People who know me (in real life) know that I have some weight issues. I’ve gotten to the point where I tell jokes about myself to put people at ease (which really does the opposite, I know). It’s just that I want people to know that “I know” I am fat. There it’s said. I know it and now it’s time I do something about it.
I am tall at 5’11-3/4″ and I can still hear the words of my high school basketball coach, Alice Witte, telling me, “Karen, it’s so easy for you now, but if you ever stop exercising…you’ll gain weight. And the older you get, the HARDER it is to take off.” I remember rolling my eyes at the mere thought of ever being heavier than my 148 lbs of graduation. I wish I had listened to Alice….because I have more rolling on me now than just my eyes. (see how I just slipped that in there?)
So, here it is…I need to lose 100 lbs during this next year. It will probably take me longer, but I figure I’ll set the goal for a year. For the challenge itself, I think 30 lbs is do-able.
Anyone want to join me for a walk in the park today?
