Day 1 - July 12, 2010

Well....this is the year I turn 40! I have decided to embark on what my friends think is crazy and that is a weightloss and wellness program and have you follow me. I am going to let my husband take a photo of me in a bikini in all my glorious 195 lbs and post it on this blog! The program is IsAgenix. The challenge is to get on this program and stay on it and experience maximum results. By the end of 365 days, my life should be completely different.

So a little bit about me and how and why I got here. Well, I was always one of those lucky girls who never have to think about what she ate. Got lots of exercise and didn't really think about it. Then.....wham! During my mid 20's all the bad eating and indulgences caught up and slowing that scale starting climbing. I always thought, "oh it's just 10lbs, just 20lbs, etc", "I take it off, no problem"....ha! It's quite a revelation to look at yourself in the mirror and realize that you have back fat! I mean, back fat...who every dreamed such a thing could exist!

Anyway now here it is almost 20 years later and I have finally decided to do something! Or perhaps more appropriately, my Ah moment was when my 3 1/2 year old daughter Kaitlyn, said to me last week...."Hey, big fat mummy, you have big fat boobies!" Yeah....I won't say anymore about that special moment.

My friend turned me onto IsAgenix. The program is simple. Cleansing the body of impurities on a daily basis by introducing supplements into one's daily diet. One day a week involves a full day cleanse. WHAT NO FOOD!!!! Well, my friend says it's delicious and easy....let's see. You are trying to sell this to the person who at times really sat in front of her refrigerator, unhinged her jaw and went to town!

Well folks, so it begins.....the picture of me as of this week will be posted shortly. Wish me luck!!
I am going to take measurements and weight weekly and post it here. My husband has gratefully agreed to continuing to take photos once a month in the same bikini so you can see the difference.
