My Worst Critic..

..is me. That said, I'm not happy with what I look like without my shirt on. In fact I've been a bit embarrassed to go around in public without it on for years now. I don't want to be "that fat guy" everyone is staring at. Or Mr. ManBoobs, or Dr.McFattyFat, or whatever else you can come up with. I'm tired of it and its time to take control.

I'm a pretty active person normally. I like to bike, hike, and kayak among other things. I also don't pay much attention to what I eat and well, I like to indulge. I'm now 30, and every winter for the past, oh, 10 years, I've put on weight when I'm not outside doing the above said activities. I've had plans to change things, but eventually everything always fizzles at some point and I end up finding myself looking in the mirror in February and wondering what happened.

This blog is now here to remind me that I need to do something about it, stick to the plan, watch what I eat, exercise, etc etc. It's also here to hopefully serve as a record of where I stand now, and what I want to achieve. Or should I say, what I WILL achieve.

You'll be amazed at how much easier it is to stick with this when you have such a great group of people to support you (and for you to support as well).

Hey Brian, welcome aboard. Billy pointed me to your blog. As Kristen said, having a support system on this journey is amazing. We'll be cheering you on.

Welcome aboard Brian. This is a great group of people that have never had nothing but positive things to say. We all have that same thing in common and joining together via the blogs has helped many people obtain their goals and success. What effort you put into this group you will get back 4X. I know "Plans are for Fools" but don't forget to plan your meals and plan your activities etc :).

Thanks for the all positive comments guys!

As far as "Plans are For Fools", I obviously dont really think that. It's actually a quote from an episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force that got stuck in my head when I was creating this blog, heh.

Anyhow, thanks again.
