Not tomorrow. Today.

The goal is simple: lower my body weight from 220 pounds to 160 pounds.

When I went for my annual physical, I weighed in at 220 pounds. I know I have been gaining weight for a while, and the last several months of work and school (and zero exercise) have only made that worse. But knowing I weigh 220 pounds? Damn. That is unbelievable to me.

For me, this has to be my line in the sand. Enough. I can either get myself back on track or give up altogether. And giving up is not my style. So, all that's left for me to do is quit thinking about it and start fixing it.

And my mantra? I'll never again be as overweight as I am at this moment.
