OK, I'm back.

OK, I'm back.

I had a very stressful December and totally bailed out on any weightloss. And I hardly worked out at all. So of course I gained even more weight than I'm already up.

I've decided that 2007 was a lost year when it came to weightloss, but a majorly found year when it came to myself. My weight wasn’t stopping me from doing things I wanted to do, but it's stopping myself from being comfortable in my own skin. And at 234, this isn't some esoteric thing. My pants are tight. My cute clothes that I went out and bought 20 pounds ago aren't so cute. I have a few outfits I can wear to work.

Oh, how I hate new year's resolutions, but I might as well jump on the bandwagon, chop this up into workable pieces, and get back to work. I'm going to take an "agile" approach, set a short term-goal, evaluate what it took to get to it, and then re-evaluate when I get there.

No timeline, just a goal. Just back to 218, my pre-Sammy pregnancy weight, the place where I started to get out of control.

Maybe without finding yourself, the weight would have been far worse. And, without finding yourself, you'll be better equipped to handle doing the weight loss.

Happy 2008!
