This is not easy to begin.
I'm not really sure how to start this whole section off.
I feel like I want to include you on my journey to lose weight. But I'm not ready to really show selfies. I do have some - and I think I'll save them for before/after shots... when there's actual progress to show.
Ok, here's the thing. I used to have a great body. Not that I like to brag. But ask my husband. It's true. Then I got married. Then I had a child. Then another child. Somewhere along the way, over the last ten years, I have packed on a lot of unwanted pounds.
I don't think I am unique in this. I am sure this happens to a lot of people. Heck, it happened to my husband. (Sorry Stu)
And I know that for some, working out, being physically attractive and fit is a priority. For me, it is not.
Would I like to be smaller? Yes.
Would I like to look like a version of my previous self? Yes.
Am I willing to give up chocolate, ice cream and other bad things? Nope.
So where does that leave me?
I'll tell you. It leaves me knowing that I need to change. Knowing that it's going to stink. Knowing that I am going to need to cut down on the sweets. Knowing that I need to get back out there are RUN.
I suppose I will use this section to catalogue my journey. This is going to take some time... I am not looking for an overnight quick-fix. I have 40 pounds to knock off. By running a lot last year, I shed 20 fairly easily... but then I stopped running and ate them right back on.
And since I LOVE food so much, I think I'll also use this section as a review on food: recipes and restaurants. I do so love to eat. And it seems to me that weight loss and food go hand in hand. So here they will co-mingle as well.
