A few days ago, I stepped on the scale and almost had a heart attack. I have packed on way too many pounds this winter and the buck must stop here. No longer will I be talking about wanting to make a change, I WILL make a change!
I am by no means obese but I do not like the numbers that welcomed me when I looked on the scale. As a daughter of a diabetes sufferer, weight is a very strong component to fighting this disease. Being overweight can cause diabetes and various other ailments and symptoms. I refuse to suffer from things I can easily treat with diet and exercise.
I have blogged about losing weight before many times. But this time, ladies and gentlemen, I won’t just blog and write about it, I will practice what I preach. Starting today, I am going to begin the TCC Weight Loss Blog, and I will blog about my weight loss two to three times a week so that you all can keep a tally on my progress.
Being sick has helped because during the last few days, I haven’t eaten much. But starvation is not the key to weight loss. It is ultimately burning more calories than you take it by eating right and participating in exercise.
My goal is to lose at least 20 lbs and to lose 3 to 5 inches from my waist. I would like to reach my goal by May 1, 2010.
On this blog during my check-ins, I will notate my weekly menu and food intake, exercise, and water intake.
I will also use photos to display the progress and will be posing pictures soon.
