Namely, um, that would be me. The shrinking part.
I need to lose weight. So, I am starting to work out again, a bit more seriously than in these past few years, and watching what I eat. In an effort to regain that once amazing state of mind where being fit was not just a habit, but a way of living my life….you know – when you’re in the zone – when not working out feels…weird, well, I am putting it all in writing to you, my dear friends.
In taking some cues from my friend Greg, who to date has lost an amazing amount of weight and continues, even through knee surgery (that would surely put most people out of the game) and medical issues, I am putting it ‘out there’ so as to keep me from failing on my journey.
(Oh and stop calling me Shirley!)
See Greg’s Blog Here.
So I want to share my journey with you. All my postings will be in the ‘Getting Fit’ category, if you care to read. Actually this is fairly selfish of me – wanting to take you with me for the ride simply so I’ll be more inclined to stick with it. But perhaps you’ll get a little perspective along the way.
So all I ask is that you let me have it (but good!) if you see me slacking (not posting good solid progress on a regular basis.) If I boast to you here and tell you I’m planning on losing about 50 pounds, and then not follow through, I have shaken your confidence in me, and come off looking rather foolish. So, please let me be accountable to you so I can reach my goal. And if ever you need to do the same hopefully this might come in handy for you on that day.
