My blog, Confessions of a chubby girl, is brand new. I'm new here on 3FC but I look forward to journaling my progress and getting to know lots of interesting people along the way. I just started in my weight loss and I think being accountable to a blog that other people can read will motivate me. Like any other overweight person, I've dieted before and I've had successes and I've had failures. Hopefully fear of seeing my failures posted for everyone to read will encourage me to succeed this time around. I'm positive and motivated and I think this is the time that matters, not my past attempts. I have everything I need to make this work and this is the time I will do it. My starting weight was 330 (on 6/17/12) and I am 9 pounds down from that so far! 156 to go!
