Here we go!

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Alright. So. I need to lose weight and be healthier. I've needed to do this for years and its getting ridiculous how long I've waited. I mean, yea, I'm only 23, but I've been in the "overweight" category since middle school.

I mean, don't get me wrong. I've had great intentions and I've tried to step up and be healthier time and time again, but it always fails. I DO NOT want to fail with this anymore. I've never been so public about this journey and I'm hoping this makes the difference. I've always just tried to do it on my own, not letting anyone know that I so desperately wanted to make this change.

All of my roommates (I have 5 roomies) and friends are really healthy and I feel so out of it. One of my roommates just ran a half marathon! That's so awesome, but I just can't even imagine running more than like 2 miles. Yikes. Kind of not cool.

So here we go. I'm gonna be public about it all and hope that makes a difference and that I can stay on track. And I have no shame in saying that I'm a girl and I want and need encouragement and compliments from people when I do things well or when I succeed. I need that affirmation, and I'm not going to say that I don't. Maybe that's what's been missing- I don't have the self-confidence to assure myself, and I haven't given other people the opportunity to affirm me.

Ok ready go. Let Day 1 Commence. Weeeeee.

    You can do this -- YOU can change your life if you live intentionally. I'm here to encourage and advise you if you need guidance. It's time to focus on the road ahead rather than trying to look back over your shoulder at the miles you've already journeyed. Today counts! Your "tomorrows" are shaped by what you do today. So make every new day count. :-)

Good luck!

Prof Bob
