Getting Active August– Monthlong Post

I know that I have been slacking I have been meaning to post sooner but I have been having serious case of WRITER’S BLOCK. But allow me to get candid for a moment. This is just the beginning of a new chapter for me because I admit that I am very overweight and I need to lose a bit of weight for health purposes.

I am posting this on here so that there is a little bit of accountability, and so I can share my highs and lows, and share this uphill battle with you – my valued readers. I will be posting other posts to my blog as well but this will be my first “series” post that I will continue posting to.

After August is over I will do another post to follow this so that you can follow my progress each month, updated weekly.

I will post an update to this post weekly talking about how I feel and an update photo, what I like and what I slacked on, etc. I will also post what I did food wise, exercise, etc. below is my starting photos so that you can see the changes.
