the body project

confession time:
i am super insecure about my weight.  i hate it, really i do!  i miss out on opportunities, push people away, and spend most of my time wondering how skinny ani would handle different situations as they are presented throughout the day.  it sounds crazy, i know!

i've decided that my first project (after all, this blog is called the ani project) will be to get healthy.  i've already lost some weight this summer (12 pounds to be exact) by joining a running group, but i still have a long way to go.

I'm absolutely terrible at following through with things (see: running group mentioned above; also see: old blog, older blog, and oldest blog). gah terrible, i know! BUT this time is different! Yeah, yeah, that's what they all say (<-- that's you). no, i really mean it!  this time i will not hide my blog from the awesome people of the interweb *waves frantically at computer screen.* this time i will, however, hide it from my friends and family.

by staying semi-anonymous, i will be able to post as if no one is reading; because let's be honest, is anyone actually reading this? anyway, Get excited for lots and lots of super boring lame exciting health posts; coming soon to a computer screen near you.

when it comes to goals, how do you stay accountable?
