Greg tells me he loves me and thinks I'm beautiful no matter my size. And I fully believe him. But I don't feel beautiful. I certainly don't feel sexy, which is negatively impacting some of the more *ahem* intimate aspects of our marriage.
So I told Greg I wanted to lose weight, and I wanted to set my birthday as my first target. My birthday is 11 weeks from tomorrow, and I set an A and a B goal. Goal A is to lose 15 pounds. Goal B is to lose 10 pounds. I'm aiming for the 15, but I will be happy with 10.
Today was Day 1. I did a starting benchmark workout. I'm planning to create a plan involving some free YouTube fitness videos, the free videos available through Amazon Prime, and that gym membership we're paying for. I also took my Day 1 photos. I will be honest and say I hate the side view. I almost changed my mind about posting the pictures, but I'll want them to compare later.
