It's Time!

I've decided it's time to do something about my weight! I am miserably overweight - and I'm tired of being miserable. A couple different things also helped me come to this realization while on vacation. 1st of all my jeans split out when I bent over in public - luckily I had a long shirt and a jacket... Then my mom made a point of pointing out that I had not lost any weight - later she informed me the twinkie I was eating was why I was fat!

When I needed a push to get the Asylum back in shape - it helped to post the before pictures here - it made me at least think I was accountable to someone to clean it up. So I've decided I need to do the same thing for my weight. I had Niko take a Before picture - isn't it lovely! I'm hoping it will help me stay on track. We shall see!

  1. Thanks CP - Friday night Mary said she needed to quit smoking - I said, I need to quit eating - and Niko said - I need to quit eating my buggers!

  2. Hi, I wanted to wish you well on your weight loss journey. I need to lose weight too.

  3. Hey, I'll post a before photo on my blog too. My hubby and I are training for a marathon in November. Once you see my picture on my blog, you won't believe that I can run! :) We're in this together!

    Hugs - Stephanie

  4. Thanks everyone for the words of encouragement. I gave up dieting a long time ago - because they don't usually work - and I get so grumpy - but I'm grumpy now because I'm always so miserable - so I guess it's a trade off!

  5. I have also been on a weight loss journey, been using a website called Sparkpeople, where you are encouraged to make a 'lifestyle change' as opposed to a diet.

    It is slow go, but I've lost almost 25 lbs since November.

  6. Thanks for the encouragement - great job! I'm going to check out Sharkpeople.
