So after starting the process to configure my account on www.loseit.com I had to put on my (literally) big girl panties and weigh myself.
I have not done this in a loooong time.
I know, childish.
I just didn't want to know. Aren't we all guilty of doing this sometimes? Don't you avoid unpleasant things?
Like the dentist?
Like the, you know, lady doctor?
Having that pesky mammogram?
I have been guilty of avoiding all of these things. Some of them I am currently avoiding, other have been put way back on a burner to be ignored until I can't sleep some night.
I was over weight when I met Mr. Smith. I was overweight when I got pregnant with Grand Master H. I was so sick the entire pregnancy that even the most minor exercise made me even sicker. And then, before I knew what the hell was going on, I got pregnant with Famous Baby C.
Between being pregnant twice in three years, breastfeeding for two years, being sued by my mother-in-law and any number of other more minor dramas, losing weight seemed like the least of my problems.
So up my number creeped and creeped and creeped.
Now there is significant work to be done. There are 70 pounds that need to be lost. Walks, and workouts and salads in my future.
All of this so that I can be a better mother, wife, daughter, sister, niece, person.
It will be hard, but I am putting out here so that I am held accountable.
There you have it.
