Alright folks. I have put this off long enough. I took some before pics many months ago and they were so depressing, I threw them away and cried. And cried. And then cried some more.

I only lasted for 4 minutes on that machine of torture, but I still tried! Then we hit our 60 minute swim class. This morning I got up and went back for another swim class that I normally do on Wednesdays. I am tired! But good tired...I feel every muscle in a good way and I feel like I have accomplished so much already this week! I decided that maybe I have been eating right, but I haven't been exercising enough, or maybe not changing it up enough.
Anyway, I am ready to do this weight loss challenge and hopefully put some awesome progress pics up after the 12 weeks! I'm also very inspired by actually watching The Biggest Loser also. I really think it makes me push myself even harder! So, let's
