The Beginning

Honestly, I'm not really sure what has made me decide to start this blog. It's not like I need another thing that I'm addicted to checking and updating each day on the computer. It could be that I'm just procrastinating and avoiding my work that needs to be done tonight as well. Ah well - here it goes. It might be nice to have a journal of this journey that I'm intending on taking.

As my title suggests, this is my year. I'm 28 1/2 years old and there are things I need to have done, areas of my life that need to be cleaned up and dealt with before I turn 30.

#1 - My weight - I am 5'8" tall and as of January 7th, I weighed 263.6 lbs. I want to lose 100 lbs (and then we'll see from there).

#2 - My marriage - it's over (Thank God!) and we've been separated since June '06 but I need to file for divorce and get it all done and over with.

#3- My education - I need to finish it, or start a new program. I need to end up with something that will enable me to earn a decent living so that I can support my girls and I.

Hi Holly! Welcome to the blogsphere! I'll tell you why you started this blog. It's because you're serious about making those changes in your life and getting those things done. There's nothing worse than the feeling of "I wish I was doing it." And I'll tell you right now, when I first got started with WW online and got excited about the program and the idea that this was actually going to make it happen, I realized that it was soooooo much easier mentally to actually be following the program and being "on track" than it was agonizing over NOT doing it. And the still rings true today (almost 2 years later).

Thank you for reading my blog and commenting and of course I wouldn't mind if you added my link! :-) We're all in this together! :-)

Good luck with your goals! It really sounds like you're off to a great start! I'll be checking in on you! :)
