Day 1 of 60lbs

60 pounds is a lot of weight...
but
{I AM}
going to lose that
in 6 months.
And today marks day
UNO.

The few I have told it too have given a smirk, a gasp, a "it won't happen", and an "ok, I am with you all the way" ( that being from my superman hubs)... you see it helps to have superman by your side encouraging you... rather than dis-couraging you in this seemingly challenging undertaking. But... when I told my mom... she simply said, " Do you really know how much body percentage that is?" I replied, "Nope. and I don't care." -you see I will be careful and I will do it appropriately but in that moment the determination was at a strong point, quite possible {THE} strong point- She then quickly came back with " oh, you have the stubborness of your mother and the determination of your father."- a deadly combination I tell you- DEADLY.
I am not that great of a blogger... but after watching "Julie and Julia", I thought... you know... this could be a great way to hold me accountable and maybe obtain some fans/readers to help and encourage me along on this journey. I am going to try and post often... I would like to say daily- atleast 5 days a week, but there is no telling what lies ahead. So, before I make too many promises I will try and do my best and post often.
I really like her... she is an inspiration to me in so many ways ( minus the playboy posing and singled out days)

This is your mom and of course you will make it to your goal. There never was a doubt in my mind. I am proud to call you my daughter. You do have a real live superman for a husband and I am glad that he is your life partner. You are also a fantastic mom. Thanks for being my daughter.
Love Mom
