The numbers in the open

I have never been comfortable discussing my weight. Not in a general, 'you have put on so much weight' way and definitely not the specifics. But this time, inspired by many bravehearts out there, I am going to do it. So here is the truth out in the open. Deep sigh.

Starting weight : 72 kgs
Target weight : 65 kgs by 1st of March, 2010

7 kilos in 4 months. Very, very doable. If only I can stick to my plan. I intend to. It's just not a matter of choice any more.

Why this blog?

Anyone who sees me today will find it difficult to believe I was a skinny child. And yet, 20 odd years of bad eating later, here I am bordering on obesity. How I HATE that word!

I have made several attempts in the past to get back into shape. Some attempts have fizzled out even before it got off the ground. Some gave me modest results for a time before I gave up. This time around, no half-hearted attempts would do. I am fighting for my health.

This blog is my way of holding myself accountable to my commitment to lose weight. Hopefull, it will help and inspire some of you to do the same.

I start this blog weighing in at 71 kgs, 5 months after the birth of my daughter. My sugar levels are just reaching a point where, if I do not pay some serious attention to them, could put me in deep shit. story begins here...hopefully it will lead down a slimmer, healthier path. Stay with me...and pray for me!!
