New Year, Same Resolution: Weight Loss

It's 2011. I'm sure all the blogs are talking about their personal resolutions. Why would mine be different? Weight Loss is the topic of choice. It seems to be my goal every month, every year... every day I resolve to make better eating choices and exercise more. How is it that I have such a battle with being fit?

I took some simple measurements today to mark the beginning of my progress. The numbers don't scare me like they used to and I'm not embarrassed to put it out into the universe because these numbers ARE NOT me! They are not a reflection of who I want to be. I thought I did a video but husband did not hit the RECORD button. Irritating! Nevertheless... here are my numbers... video to follow tomorrow.

Dress Size: 20W
Starting Weight: 263.6 pounds
Waist measurement at the navel: 45"
Neck: 19 1/2"
Thigh: 28 1/4"

Husband and I did the fitness test as part of the Insanity exercise system. (I bought a burned copy off craigslist.) I did pretty good.

My goal weight is 200 pounds and a size 10/12. I would like to reach this by the end of April 2011. Doable? Totally!!!
