Welcome to 40 in 40: Laugh Together, Lose Together
I honestly don't know where to start. The beginning comes to mind, but where is the beginning of obesity? Well that was dark and dismal. This blog is not about being dark and dismal. Sometimes it will happen, however, it is not the goal. If you read something particularly dismal, feel free to let me know.
A little about me: I'd be way happier if I were 40lbs lighter...more about me, I am a blogger. I love to write. Writing frees me. This blog is to free me of these 40lbs that are having a torrid love affair with my body. Just so you know, this torrid love affair is nothing new. I've always fought with my weight. Sometimes I win the fight, but usually with not-so-good-techniques. I have done pretty much everything to lose this weight.
I want to take everything that I know about weight loss and customize (cheat when I feel like it) to my needs. I want to tell you that I am not a doctor and if you want real advice, see one. I'm here without a Dr., but with a OMG I'M HUGE degree from the School of WTF??
Currently I am 200lbs. That is a whole lot. Right before my son was conceived, I was 199lbs. I thought that was great, because at the time I was trying to lose anyway. Fast forward to thirteen years later, there is nothing great about 200lbs. I managed with the "help" of diet pills (that are currently off the market, because people abused them to DEATH, thanks..) to get all the way down to 158lbs. NO BUENO. I really looked ill. I am very comfy in the 165-175 zone.
40 in 40: 40lbs in 40 days!
40 in 40: 40lbs in 40 weeks!
Yep, that's the deal. Come visit, if nothing else, you will laugh. I know I will be laughing.
Trust me, there will be days when you may check me out and feel worried about me. DON'T!!! I am an old hand at this, 34 years old to be exact.
Tomorrow is the start, because if you've EVER dieted, you know that diets start on Monday.
My goal is to stay under 1200 calories a day.
Wish me luck!
I love me for losing, I'm on my way!
