Days 352 – 365 ONE YEAR of Facing MY FAT 2017

Days 352 – 365 ONE YEAR of Facing MY FAT 2017 – January 12 to January 25, 2017 – I’m back after a short break and ready to re-cap my progress over the past year.  As my first year wraps up,  my commitment to losing weight will continue throughout 2017. This year, I have a PLAN.

Celebrating 1-Year Facing MY FAT

I can hardly believe that one year has gone by since I made the decision on January 25, 2016, to “Face MY FAT.” On that date, I stared at myself in the mirror and I knew that it was time to do something, anything, about my excess weight. My weight was up to 175-pounds. My face was full, my clothes were tight, and my self-esteem was low. I was miserable.


Bottoms Up!

Bottoms Up! by Joyce L. Vedral, Ph.D. GETTING READY

Bottoms Up! by Joyce L.. Vedral, Ph.D. GETTING READY – The year is 2017. My age is 58. What am I thinking, starting a weight routine at my age? Call me crazy but I don’t care. I’ve got to do something  and I’m thinking its high time that I renew my commitment to working out with Joyce L. Vedral’s Bottoms Up!  I did it once before and I am going to do it again.

I am going to commit to working out to gain muscle while reducing body fat. It’s a win-win as far as I can see and Joyce’s Bottoms Up! is my book of choice to get started. I turned to this book in my mid-30’s and I’m turning to it once again.



Days 352 – 365 ONE YEAR of Facing MY FAT 2017

As you’ve probably noticed, Facing MY FAT has a “new look” and feel. Similar to splurging for a new outfit when dropping  a size, I thought it appropriate to give my blog a new look for 2017. I hope you like it and find it easy to navigate.

Look for me to blog twice a week in 2017. At this time, I’m not setting specific days. In addition to blogging about weight loss in general (as I have in the past), I also will touch base on the Bottoms Up! workout.

I’ve also decided to forego posting my weight UNTIL I reach 5-pound, weight loss increments. Working out with weights can temporarily increase my weight. That might be confusing especially since I am trying to lose weight, not gain.

I invite you to share Facing MY FAT blog posts and pages on your Facebook page, Pinterest, Twitter, etc.

Your promotion of my blog and my web sites as shown below is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for joining me for “Year Two” in 2017 as I continue…..

Facing MY FAT,
