2nd Chances

Well, yesterday marked the beginning of the Biggest Loser's Season 8, one in which the theme is Second Chances. Dc and I did some quick thinking and discussion and decided that this was the time for our second chance and time to get rid of the weight once and for all. Tuesday marked the beginning of a new session of WW for her, the first night of BL - so why not start on Tuesday.

We decided to recruit some people with us on our journey, so DC's sister is joining the fun as well as C. Whoohooo. DC and I are in the process of updating our old journey website so you can head on over there and watch our journey!!!

I got on the scale and had an ugly number stare back at me....187.8. So close to 200 lbs, it is sad. I would never imagine in my life that I would be this big and not having a pregnancy to blame it on. But, I don't have any excuses outside of not working out and not caring what I put in my mouth.

The sad reality is that I am so big that I can't fit into 90% of my closet, a closet that is packed with clothes. I think I might wear the same outfits to work every week because that is what fits. It is hard to believe that a little over a year ago, I was in great shape and down to a size 10. Ugh! But, it is what it is and I am ready to make the changes necessary. I will reclaim my closet one article of clothing at a time!!!!
