Hi there ....
My weight loss journey truly starts today when reality hit me like a smack in the face. A team member and I decided we were going to support each other in getting healthier and lose weight. Well as things can happen where I work, this support thing grew into something bigger. Speaking of bigger, we are now doing our own version of the Biggest Loser and today was weigh in. I knew I was huge ... I refer to myself at work as "2 ton Tony" much to the dismay of my fellow workers ... then I went to the clinic to weigh in, since work does not have a scale capable of handling my weight. I braced myself, told myself you are bigger then you think, do not be surprised. Wrong, I was much bigger then I expected and I was beyond surprised. At 372 pounds, no wonder I have trouble walking, standing, doing anything, but I have only me to blame, and now I need to get it off.
I know myself well, though, I will work hard at this for a couple of weeks, maybe even months then say I am done, it is too hard, what does it matter, and that is where I will need support, help and just flat out scolding when I decide to give up.
As for other info about me, I am single, no children, 47 and want to live to be 97.
