Here We GEAUX!!!
So I can't put it off any longer. I can't continue to find a million other things to focus on to avoid starting this exciting journey of adapting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It's just time to get crackin'!
I titled this post "Here We *GEAUX!!!" because this journey isn't all mine... you are a part of it, too! By reading and following my blog, you're holding me accountable and helping me to achieve success! But there's so much more to this blog than reaching MY personal goals. My dream is that 'Overweight... AND OVER IT' inspires you to make life changes that bring your own dreams into reality, too! Imagine how it will feel to no longer shop for plus sized clothing... to no longer get winded from walking up one flight of stairs... to hear people say "Wow! Have you lost weight? You look great!".. and to look back and see how far you've come, feeling a true sense of accomplishment! These things CAN happen! They've happened for others and they can happen for you!
In this blog I plan to be open and honest with you about the challenges I'm facing, the struggles I go through, the great things I've accomplished, and what I'm doing to get there. It's pretty difficult to share with friends, family, and strangers how much I weigh and to post pictures of myself looking less than ideal (in my mind). However, I have to do it... for my health, for my future, for my family, for you, for God - and start living the kind of life He designed!
My next post will detail my goals, my beginning weight, and some ideas on how I plan to achieve great things!
* "Geaux" is cajun french for the word "go"... we're big LSU fans in this family and the Tigers have really inspired me this year with a 13-0 season and a spot in the 2012 BCS National Championship! GEAUX TIGERS!!!
