Welcome to the The Shrinking Year site
Welcome to The Shrinking Year. In 2014 I plan to work hard at becoming healthier and fitter. This website is for my family and friends to share my journey. I am hoping that being accountable to you all will motivate me and discourage me from giving up. This is an important journey for me. I plan to document my progress on a weekly basis as 2014 unfolds. My first weigh in will be on 1st January 2014 and each week I will update the site.
I think the photos demonstrate better than any words I could use just what has happened in the last 10 years.
The first one on the left was taken in 2003 and the second one on the right was taken in 2013.
The difference is about 150 pounds.
This is what happens if you gain just 15 pounds a year in one decade.
Needless to say I'm very concerned now for my health. 2014 is the year I'm going to put this right. Within a year I plan to be a lot healthier and that will make me a lot happier.
Thank you for sharing this journey with me.
