My Weight-Loss Journey

First off, let me just say ... losing weight is not easy. I've lost 34 pounds in around a year. That's great and all but I still have a lot more to go. I'm not losing weight as fast as I should be; I really need to step-it-up. So, I'm going to post this blog to help motivate myself and to keep all of my friends and family updated on my weight-loss journey. It will make me work harder to lose weight when I know that I have people I love watching my progress.

My goal weight is 185. I thought it was 140 or so until I went to the gym and had a body assessment and they said that I have a lot of muscle (they did the body fat percentage test and stuff) and that if I weighted 140 I would have 0% body fat. So, they told me that because of my muscles, that 185 is a healthy weight for me and that it would put me in the perfect weight/body fat category. Once I get to where I am comfortable telling you my weight and what my highest weight was, I will. I'm not there yet. Haha.

So, this is me around my heaviest. This is a gross picture, I know. I only kept it so I could look back and see how much weight I've lost one day. I don't have many full body pictures of me. FYI: I know, I'm not much smaller than the gorilla. Yikes! These were taken in October of last year.

This is me today. Sorry about the scary, no make-up face and for the low quality cell phone pictures. I'm ordering a new camera today. Yay for the pants I'm wearing! They are just now starting to fit me. I haven't been able to wear them for around two years. They are still a little tight. In 10 or so pounds and they will fit me perfectly.

I'll post a new weight-loss blog with a front and side view picture every month. So be sure to check back!
