It’s been about a full 2 years since I’ve been 100% committed to weight-loss. So much has changed since I was running and following Jillian Michaels diet plan. The most obvious change is that I’ve gained an unbelievable 80.5 pounds from my lowest point. That puts me at 26.5 pounds ABOVE what I started at in 2008. That’s a total of 4 years: 2 spent losing and the following 2 spent gaining.
So how on earth did I wander back after all this time? I’m a designer, and I often develop WordPress websites and blogs. So, today when I was nosing around on WordPress’ newly design homepage, I thought to myself, “I wonder what my old weight-loss buddies are up to?” Most of you guys have changed your websites or links, so I wasn’t able to find you. I’m sure that if I keep up on here, I’ll be able to find new fellow “losers.” I did see that a few of my old friends are still on the bandwagon, which is amazing. Congrats to you all!
I’ve been counting calories and considering exercise for a solid 2 weeks now. I’ve stopped using Weight Watchers, and instead I’ve been using the free Livestrong app, which functions almost exactly the same and seems to have a considerably better interface. If anyone want to use it, download it for iPhone!
Anyway, you’ll also be able to tell that I’ve updated my blog design. In short, I’m planning on re-using this old blog. Dusting it off, updating the information, and holding myself accountable to several weekly (if not daily) updates about my life and my progress in losing weight.
If you’ve got a weightloss blog, drop me a line. I want to have a nice robust “follow” group in my sidebar widget, so I’m super excited to find inspiration from other folks!
Anyway, I’m off to update my pages and get this blog back in shape, as well as myself. 🙂
