    I'll be candid. I'm not proud of it but it's the truth and I read in a book (the Bible) that "the truth would set me free"

Everybody knows I'm fat. It's not a secret. I hide and it gets worse. I put it out there and it's real. As it goes down, surprisingly people will jump on and support so it's the opposite. There is nothing like creating positive reinforcement from something that I've been hiding from. I'm telling everybody where I am..I also shaved my great hair off:) Why? I want everybody to know where I am so I can't hide from myself anymore. It helps me be accountable so I get out and do the work each day. Watching portions, exercise adn running add up..day by day, creating momentum..I've gone from 292 to 279 in 2.5 weeks...wait and see I'll be back to 200 by Labor Day. THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN FOR ME IF I CHOSE TO CONTINUE TO HIDE.

    OOHHH, You are very brave. I just don't think I can do that yet. I'm proud that you can, but I'm just not there yet.

    I never thought of it that way. You're right what is there to hide? it's not like everyone around you doesnt see your chub all day long, hahahaha.

Thanks the next time I'll just say my weight in a matter of fact way....because it is.
