On the trip that started it all
three years ago.... March 2009.
Men's size 48 pants... unknown starting weight...
but it was up there!
Came home... decided to stick with it
Just to see what happens next..
Someone suggested I should blog...
One question - what's a "blog?"
During the "Can't Stop Bragging" phase... end of the first year!
Here's the glam shot of the now-too-big-men's pants
Changes are slow with me - despite my 110% dedication to the cause.
I am sometimes super frustrated at the slow rate of change!
And yes - I am also gaining muscle.
The scale is higher, but the pants are looser.
I want to think that all the books and blogs and hype is true.
30 pounds in 30 days... let's see..
I should be looking totally buff in 120 days.
(That's a pound a day, right?)
And then in a year, I will vaporize and weigh nothing!
Three years and still striving!
That's almost a college degree!
At the School Of Hard Knox.
I wonder If I would have started my diet
if I thought it would have taken this long.
And the maintenance!
The zero tolerance for cheating!
It takes so much.
When it all comes together, we are like YAY!
When it falters a bit, we question if it is worth it all.
So Bloggers - we've been hanging out nearly 3 years!
I actually started Blogging in May.
But my diet started in March.
I think of you as real and true friends.
Some of us are closer than family.
THANK YOU all for all your love and support!
And all back at ya!
Party at my place -
8 weeks till the cruise...
Better make mine Induction Style!
