Overweight people make a lot of excuses about how they get that way. Life is stressful, they’re too busy to exercise and eat right, it runs in the family. There is a myriad of excuses people use, but in the end, it all comes down to eating too much and not exercising enough.

I would know, I have been overweight my entire life. But that’s going to change.

A couple weeks ago I came down with bronchitis which led to a trip to the doctor. I had to do what every fat person dreads, step on a scale. I was saddened and embarrassed at the number that popped up. How did I let myself get to this point? That was the moment I decided I needed to make some serious life changes.

I have set a goal of losing 100 pounds in 2013. A daunting number, but if I break it down, that’s only 2 pounds a week. When you put it that way, it seems much more reasonable.

I have tried about all the fad diets out there, Atkins, SlimFast, Nutrisystem, Medifast, you name it, I’ve probably tried it. They all worked for a little while, but I inevitably gave up and put on all the weight I lost — and then some.

This time is going to be different. I am going to take the weight off by eating right and exercising more. This means the weight won’t come off as fast, but with enough hard work, hopefully it will come off — and stay off.

I am going to update this blog daily with my progress, workouts, healthy recipes and things that inspire me. I hope doing so will help keep me motivated and accountable. Hopefully I will be able to inspire others along my journey.

I really hate this picture of myself, but you know what they say — a picture is worth a thousand words.
