I did it. I signed my life away and bought myself a personal trainer. I shouldn't say it like that, because he is a person and not a thing, but he did cost me a pretty penny. With his one-on-one attention I also get a personalized meal plan that I help design so we shall see how that goes.
I really want to work hard at this because my parents did help me pay for a lot of the cost and I really don't want to let them down. Even though I won't actually get my meal plan until next week, I've been really careful with what I have been eating and I'm down to 226 lbs on the scale in the bathroom, which I think is a little light, but after seeing it sit at 228 and 228.5 for a week or two, I'm glad that it's down now.
