Welcome to From Flabulous to Fitastic!! This is just day 1, so not much to see, but my plan is to put myself out there and invite everybody to watch me go from my not-so-greatness to amazing. I’m not needing super-skinny or anything like that, I just want to get healthy and stay healthy. If a hot body comes along with that, then all the better. :o) I promise to be completely honest. I will be posting my beginning weight, my losses/maintenance/gains (hope not!!) at my weekly weigh-ins, which by the way, I am aiming for Thursdays for those. I also plan on posting recipes I find that I like, other fitness blogs that I enjoy, exercises that I try, etc etc etc. My hope in this is slightly self-serving....I want to get fit and if I have an audience I think that will help me. Ultimately I believe it is up to me to take care of me but encouragement never hurts either. But my main goal is to join the fitness community through the blogging world and hopefully to make a contribution myself too. I have been reading what other people have to say and it is all very inspirational. Not just to lose weight and get healthy, but to finally admit to how I got here and how I really feel about it. If I finally face all of that I believe I will stay on track this time and not only keep my weight down but remain healthy. I’ve been very fortunate that all these extra pounds I have packed on have not created other more serious health problems — like diabetes or heart problems — but I realize it is only a matter of time too. I sure aint gettin’ any younger! I don’t want to wake up one day with regret, knowing I should have made changes when I had the chance. So instead, I will wake up each day and remind myself that it is up to me to make a better me. I hope you enjoy reading what I have to say and I would love to see your comments, questions and suggestions!
