Let's Get Real...

Wow.  Where to begin?  I'm sure any of you that are reading this are in the same situation as me.  Observations like "wow...didn't know that I was capable of getting fat rolls there...awesome?" and "when did that stretch mark show up?"  are quite common for you.  I know that I have had my fair share of these occurrences.  That's why I am here.  By writing out all my thoughts (good and bad) regarding my journey, I will hopefully finally conquer my fat demons and come out victorious.  Perhaps some occasional shaming by the blog world will help as well in case I fall off the wagon... :)

So here goes.  I have a weight loss goal of 30 lbs.  I think this should put me at a nice healthy 135 lbs with some good muscle definition.  It's a weight that I think is reasonable given my age (26) and body type.  In high school I was hanging out around the 110 lb zone which is think is pretty much impossible (and unsafe).

I will post some nice (and by "nice" I really mean "makes me want to run and hide and never show my face in public again") before photos that show how I look currently.  Everybody loves weight loss photos!  I know that I love to look at the success stories and see what they looked like before they lost all that weight and go " that even the same person?"  I figure that I will like doing this about myself even more.  Can you blame me?  I'll do measurements as well.  Like I said, I will be honest and brutal throughout this entire journey.  I hope you can handle it!

I have some long-term goals and some short-term goals.  Shall we?


  • Lose 8 lbs by family reunion (August 28th)
  • Run 2.5 miles on treadmill (end of August)
  • Hike Table Rock in the Grand Tetons (doing this on August 27th...holy moly wish me luck!)
  • Run a 5K
  • Run a 10K
  • Hike Lake Blanche in Big Cottonwood Canyon
  • Lose 20 lbs
  • Lose 30 lbs
  • Look close to this again:

2006 Bridals
In the middle--I would kill for nice legs!
Out on a hike--I love it!
On the left--those pants would rip if I put them on now!
On the right at Lake Powell.  Swimsuit shape--here I come!
Belly-baring would not be so good for me now (on the right)
Goal--happy, healthy, and care-free!
So what am I doing wasting time writing this blog?  Off I go...I'm going home and getting on the treadmill.  I'll update you tomorrow!
