Losing the First 100

What better way to start a blog than a few videos! Some of you may already know me, but not necessarily know what my health goals have been.  And some of you may be getting to know me for the very first time. 

I've thought about sharing my progress for a while now.  In fact, I've recorded a couple videos with the intention of doing a series of them...but that didn’t go too far.  Writing, on the other hand, I did a lot of.  Notes here and there, even a few pictures - all with the intent of not only revisiting them for myself, but eventually sharing some of the things that I learn which could hopefully be useful for others.  

So let's take a look back at my first video (Recorded on 11/15/13, at 15 lbs lost)....

At that point in time things seemed doable, but a long road ahead and the idea of sharing it through a blog started to form.  But then more time went by – making some changes, falling back into old habits, making more changes....and I never really did anything with it.

Then after a number of months, I really started to feel some changes - physically and in mindset.  So I decided to make another video (Recorded on 9/15/14, at 57 lbs and 4 inches lost)

The biggest thing I was learning at that point was that I had to figure out what was going to work for me, and adjusting when things didn't always go so well.  It became even more important to me to share my thoughts and not only give others ideas on what to try for themselves, but also give some insight into what the process is like for someone who is completely changing their lifestyle.

So, here I am 8 months later....only this time I'm getting that first post up.....tonight!  I don't know why but for a long time I was hung up on the name of the website.  I think I had a list of almost 200 names going.  Then it came to me.  I realized how far I had already come in terms of healthy changes, but that I was only mid-way through the first 100 pounds.  Yes, there would be more to lose after that, but the focus now is the challenges of achieving that first goal.  And so, was born. 

Thanks for reading! More posts will be coming soon!
