Let me start this blog by appologizing in advance. I am a horrible speller, and well my grammer is equally as bad. Hopefully however, whoever reads this will get the point and is already aware of my many flaws. I have started this blog to help keep a record of the trials that it takes to loose weight. Over the course of 34 years, a bizzilion beers, many late night runs to Jack in the Box, Waffle House, Eat Right (mmmm slingers), I stepped on the scale and saw the number 3. Honestly, it could have read 399, I couldn't really tell you. After I saw the three, everything else was a blur. I did some math, if I kept down this path, by the time my daughter graduated high-school they would have to cut a hole in my house so I could leave to see her walk across the stage, and well walking her down the aisle wouldn't even be an option as I would probably be dead. It was a pretty eye opening experience. I spoke with a few friends who are or should I say were struggling with the same issues and have been able to beat the weight issue, or at least start to fight it. I did some internet research, and checked my bank account to make sure that the gym membership I have been paying for and not using is still active. I found a pretty cool website called http://www.loseit.com/ It appears to help you keep track of calories in, vs calories burned throughout the day, and what one person needs to intake to maintain a healthy weight loss of 2 lbs a week. I signed up for it, and well this blog will hopefully log my journey. I don't really know how detailed each entry will be, but it's a start. If this blog does nothing else, I hope it will help me stop eating my emotions, as stress and depression seem to be a few triggers for me. I call it the road to 180 because well 180 is my goal weight by 2013. Please feel free to comment, encourage, and give advice. Hopefully in 12 months the last line will read..."I did it...now to keep it off...The END."
