The beginning of a new me!

I've known for a while that I needed to do something about the pounds that have creeped up on me, but I saw myself in a picture the other day and said something's gotta change! I belong to an online community of fellow photographers and somebody stepped up and decided to start a weight loss group. I jumped on the bandwagon and thought it would be such a great motivating force for me!

Anyhow, I thought that I might document what I'm doing here...and start sharing some of my fave recipes, workouts I'm doing, whatever! The online weight loss group is going for 6 weeks but I hope to keep it up forever with the new healthy changes.

I had my husband take "before" pictures of me and I can tell you right now, those will NOT be shared yet since I'm grossed out by them but I do hope to do an "after" picture here in 6 weeks and then post the "before" and "after" pics side by side.

So what is my goal? 10 pounds in 6 weeks...it's definitely do-able! I'll be back to post a quick summary of all of my stats later. I can't decide if I'm going to do a daily summary or a weekly one. I do know that I will definitely feel more accountable by sharing it here.

Here's to success!

Thanks Marissa! I keep forgetting that I'm NOT in high school and I DON'T have a high schooler's metabolism. Time to make some changes!
