Day 1

Ugh! I gingerly stepped on the scale this morning and quickly jumped back off. Could that be right?! Slowly, I stepped back on again, and yes - sadly, it was right. 225 pounds. Wasn't I at 217 just 2 months ago? I guess I have even more incentive to do this 30 day challenge! You know, the past 2 months have been very stressful for me and obviously, stress does not agree with me.

Here are my starting stats:
  • Weight: 225
  • Waist: 44"
  • Butt: 47"
  • Hips: 45.5"
  • Left thigh: 29"
  • Right thigh: 29"
You have no idea how much I do NOT want to post this info. I mean, seriously! Do you see the fat trend here? But I know how I am, and by putting this out there - I'm giving myself a huge reason to stick with this plan. I hope to see every single one of the those numbers go down in 30 days! My exercise post will come later - since I haven't done that yet today - but I will!!

Now for the reward part! I've been trying to come up with something that will really give me incentive to succeed. For me, that's a haircut - I really don't know why I keep letting my hair grow out because I end up hating it every time! So, at the end of these 30 days, after I've exercised every day and after the numbers have gone down - I will treat myself to a haircut and color.

For those of you who are going to join me, please let me know so that we can keep each other accountable! Think of a reward that will give you incentive to succeed. And if you're brave - post your "stats" too!
