That’s gone far enough

January 13, 2010

While bounding down the stairs at work today, I realized that my gut jiggles more than my boobs.  Granted, my gut isn’t held in place by a bra, but for one thing, my bra isn’t really that restrictive, and for another, ew.

More than slightly horrified, I decided that this ends today.  Right now.

I am 27 years old, a woman (which explains the bra), and I stand 5’6” tall.  As of right now, I weigh 242 pounds.

This is unacceptable.

This blog here is to give me some measure of accountability in getting rid of the 100+ extra pounds I’m carrying.  I’d considered doing a vlog, but I’m way too much of a video snob to be able to sustain one – I edit too much and for too long, and I do have a day job.  But writing is easy and relatively fast for me, so here I am.

For right now, I’m starting simple and slow.  I’m going to be working on making more balanced meal choices, I’ll be cutting the fast food out entirely, and I’ll be making an effort to do some form of exercise each day.  I’ll post my current weight every Monday, and eventually I’ll start posting pictures as well.

At least, that’s the plan.
