And So It Begins

The official number is finally in. As of August 1, 2010, I weighed in at 293.2 pounds.

Wow. That's about what I expected, but I still find it somewhat discouraging. Who am I kidding – it’s really discouraging. This is as far as I know the heaviest I have ever been. It’s so discouraging! I had every intention to get everyone motivated for this journey, but here it is day one and all I want to do is slice into a piece of left over Birthday cake.

This journey ahead seams so daunting, however I know it is the only path that will give me back my life. As for now, I must focus on the small victories. I have not slipped up yet and am about to go out for a swim; I guess I can consider that momentary success.


  1. All the little things help. To get somewhere you got to take steps. Keep it up

  2. Daniel* Thanks for the encouragement. I am successfully working on day two, which I guess would constitute as step two. Step by step; I’m on my way.

  3. God bless you in your commitment to loving yourself!! May HE give you the strength, wisdom & willpower you need. SOOO happy you love urself and have the desire to make necessary positive changes... My prayers of encouragement are yours!
