I love reading people’s weight loss success stories. They’re so inspiring. And when I originally started this blog, I thought that one component would be to chronicle my weight loss, but that didn’t exactly happen. And so I’ve decided to get real. Today is Day 1 of my Weight Loss Success Story.
Most days when I look in the mirror, I’m pretty happy with how I look. I try to dress in a way that accentuates the positive and hides some of the negative. There are some days though when I’m fed up with myself. Days when I don’t like the way things fit or look…and worse yet, days when I’m exhausted and unable to do tasks that I know I could do if I was thinner. It’s really frustrating. Over the last 5 years, I’ve been really good at reaching most of my goals, but I’ve failed miserably when it comes to weight loss, health, and fitness goals.
I’ve decided that 2018 is going to be my year…and I’ve also decided that I’m going to post my weight each week. Scary! When the idea to post my actual weight first popped in my head, I immediately rejected it because I really don’t want everyone anyone knowing how much I weigh. The idea kept popping back into my mind and I finally decided this may just be the extra motivation I need.
Here’s a picture of me last week. Other than the crazy hair and no makeup, I think I look pretty darn good.
Ok…enough hemming and hawing! My weigh-in weight this morning was 267.7 pounds. I have some mini-goals along the way, but my ultimate goal is to weigh 159.8. My highest weight was 277, so if I can when I get down to 159.8 I’ll have lost over 110 pounds!
Here’s to 2018 being my best year yet! Let me know if this is the year you create your own weight loss success story! I’d love to have friends join me along the way!
