Okay...I've finally had enough of jumping on & off the 'lose weight and get healthier' wagon. This time, it's for real. I'm tired of hearing my Wii call me obese all the time. I'm tired of getting out of breath from climbing a few stairs. I'm tired of just feeling generally 'icky' all the time.
But I don't just want to shed weight -- I want to be healthy and feel good at the end of it. So this isn't just about dieting -- it's about learning to eat better and to be more active. I know that I'm capable of doing what needs to be done -- now's the time to DO IT!
