It Starts Today - The Mission To Lose 130 Pounds

Today is the First day of the rest of my life.... seriously.  I have gained over 150 pounds since I said "I do" twenty-two years ago...  Today I really looked in the mirror and I realized that I have not only let my weight explode - I no longer trim my eye brows - hardly wear makeup - my hair is a long bushy mess with more gray hairs than I would like to count... I wear baggy unflattering clothes... I had given up - and today that stops.

This is what I want to accomplish:

I want to be able to sit in a booth in a restaurant without my boobs resting on the table.

I want to wear a shirt that does not look like a tent.

I want to go up my stairs and not gasp for breath.

I want strangers to look at me as a person and not an "it".

I want my husband to want me again.

I want my two teenage girls to be proud of me.

I want to be healthy...

Today I weigh 260 pounds - 130 to go...
