For those of you who have been around for a while, you know I’ve been struggling with my weight for a few years now.

I’ve had trouble sticking with diets and working out, but this time IS different.

I finally feel ready to do this & now I have this wonderful group of bloggers to support me and I’ll be supporting them. 

My goal isn’t to be skinny. My goal is to be healthy. I want to be strong. *And before anything is taken the wrong way, I don’t mean that being skinny is unhealthy*. Some girls are naturally thin, and some work hard to stay thin; I just don’t personally want to be thin, really. I’ll show you a few pictures in a minute of my “goal”.

Going along with what I just said, I don’t have an exact number of pounds I want to lose.

I’m going to guess that I’m trying to lose about 35 pounds, and while I will be weighing myself regularly, that number is NOT the end all be all. I’m more concerned with how I look and feel.

I’ve never been in good shape. When I was younger I was skinny, very skinny. I wasn’t healthy so that’s not MY goal. If you want to be skinny, by all means, get there!

I’m going to post a couple of pictures straight from my Pinterest board, which I’ve linked for you in case you’re interested.

The Goal:

The most important quote..
The reason:
I’m trying to find some healthy recipes. I’m working on what I’m going to eat.
I’m planning to do P90x, which I have started before but I have never finished. 
The goal is to make it through the 90 days this time and when I’m done I want to do Insanity. 
I want to do this because I’m tired of being self conscious. I’m tired of hating how I look. I’m tired of feeling fat. I’m tired of being unhealthy. I’m tired of feeling tired, being lazy, and just generally not feeling good.

I want to look good. I want to feel good. I want to be healthy. I want to be confident. I want to NEVER have to be that self conscious person that I’ve always been, ever again. I want to be happy with myself. I want to feel proud of myself. 
This is why I HAVE to do this this time.
I finally feel like I can do this and I’m ready to start.
The fun starts tomorrow for me. Just went to the store & picked a few things up, I’ll get the rest this weekend. I’m about to head out to work.
Thanks for reading.
Join us if you’d like to reach your goals.
