I’ve been avoiding the subject for quite some time now. Even though I have a whole category dedicated to weight-loss, I haven’t written a single post for it. I need to lose weight, I know it. But reaching out for help is hard. I’ve been too scared.
Scared is really an understatement. Because I have all these grand ideas of putting together this epic weight-loss adventure and dazzling my readers while I drop some weight. I’ve been too ashamed to tell you the ugly details though.
It’s really easier said than done. The dreaming part is fun. The doing part… not so much. There is a real fear to perform once I put myself out there. Do I have enough strength to do this?
Not even my husband knows for sure how much I really weigh. It’s a guarded, top-secret, on a need to know basis, number. And thankfully he doesn’t ask me.
But really, I don’t need a scale to tell me or anyone else the obvious.
As I write this, I do feel a little better. I haven’t really said it out loud, but I’ve at least started writing it down for all of you to read. I’m hoping that by making my intentions known, my readers will become my cheerleaders.
Better still, will be those that follow this particular category because I’ve inspired someone to do the same. This is usually a lonely road that we walk alone. You have to be brave to be overweight.
I plan on telling you everything. I have to. If I don’t, make a full disclosure on my weight, a new healthy eating plan or what exercises I’ll do, more delays for me becoming healthy will happen.
I can’t let myself fall into this self-pity game any longer. It took me a long time to become this overweight and I don’t have any deluded notions that I’ll lose it overnight.
What you can expect from me is honesty. The truth about what I’m doing to lose weight. I can tell you it’s going to take a while. The good old-fashioned diet and exercise route is what I’ll be doing.
I will not be having any kind of surgery or other lose weight quick gimmicks. No pills, wraps or weird shakes. No lipo. Only thing you’ll see me doing is eating right and getting active.
Ha ha it sounds so simple, doesn’t it.
I’ll give everyone the gory details right at the beginning. Each week, I’ll write up a schedule of what I plan to do and what types of meals I will eat. Everything I do will be completely authentic and transparent.
I’m going to include for you pictures and measurements so you can follow along if you wish. I can’t even begin to express enough to you how frightened I am to tell y’all my weight and size.
For those of you that are in the same place as me physically, let me be the first to tell you, that I’m there for you. I understand. I know what you’re going through and we can fight this together.
I hope each and every one of you follow my progress or perhaps join me in this quest to become healthy. I’m doing this, so ready or not, here I come!
