The Ugly Truth

Height 5'9"
Weight 194 lbs
BMI 28.6 (over 25 is overweight, over 30 is obese)


So this morning I drug my sorry (extra large) hiney outta bed and walked up and down my drive way twice... Yeah, I know whoop de doo, but it's a long driveway, at least 2/10 of a mile, and it's up a hill. It was 5:30 am, pitch black, and surrounded by scary creepy forest trees and my sorry excuse for a guard dog had to be bribed to go with me... So I walked down the hill, when I got to the bottom , my dog took off and left me in the dark, I jogged up the hill, I looked up and saw a shooting star. Woo hoo... That was cool. Then, feeling slightly empowered, I went another go, walked down the hill, got totally creeped out and ran back up. Then sucked air for at least 4-5 minutes before I could compose myself and get in the shower...

It's a start... BTW- Due to last years illness, and possible depression I am about 22 pounds heavier than my 15 yr average at 172... I just want to see 172 again... That's all.


  1. good for you!!!!

    if you have a wii, there is a great program called EA Sports Active that only takes 20 minutes a day. I started in June and have lost 23 pounds. 14 of my friends are using it and everyone is raving about it.

  2. I've noticed others blogging/journaling about weight issues. It seems like a good way of facing the problem head on. Do you think you'll be motivated to do what you need to do?
    I wish you much success at getting on the path back to 172. :)

  3. Good for you for getting started - and in the dark to boot. Good luck!

  4. At least you got up and out...im still laying here in bed saying tomorrow..........
    Im proud of you!!
