Where we begin

Square one, people. Although I'm probably closer to square two, having been at it for about a year.

Got on the scale today, and just about did a little dance ... the smallest number I've seen in years popped up on the little digital display of happiness: 230.5. Not a number I'm proud of, not something that thrills me, but it's mine and I've worked hard at it and let's face it ... it's a WAY smaller number than the 285 we started with.

I put on the prettiest bra today, and it fit. No, I'm not going to post a picture.

So happy Wednesday, people. Today's plan is to head to the gym after work and get some great cardio in. I'm tracking my food, although not flawlessly, and I'm really doing things I enjoy with my body. Walks at lunch, classes or equipment at the gym ... I love the range of activities I can indulge in! And soon, the outdoor pool at the gym will be open and I will spend many a summer Saturday, stretched out on a lawnchair, imagining I'm at a posh resort and feeling the warmth of the sun.

Life is good.
