Every journey takes some planning and losing weight is the biggest journey that I have yet to take. I'm not getting any younger or thinner and I decided I can effect at least one of those. Being thinner is the goal for now. It's not easy, but I know there are plenty people to help me. I just need to make the first step, so here it is. Nothing too big, I'm not trying to participate in a million mile march or anything. I just want to feel and look better. I know there are many people out there that feel the same way I do.

I'm the person that knows what needs to be done and can motivate others to do it, but for me the dreaded "p" word comes to mind. Yes, I'l admit it...I'm a procrastinator. TRAGIC! I just have to take the plunge and do it. Life always gets in the way and a thousand excuses follow. Well, I'm tired of myself. I think I'm actually in my own way. Therefore, I'm taking baby steps and leaving the thicker version of me behind. I know it'll take time, I just have to remind myself of that. It ain't easy, but I'm up for the challenge!

My Goals:
Let me play fair. I would say that I inherited some version of ADD from my mother, but why blame her. I like to start things, move on and then start other things. I prefer to be more creative than practical. I guess I'm a dreamer. Hmmm, is this sounding like a personals ad, lol. Let's just say my claim to fame is my sense of humor. I can laugh at myself always and have a giggle about others too. The funny thing is when you need to lose weight the laughter quiets down, but bully to that. I'm going to keep it moving and make fun of myself doing it. I hope my page reflects the kooky chic that I am and every now and again you can laugh a little.

My Program:
This is a work in progress. Plain and simple, I'm trying to exercise. I realize that I waste a lot of time on the idiot box…TV. If losing weight could be done by being a champ in the Xbox game Scene It®, then I would most likely be a size 0 by now. No such fortune. I’ve also added water to my every day. I don’t love water, but it does the job. I try to walk at least 10,000 steps a day, trying to count & reduce calories and am building myself up to going to the gym 3-5 times a week. That will take a miracle, but hey I am a dreamer. Did I mention I procrastinate? This is going to be a fun ride…all aboard – fasten your safety harnesses.
