LAUNCH!

LETS LAUNCH THIS THING!! Ive sorta been waiting for my new blog design but I just cant stand it. I want to get started!

As many of you know I have another blog here. But I wanted to start this blog to document my weight loss journey. My purpose for this blog is not to have a sweet and cute weight loss blog where I am scared to show pictures of me FAT or share my real weight. No, this blog is to hopefully offer support to anyone and everyone who struggles with a weight problem.

The truth is I have not been honest with myself. I have not always been overweight. I have always been the "skinny" one, so for me to admit that I have a problem is hard. But two weeks ago when I weighed in at nearly three hundred pounds and my feet hurt walking up my stairs, I had had enough. I'm tired of talking about loosing weight and I'm tired of loosing fifty pounds and then putting on 100.

I started this blog to help other people, but the truth is, I need the support myself as well. I KNOW there are a lot of you out there that could go on this journey with me. Even if you are not overweight you could probably use to get healthy right?

Whats my game plan? I am currently on the "May Clinic" diet. I will go into more detail on that later. I am also taking the "Alli" pill. I know that my insurance would probably cover the lap band surgery but for me that just wont work. I know I can do this. Can you do this with me? Are you excited? I am SOOO excited.

So I will go into what the Mayo Clinic diet is and what the Alli pill does later but I wanted to get my game plan down here. I wanted to touch base with all of you and I wanted to GET THIS PARTY STARTED!

Now I will be posting regularly here as well as my OTHER blog. I will be posting my REAL stats as well as very ugly fat pictures. I want my skinny back and I'm going to get it.

So here's to eating more veggies and fruits then we ever thought we could eat. Heres to "finding our skinny!"

My new blog design is currently in the works but for now here is my little weight loss bar. Be back soon!!!!!

You go girl! I have lost about 30 pounds, but still have more to go. What works for me is exercise and I LOVE my exercise bike! I don't care much for veggies though! :-) And I like carbs.....

I just launched one of my own, but am not linking to my regular blog yet... I'm still too ashamed! Too many in my "real life" read me there and I don't want to announce my weight to all. I will be here for you, and hope you'll cheer me on too. I had my baby Lucy when you had Ty. I will give you another hint if you need it to remember who I am! I'm at Be@utifu1 Ch@0s on blogspot. :)

Our lives mirror yet again... I also ordered Alli, should be here tomorrow or the next day.

are you sure your insurance only covers the lap band? And why are you so unsure of it working?

Annjeri said...

You go sis! I will be on the weight loss track with you and I may look into that Diet plan. We will see. I am proud of you and I know you can do it!

Laura and Walter said...

Yay! You can do this! (And so can I!) I've struggled a long time and know that I need to be healthier. Will be rooting for you!

Angela said...

I'll do this with you. I'd like to lose 40 pounds by August. Let's go!
