Day 0: The Realization

It’s official. I’m overweight. In fact, I’m considered ‘obese’, which is another way of saying ‘time to get off the couch, fatty!’

There’s really nothing (or nobody) to blame except for myself. Out of all of life’s crazy things that we cannot control, weight is one of those things that we can control. Of course, with the recent birth of our twin boys (and our oldest, who is still in diapers), it is easy to say that I’ve lost control of the ‘healthy’ portion of my life. It’s the feeling of ‘everything else matters, except for myself’. However, when I look at our family, I realize that in order for me to be the best that I need to be to support them, the concept of ‘being healthy’ is the most important thing in the world.

To help the most important thing in the world, you must be the most important thing in the world.

I am ready to change. Bring it!
