Weight Check in

I won't be checking in daily with the weight just 1-2 times a week probably...

This mornings weight-in 256 lbs

So far this morning I've cleaned the 2 big cabins, walked up and down the hill several times while doing that.  Had a Maple French Toast bagel for b'fast (have only 2 left and won't buy more). Having a bowl of my Taco Beans and then walking the circle, which is about 1 mile.  Hope to start doing the circle 2-3 times a day... shooting for 2 times today.  And if the wind lets down I'll kayak some.

Self Challenge

According to my BMI I'm too short !!
I'm a big girl... I know this... In my non stop battle with the buldge... I have found I need "accountability" I'm puttin myself on a weight loss, tighten up, get in better shape, eat healthy, very public program... you can ignore these post if you wish or find ways to be encouraging.
I don't feel "fat" until I see pics of myself. So no time like the present to get my chit together...
I will never be Barbi, and I would not want to be... but I have gained way too much the last couple of years... so here is the starting stats... TODAY I weight in at 255... in a Size 22 jean and 24 tops... all of 2012-2013 I was hanging around 275 so I've done good so far in 2014.
Goal is... get to less than 200 lbs ... down to at least a size 16/18 jeans, tone arms/belly/hips, more reg. walking/hiking (at 1 mile most days, work up to maybe 5 miles a day), take up some form of yoga (probably will be the 5 rites Teena taught me), no (or very little) carbs, no sodas, GMO free (as much as possible), just a general eat fresh non processed foods.
Gettin the lil personal blender thingy to that will make one smoothie at a time... and then have them more often.
Once I get to the 200lb mark I want to learn to stand up on the stand up surf board thingy... and of course get one of my own.

I will get help taking some full body pics tonight and add to this post as "Before" pics
