If you’ve stumbled upon this site randomly, I think it’s the Universe’s way of making our online paths meet somewhere here in cyberspace. Today I create this site, the 7th of June 2017, with the goal of documenting my journey to lose 20 pounds ASAP.
I’m a 40ish female who is currently 20 pounds overweight. How much do I weigh now? I have no idea. All I know is this: the last time I checked I was in the locker room of a certain water spa last September 2016. Back then, I calculated that I was 20 pounds overweight. So let’s just stick to 20. Sounds like a good whole number to begin with.
You see, the thing is, I used to be soooo thin! And with a voracious appetite, mind you. But then I realize, that was probably 20 years ago. Damn.
My slimness has disappeared. My voracious appetite is still here.
It’s 2017 and I am facing this reality: being overweight is kinda slowing me down. I feel sluggish. Carrying an extra 20 pounds wherever I go is like having 6 units of MacBook Air tied to waist and thighs!
More importantly, it has affected my health that I feel a sense of urgency to finally do something about it.
So writing about this (plus other diet and lifestyle modifications) is my attempt to finally lose ALL these extra pounds. I’m not too certain about this, but I’m gonna give it my best effort this time.
Every day, I will journal the things that I do, things that I eat, and other stuff.
If you’re still reading up to this point, I have a feeling you’ll be back tomorrow to read my next post. Perhaps just out of curiosity. Or maybe we’re in the same boat, and you’re also trying to lose weight.
If not, that’s okay. I will still be here until I achieve my goal to lose 20 pounds ASAP.
