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.
