The Start | My 180

The past two Tuesdays I’ve been glued to my TV watching NBC’s new show, Losing It with Jillian. If you’re not familiar with the show, take a peak here:

The end result of tears, sweat and a complete lifestyle change is a total 180.

Friday I had a conversation with my big brother Bill about my own 180. We mapped out a plan and set goals. The conversion, while extremely difficult to accept the truth at times, was exactly what I needed to motivate me toward a complete lifestyle change. By the end of the conversation I was determined to lose weight and get healthy. The end result will not only be a new body, but a new self-image.

Exactly one hour later I was at Palmetto Health Heart Hospital being treated for a heart attack. The doctors all said the same thing- I had but one option: A complete lifestyle change.

So, this begins my 180. I invite you to join me as I embark on the hard, but surely worthwile journey of obtaining a healthier and trimmer me. In the weeks ahead I’ll cronicle my thoughts, goals, struggles and achievements.
