. So. I'm going to be letting it all hang out here. Quite literally. Getting real with myself and hopefully inspiring a few others along the way that are struggling with the same things I am. The offical start date was this Monday, the 20th. I will let the following photo speak for itself. You have NO IDEA how hard this is for me to post this. Or maybe you do? I'd love to have a few cheerleaders shouting out some positive feedback. THAT would be all kinds of awesome! I process enough negative thoughts about myself for 20 people so negativity is not allowed here. And I'm speaking to myself mostly. LOL Anyhoo..... here goes the dreaded photo. Will check in again soon.
