Weigh-in Wednesday

I've been meaning to do this post for a couple weeks now.  2 weeks ago I chickened out and last week I was sick.  This week I have no excuse.  (Say it with me: proactive... proactive... proactive... proactive)

I really need to lose some weight.  Well, not just "some" weight- at least 40 pounds.  I am, admittedly, a fan of reality TV and a new season of The Biggest Loser just started.  What's the first thing they do on the show and then the big moment they work towards each week?  Everyone stands on the scale and shows the world their weight.  In the name of being proactive, I've decided that once a week I'll weigh in and post my weight on the blog.  My own little version of The Biggest Loser.  Hopefully it will give me extra accountability and motivation to stay the course. 

It's a bit scary to put myself out there like this, to admit how heavy I've become.  But then I realized that if you know me in person you might not know the number on the scale but you already know how big I am.  If you don't know me in real life then really, why should I care that you know my weight?

Oh, and sorry but you're not getting a photo in a sports bra and spandex shorts ala The Biggest Loser to go with the number.  I'm not that brave!

Here goes:
