Losing 30 Pounds: My #1 Thing to Do This Year!

You may have read the post about my 10 Things to Work on This Year, posted in February. Numero Uno on my list was to learn 30 pounds. I thought putting it out there on the Internet would make me do it. Well, all these months later find me not having lost one pound. I’ve lost a bit, then gained it back. I’m basically starting from scratch. Now my thought is if I put that goal into a single post, that I hope lots of people will read, I will have to start in earnest. I’m looking to you to keep my honest. I started today (I know we all say that at one point or another) by eating smart and going to the gym.

For most of my life weight wasn’t an issue. I could eat what I wanted and maintain my weight with little effort (I know, I know). As I got older and after I had my kids, though, all that changed. My metabolism seemed to come to a screeching halt. Putting on the weight was very easy…taking it off, hard. Now I always seem to hate how I look, but I went through some times of not caring enough to do much about it. Well, that’s not the case anymore. I want and need to do something about it! It is largely ego-based, but I also want to be generally healthier, for my family.

Does anyone else have stories of weight loss struggles and/or inspiration? Share them in the comment! The cause of losing weight is one that brings people and their comments out. They want to share…please do! That way I, and others, can learn and be inspired by the stories. Also, when you visit, add your blog site’s URL to the Simply Link list on the right of the page. That way the word about your awesome blogs can spread just a bit more.

So, away we go! I’ll keep you posted and you keep me posted!
