I am finally ready to commit to an actual program to lose weight and get in shape. I'm not getting any younger and every day it gets a little harder to lose the weight. Today is my first Twirly Tuff workout. From what I understand, we will be doing a six-week program where we meet twice a week to workout, he gives us workouts for home and we follow the Primal Blueprint 21-day eating program (we will do that cycle twice apparently). I so hate rigid eating programs but doing what I've been doing hasn't gotten me anywhere so I need to get off my lazy ass and actually make a commitment to change. I have been throwing around all kinds of "I can do it" cheerleading statements, yet I'm starting this year being the heaviest I've been post-surgery.
At my last "lose the lard ass" update, I was at 255 pounds. http://lolorashel.blogspot.com/2011/12/operation-lose-lard-ass-four-months-in.html
This morning, I weighed 253.6. At least I made it through the holidays without a gain. I took some photos this morning, mostly to help motivate myself. I wasn't really sure I wanted to publish them, especially since self-humiliation hasn't really worked well for me. But I want to have a starting point and I thought sharing was caring. :-)
So enough with my bullshit. It really is time to put on my big girl panties and take responsibility for myself. 2012 is going to be epic. And I have deemed it The Year of the Viking!
