Happy Birthday!

Hello and welcome to the resistance. Today is my birthday! Woohoo! I am 44 years old today. While it is a happy day it is also a day to reflect on some things. One of those things is the elephant in the room. Pun intended. I need to start up the weight loss blog again. I am always torn on trying to do this because there is a side of me that says, "You have said this before." People don't want to hear how you are going to start this up again. Maybe there is some truth to that but I need to do this anyway so hopefully some of you are still in my corner.

So, for quite some time now my weight has been right around 380 pounds. I weighed yesterday because I knew that I was going to use my birthday to put a stake in the ground on this journey. Yesterday I weighed in at 382.4 pounds. I also weighed today and that came in at 381.8. So I have gotten just a little bit of a head start.

Birthday's are probably not the best time to start a weight loss journey but here is the thing, life is full of reasons and opportunities to not manage what you eat well. It is easy to say after the holidays I am going to get serious. But the holidays are going to roll around again a year from now and how will you manage then? I am saying this for myself as much as anything because I am guilty of having done that in the past as well.

That being said, we are going out to eat tonight. The mistake that I make sometimes is trying to be so restrictive that I lose my desire to continue. I will admit, that hasn't happened in quite some time, obviously. I keep thinking it was "just a few years ago" as I said in a YouTube video I uploaded to accompany this post (Find the link below) and in looking into it, my previous journey where I lost close to 100 pounds was back in 2012.

My next weigh in will be on February 25th. Even though we will celebrate my birthday tonight, I am going to do my best to have progress to report by then. Thanks for following along and not giving up on me! Until next time, goodbye!
