I can’t believe I started this blog almost two years ago! 2011 was great and I started to falter again in 2012, but now it’s 2013 and time to get it back together! I can only hope this year is better than the last and I pray that I can stay focused and motivated on physical, spiritual and emotional development. I have so far to go but even though I gained back all 40+ pounds I lost in 2011, I am more determined than ever to get back on track.
I decided that I could stand to lose a few pounds when I saw this picture it absolutely startled me. I did not recognize the person who was staring back at me and immediately thought how come no one told me I had gotten so fat? That was the moment I decided I had to do something about this stranger who was staring at me.
That was December 2008, and I have made several strides since then. I’ve lost some weight, got too excited and gained a little back. I continued this cycle several times over the course of the last few years but earlier this year I decided 2011 will be different. I decided I WILL meet my goals and I will become a new and healthier version of myself.
So that’s when I declared this will be MY LAST FAT YEAR! And later I decided to make sure I stick to it I should hold myself accountable by publishing a blog. And that marked the birth of my blog, with a title that reminds me I have a goal that I WILL meet.
I hope by sharing my journey I can help other people achieve their goals or at least give them a few helpful hints they may have never thought of. My goal is to lose 75 pounds before my birthday (January 17, 2012). So how many people will join me? If this isn’t your last fat year then when will it be? Let’s all come together and make a resolution to be a healthier and sleeker version of our current selves. We CAN do this!!!
