Today is the Day!

Ok so the title of my profile says, "Get the Skinny on the Plus Sized Professional" Now at the time I started this blog I was honestly, around 220. It was the highest weight that I had ever been in my entire life. I had 9 months till my wedding and I didn't want to be a fat bride. So in 3 months I lost 35 pounds and kept most of it off till the wedding. Where I sill was large according to most people at 198, and still plus sized. I worked out 1-2 hours a day 5 days a week and was a religous follower of Weight Watchers.... I looked HOT on my wedding day.

It's been 11 months, 3 weeks, 4 days, and 3 hours since my wedding last year. In that time I have gained exactly 53 pounds. So now, I'm at my highest weight I have ever been in my life, 243 pounds. I'm sorry but I must be honest, that is HUGE!

So someone a few days ago ran across my blog and was so nice to tell me that I was hot. Well actually I WAS hot. The photo on my blog profile is 53 pounds ago. So BEHOLD what I acually look like now (on a Friday night after 8 hours of work and driving in traffic.)

So now to the point of this baring of my soul. I've had enough! 3/4 of the clothes I own don't fit me. I shop at Lane Bryant. I've gone to a "not so bad" size 12/14, to a belly busting size 20/22. I can't even shave my legs properly anymore!!!

So here is where I set goals:

1) I will work out at least 30 minutes 5 days a week.

2) I will stay on my weight watchers plan, eat only the points allowed for the day and no flex points (flex points are for pussies).

3) I will drink 8 glasses of water daily.

Mini Goals:

5/30 Memorial Day, -3 pounds (240)

6/19 Father's Day, -6 pounds (237)

7/4 Independence Day, -9 pounds (234)

10/5 Labor Day, -18 pounds (216)
