Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

My homage to the 14lbs that I lost on Allan’s DDDY Challenges. A watering can for the vast oceans of water that I have learned to drink and love every day.

The First Step

Today is the first step towards a fitter healthier life. I was inspired by the lovely lady at http://escapefromobesity.blogspot.com/ I hope that she doesn't mind that I am going to post her here. But looking at her story made me realize that pretending that I was a "healthy fat" and that I "carry my weight well". Just two lies that I used to keep myself sheltered from the following facts:

1. I am a size 24/22 and have been getting a half size bigger every year for the last four years;
2. I can no longer participate in the physical activities that I want to without embarrassment and/or "porno style" heavy breathing;
3. That I have been trying to convince myself that the weight is going to "go away" on its own; and
4. I hate being this fat.

So I have posted my biggest nightmare on the web for all its beautiful-horrifying glory to me. I am 34, fat and I have a gut that rivals that of St.Nick.

I am going to make some changes and its here for all to see.
