There's something I need to confess...

I am famous for starting things and not finishing them.

For example, I started tennis a few years ago.. bought a racket and everything. It lasted the 8 weeks I went to the classes and I played maybe twice after they were over. I haven't touched it since. I tried hula hoop classes (which I did love!) and have been meaning to sign up for the level two class, but it has been over a year now. (In my defense though I still hula hoop while watching T.V. sometimes). I could go on and on with all kinds of examples, but I think you get the point.

I started this blog back in March with the intention of using this a great tool to hold myself accountable for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, keep track of my progress and find other people with similar goals. I still have those intentions, but I just let life get the best of me, and used it as an excuse. First it was moving, then it was exams, and then I told myself that once I was settled into working full time again I would finally get on track with this. As you can see, it didn't happen.

I am saying it today, I will be doing this more often. I mean it this time. I have ZERO reasons not to, and every reason to do it. I need to do this for my health. And unfortunately I have recently had a reminder about why this is so important for me to do. My Aunt just passed away about two weeks ago, and it was directly related to her health (aka obesity). Almost everyone on that side of the family has struggled with their weight and I don't want to even give myself a chance to become that far gone.

I have at least 20lbs to lose right now, and I am going to do it!
