You don’t know me. You may have found my blog through Yahoo!, or from Google. You may have seen a post I made on LinkedIn or on Twitter. Something caught your attention and brought you here, but what makes me trustworthy?
All I can say to that is that I’m an open book, and I share everything here, both good and bad, through my weight loss journey. When my weight is up, I write about it. When it’s back down, I write about it. I even blog about my running, and I blog when I skip runs. I try to be as transparent as I can, because I don’t want anyone to think that getting healthy and losing weight is simple for me. I don’t want to misrepresent my journey, or give anyone any false hopes or expectations about what to expect when they take on a project like getting healthy or losing weight.
I have posted many pictures in the past. Pictures of me before I got obese, while I was obese, and then all the way back down to where I am today. I went from 312 lbs to 165 lbs, on average (I’ve been as low as 160 lbs, but I just can’t seem to break into the 150’s. Yet). I will continue to post photos, not because I particularly like having photos of me online, but because I believe it is my proof, the evidence that I am who I say I am, and I’m doing what I say I’m doing.
