Getting Started...

with a blog that is. I've been working on this losing weight thing for, well pretty much forever. I've had some successes and some that I wouldn't call that, but it's all a learning process. My reason for starting this blog is accountability. I'm hoping that by typing things out I can be honest to both myself, and readers of the blog, should I eventually get some.
I'm starting this out on a not so positive note of having a stomach bug, so my eating is a bit irregular at the moment, but I'm hoping to get back to "normal" tomorrow.
I'll be posting my workout schedule, a starting point with a menu, along with a weekly small goal. I believe the way to achieve my ultimate goal (which is a multi-step one) begins with one small goal at a time. Achievable goals at that.
Look for more short posts to come in the future until I get used to this whole blogging thing. My goal for this week (since it's already Thursday) is to have a feasible menu planned out for next week, and to work on getting this blog set up and easy to navigate!


  1. Welcome to the blogging world! :) Best of luck to ya! Meal planning is KEY for me to stay on top of things- great job getting started there! :)

  2. Welcome to the madness Mandy. It's a great big wonderful world and I'm sure your gonna meet and get loads of inspiration.

  3. Welcome! I am excited to watch your journey. You have picked a good way to go about it. There are so many great supportive bloggers out there :)

  4. Welcome to our big happy family!!! Well, sometimes we're not all happy ... but it's pretty much a guarantee that when we're not someone will swoop in to brighten the mood or at least give us an ear to scream into until we feel better!

  5. Blogging has definitely helped me get out of denial and into accountability. (Don't hate me later)

    Have fun! You've got a great start.

  6. Welcome!

    It's up and down, but never boring!


  7. Welcome! I wish you much success! =)
