Ok, there it is. My first public weigh in number is posted and will remain in the sidebar until I hit my goal weight of 185. That’s right. I need to lose 70 pounds! And I need to do it by October 1st.
There are a few of you out there that have generously offered to assist me in this process. For you and anyone else interested in keeping an eye on my number, all I need you to do is to bust my chops if the number doesn’t go down on a weekly basis. I will be posting some data about my eating and exercising habits along the way as well, but the number IS KEY.
My main reason for doing this is that I have always been VERY self conscious about my appearance and have been unhappy with said appearance for a VERY long time. I tend to avoid and hide as opposed to face and fight. So I guess this is my first punch, exploit my uncomfortable self to the interweb in hopes that it helps my motivation to push for results.
I am not going to bore you with the details of my plan. Partly because it’s boring info, but also because it’s not very specific.
Basically – Eat Less and Exercise 5 Days a week in some way for a minimum of 30 minutes.
I really hope I can get this going and start seeing results. I am heaver than I ever have been and it, no pun intended, weighs on me EVERY DAY.
You should also be “seeing” more of me in my online presence. By that I mean I am going to be replacing all of my cool logos with actual images of myself. Twitter, this site, etc. It’s time I get comfortable with myself a little more. I should be happy, heavy or not….
So here we go. I pray that God challenges me to bring out my best and that my online pals will bust my chops if I don’t. It starts NOW.
I will be doing weigh ins on Mondays, so the weight status will update weekly. Keep an eye out, hopefully the numbers will be falling like Wal-Mart prices!
