Hello. I’m Fat.

I’m Sarah.  I’m fat.  I don’t see the sense in trying to pretty that statement up.  I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t the truth.  I don’t particularly suffer from low self-esteem.  I think that’s part of my problem.  If I were less confident about my appearance I might be more inclined to do something about it.  I’m comfortable and complacent at the weight I’m at.  I’ve grown accustomed to it.

So why am I dieting now?  Because I was at work a week ago and walked down one set of stairs, out the building, across a parking lot, into another building, up another set of stairs, to my desk and THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO DIE OF A HEART ATTACK!  I couldn’t catch my breath.  As I sat at my desk wheezing and sweating, I decided it might be time to do something about this extra 75 pounds I’m carrying around.

As if by magic, a Groupon appeared in my inbox for a weight loss program.  I’m not sure I’m ready to say which one, but I will say that it doesn’t involve shots or pills or anything artificial.  I’m not into that.  It’s a regular diet type of thing.  I decided it was a sign and clicked on the “buy” icon.

I started on Monday, May 13th.  My butt naked weight that day was 242.6 pounds (I’m 5 feet 7.5 inches).  This diet starts you out on a fruit only detox for three days before you start the normal diet.  It is day two and I’m eating my fruit.  I also took a bike ride for good measure last night.  4.6 miles according to MapMyRide.  I don’t weigh in until day four.

It’s a good start.  Now I just have to keep it up for the next year or so.  Sigh…  it’s hard not to be discouraged by that.
