Yesterday, I got on the scale for the first time in 2011. It was the same WeightWatchers scale that I’ve been weighing down since last spring. I came in at the most I’ve ever weighed, 349 pounds. Three hundred forty nine pounds. I never thought I would be this big. Nobody can believe I weigh that much because, as they say, I “carry it well”. Whatever that means. I think I look every bit of 349 and I know I feel it.
This post’s title, “View From The Top” is what I have right now. I have a view from the top of the weight loss mountain and this is a place I never want to be again. I knew that I could not have any realistic weight loss during the holidays. It just wasn’t going to happen. That’s why I’ve waited until now to start working my way down this mountain. I am going to be keeping track of everything that I eat and I am going to force myself to exercise. It’s not going to be easy and I will stumble but I’m going to be prepared to pick myself up and keep going.
I’m going to keep one thing in mind throughout this process; slow and steady wins the race. See you in the foothills.
