Why I Do This Here

Ok, Jacksh*t, Gettin' Fit asked for some notecard reasons why we want to lose weight, get fit, get healthy...ect.ect.

Here is my response - NOT for the faint of heart.

Sad, but true. Don't cry too hard cuz I've dealt with it.

See, I'm tougher than you know!

And that would be my nekkid, fat belly. You don't like it - don't look. I'm trying to be brutally honest and chronicle what it's really like to be fat and lose weight. I have many other reasons to lose, one of my other most important ones is my son, Logan. But those are on my Why I Want To Lose Weight page. I thought this was a little more blunt and personal. So there you have it, one day I will look back on this and smile!

Wow! Just wow! Because I have experienced similar pain, I did cry. I know how you feel. But as the other commenters said, this... THIS POST is the beginning of the end to that. That being the belly and everything it stands for. Emotions, hurt, pain, suffering, hiding, protection. You can do this. You will do this and I for one want to be here to watch. I want to see those things fall away and watch the beautiful inner you emerge because you ARE beautiful. Stretch marks and all. Lord knows most people have em. They are our battle wounds. :)
