Beginning My Weight Loss Journey

Well folks, it finally happened. I finally got to the point where I want to make a major change, a permanent change. It’s not just about weight loss. I’m tired, physically and mentally tired. This is why I am beginning my weight loss journey.

Getting Healthy

I have dieted before, successfully and unsuccessfully. I have cut back on my vices but continued to treat them as a reward or a crutch when life gets tough. But never before have I felt quite like this…

I suddenly realize that working hard all week only to destroy it with a “cheat weekend” is only making my goals further away. I am now extremely aware of the affect my health has on me mentally and physically. A day of blood sugar spikes results in a bad mood, increased anxiety and complete exhaustion. It just doesn’t seem worth it anymore. I want to feel healthy more than I want an entire box of milk duds. I never thought I would see the day, but it has finally come.

So here it is folks, the beginning of my journey. I thought this would be a good kickstart to my new blog. I am ready to make a serious commitment to myself and to all of you. I will become the best possible version of myself. This starts now.

Today I am at the highest weight I have ever been aside from pregnancy. My goal is to lose 20 lbs in 16 weeks in a mentally and physically healthy way.

If you want to join me, see how I plan to meet my goals in my next two posts:

Let’s rock and roll!
