Okay, so I said I would do this, but now that the time has come, it is WAY harder than I thought. In my last blog post, I told you that I would post my weight here tonight from when I went to Tops for the first time. Well, I arrived home about an hour ago, and it took me that long to sit down and have a cup of tea and build up my courage...I would have had a drink for the courage, but apparently there are a lot of calories in alcohol, lol.
So the number is....drumroll, please! Today, I looked at the number, and I knew that I was up there, but it was 204.4. There you go, there it is for all the world to see. The good news is that last year when I was back and forth to the doctor a lot before they found out what my problems were, I had hit 232 at one point, so I am down since last year, but tonight it feels like I have so very far to go before I am at a healthy weight again.
But today I start, and next Monday night, I hope to give you a smaller number.
And for all of you who have sent me an email and are ready to start your journey with me, I guess the best forum is going to be a Facebook page where we can all check in with each other, provide support, motivation and a shoulder to cry on when we need it. I hope to have time to sit down tomorrow and get that done, and I will send it to everyone who said they wanted to do this together.
I will also admit that I am a bit down tonight, as I really can't believe that my number is so high, I weighed about 30 pounds less than this on the day Mitchell, my oldest was born, and that was before I gave birth. Ugh...okay, I can do this, right? I need to do this!
