First Day!

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

Well, here we go! This is the first day. Why have I decided to start down this path AGAIN? Well, because I know I can do it for one thing. I lost 35 pounds 2 years ago and never felt better. Then a series of injuries and a flare up of my RA put it all back on in the last year. I got married just over a month ago, and while I loved my dress, I ended up getting a shrug to avoid the back fat issue.

So why today? Well, it took me a month to come to grips with what got back to me about what my family said about me on my wedding day. My niece (22 years old) said to my mom that I looked liked I had gained weight. My mom agreed I was 'a little heavier' - which I guess was the more diplomatic comment! Anyway - instead of saying "Boy she looks happy" as my husband said should have been said, they chose to comment on my weight. Nice huh? It took me a month to stop being angry and decide to use it as motivation. Now I'm ready.

So - what is on the agenda for today? I completed my initial stuff on this website. Took my measurements and weighed myself. I FACED those demons.

I figured out my food for the day and will start working on the farm. With constant physical labor, I will probably spend this week doing that to get my body moving again. Then next week - PX90 that I have had for a year - still in the box.

Here it is - my before picture. I'm the one sitting (spreading?) in the chair. That was the morning of my wedding. That was the last time I will ever look like this. emoticon
