Accountablity..holding myself to it.

Here is a shocker for you (dripping in sarcasm).

I am overweight. Obese. My body mass index (bmi) is 36.5. I am 5 ft 8 in tall and 243 lbs. The heaviest I have ever been.

I have begun wearing a scarf to cover the bulge that I call "my 3 and 4th boobs" because my bras no longer fit right. sigh.

I have excuse after excuse of how I "got here". Those don't matter, what matters is that I don't want to "be here". I know what I need to do and I AM going to do it!

1. Move! Exercise.

2. Portion control

3. Drink plenty of water

So, these are my 3 goals.

1. I will exercise at least 30 minutes  a day 3 days a week.

2. I will pay attention to my portions. I will modify this later to be a more specific achievable  goal, but at this point I need baby steps. I know I will eventually have to food journal, its what works for me.

3. I will drink 120 ounces of water every day. (half my body weight in ounces)

I will post an update on how I am doing weekly. Every Saturday. To hold myself accountable to working on the above 3 goals. Help hold me to it. If it is Sunday and you haven't heard from me. Please contact me to encourage my efforts and hold me accountable.

Thank you in advance.
