Weight loss journey

My weight loss journal - Day 1

It's no secret that I have to lose some weight. Well, maybe it's a secret from you because I only post strategically taken photos and never reveal my true weight. As a matter of fact, I'm not going to reveal it today either. I was going to but I have chickened out.

Today begins my new lease on life. At least I hope it does. Last night, with my daughter's support, I signed up for Oprah & Bob's Million Viewer Challenge. I signed a contract with myself to live my Best Life and participate in a program of regular exercise. That's the part I'm worried about because I often start exercising (at the gym, at home, in the park) and I end up getting bored so I stop.

SIDEBAR: That's why I need to be a rich diva and have a personal trainer at my beck and call. One that will keep my butt in gear. You remember my rich diva thing from the seven things about me post, right?

An-t-way, I want and need to lose 45 pounds. I had some blood work done last week and will find out the results today (in about an hour and a half). I will also be getting a complete physical. Kind of scary, but necessary and a little empowering.

SO! now that I've revealed to you that I'm on a weight loss journey you can check in with me and see how I'm doing: give me tips, encouragement, motivation or just a swift kick when I start making excuses! (You know I'm good at that because I won't even stop to take a break and will make an excuse as to why I didn't.)

Wish me luck! I've never had this much weight to loss before and it's a little daunting and depressing, but I want to look like the person who I see inside my head. (Some of you know what I mean.)
