Bienvenidos a three day blog. If you've just stumbled your way here or you arrived from a Google search (you know who you are), you may want to visit my about me page....and then subscribe to my RSS feed because, yes---I am that addictive.

How do you start a post, in which you are about to bare the most intimate (read embarrassing) details of your personal life. Some people would think that sharing their size isn't that big (no pun intended) of a deal, but for someone like me, who is blissfully pretending that I am a size 2, it can be rather shameful. I am a generous size fourteen, by the way. I am not trying to shame myself into losing weight but I thought that this could be a serious motivator. If in the case that I stay the same or (gulp) gain, I will always post and I will always be brutally honest. Just a side note,for all those who are interested about my plan of action to get this weight off, here is the scoop. I am going to go on a 1400 calorie diet. I plan to eat a very balanced plan that I can stick with for the rest of my life (adding calories once I lose the excess poundage). I also want to add exercise slowly, basically bringing regular activity into my life until I am more active than I am now. I am pretty active now with the kids. I also fidget a lot. I cannot watch t.v. without doing something. It shows you, though how much food I was consuming.
So I think that I have stalled enough. Here goes......

Weight (lbs) 194.5

Measurements (inches)

upper arm 15"

chest 44"
stomach 46"
hips 48"

thigh 26"

So now, if you have tried to mentally calculate what I look like, you probably are picturing a
block...with hair. Well it that is a fair assumption...but I truly hope to change that.


  1. A big the right direction. They say the more people you tell, the more chance of success. You have shared your goals with the biggest audience you could, so that's a great start!!

  2. Yeah...a little scary, but I am excited...
