Last Post Today (I Promise) -- A New Blog

Today I set a goal to lose 20 pounds by December 31st. If you haven't seen me in a while, well... I've gained weight. Ta da!
If you have seen me recently, then you know I could stand to shed a few. There's really no denying it. (And this isn't a request for compliments of any kind. I'm just telling the truth). My long-term goal is to lose about 50 pounds. By when, I don't know. I'm just setting time-specific goals for the short-term and eventually I'll get to the long-term success.

I am a member of a weight-loss and healthy living success group at my work. Initially I joined because I was a trainer, they asked me to teach a class on exercise to the group, and (of course) I wanted to lose weight. It's pretty much done nothing for me up to this point because I wasn't really accountable to anyone and didn't take it seriously enough.

The group is only meeting on the first Tuesday of each month, so today we did some brainstorming about how we could help keep each other motivated for the other 28-30 days of the month.
I suggested a blog so everyone could contribute their ideas, successes, recipes, etc. and be able to access the suggested resources outside of their work e-mail accounts. No one else knew how to start it, so... I am officially in charge of said blog. I'm thinking that will help keep me motivated.

So, here it is:

Success Group

Stop by if you feel so inclined. And wish me luck on my way to a healthier life. :)

*I'm not posting a "Before" picture. The fugly one of me below should be sufficient.
