I remember going to the ocean... and it was cold. There seem to be two schools of thought on getting used to the water. First, you just keep inching out there, slowly getting accustomed to it. Second you just dive right in and get it over with.
So here I am... diving right in. The sooner I get started the sooner I'll see progress and it'll be easier to keep going. That seems to always be the hard part, doesn't it?
Temptation is out there... mostly in the form of other people in my life not understanding or supporting my choices. That's really the biggest challenge.
My weight this morning was 152... which is just about the highest it's ever been. I'm not happy with this... it's insane and it just makes me sad. I was going to measure my waist (I'm seriously apple-shaped... all my weight is right around the middle, so I figured it'd be the best indicator of success) but I couldn't find the measuring tape. Maybe it's a good thing because it would have just pushed me over the edge.
I'm only 5'1"... so 152 pounds on me is not a pretty sight. And, I'm having a hard time with my work clothes... nothing fits right, everything looks horrible on me...
