My quest at finally shedding 100 pounds or more. Good days or bad, weight up or down, exercised or not, I want to blog about it to for the next 12-20 months. Why the next 20 months. I figure if I lose 5 pounds a month, it will take me 20 months. I'm hoping by doing this, not only will it hold me more accountable, but will help me figure out what triggers my downfalls.

Tubby & Tubing Don't Mix
I have always loved to go tubing. Down a river, around a lazy river or behind a boat, it's all fun to me. The problem always was, how to get in the tube gracefully. News Flash! When you are 100 pounds overweight, there is no graceful way to get into a tube. I would have to get on the tube from a side of a deck, off from steps and have someone holding onto the tube. Not only that but, once I was on the tube, it's not a pretty sight either. I pretty sure I looked like a beach whale. What I realized this summer after losing so much weight, was I can actually jump. I can now, jump up on the tube all by myself. No more do I need a team of helpers to hold my tube still, while I try to slide my body onto the tube. Even though I still have 20 plus pounds to lose, I no longer resemble a whale. It's more like a tubby seal. You may wonder why in the world I'm blogging about such a silly little thing? It's all the little accomplishments that keep me going. I look forward to trying new things now. Things that I had all but given up trying, because I either couldn't do it, or I felt funny being so fat doing it. Who knows maybe next summer I'll even try to water ski.
