I’m here mainly because of this photo:


That’s my lovely fiance and I at Salem Sue in Salem, ND just about a month ago. We, along with 3 of our friends, drove from our home in Vancouver, BC to Saint Paul, MN – because we’re clearly insane. I’m around 370 lbs in that picture, which is the most I’ve ever weighed. And will be the most I’ve ever weighed!

There are 300 days until our wedding day. I have never loved a human being more in my life than I do him.

My plan is positivity – as long as I put in an effort, I’m not going to beat myself up too much about the results, and I think that’s the best approach I’ve taken to weight loss thus far. Oh yeah – did I mention that this isn’t my first time (OH SCANDALOUS)? I’ve tried Weight Watchers, low-protein (I know – wtf?), low-carb, fasting, South Beach, No Diet… umm.. and probably a lot more than that, but those are the ones I can remember. The least amount I’ve weighed in my adult life is 288 lbs, and that was in 2003.

So… a while ago.

Anyhow – I’m excited to get started!
