A little about me and my adventure

hello... well, I have been thinking about doing a weight loss blog for several months now and today is the day. As you can see from my picture, I have a lot of weight to loose. All my life, my weight has been an issue. I'm sure some of you can relate to how your weight affects every thought you have. I'm tired of thinking what others think about how I look or whether or not I can make it up a hill when I'm out for a walk, or how about whether or not you can squeeze through an opening.

Now in my mid 40s, Health is creeping more and more into the picture. My hips and knees hurt and with a family history of rheumatiod arthritis, I'm getting a bit scared that if I don't lose weight, I may not be able to walk in another 20 years. So that is why this is MY YEAR to lose weight and get healthy. My birthday is Jan 2 so that was my start date for Annie's weight loss adventure.

Now for the scarey part... I am actually going to tell you my starting weight. On January 2, 2010 my weight was 250 lbs. It's now almost April and I have lost 13 lbs. I was hoping to have lost more by now but at least I have lost something so that's a positive.

Hope you join my adventure, whether you're trying to lose weight, maintain your weight or just offering good thoughts for success... welcome!

I'll be posting once a week, perhaps more if I'm at a point that I need a bit more support to overcome an obstacle.
