The Top 3 Things I Learned After Putting Myself on Blast

There are several things I learned after doing yesterday’s post and putting myself on blast. The biggest lesson is that it’s scary as hell to let people see your flaws, but if you push past fear and take a risk you just might be surprised at the reward. Or, if there’s no reward at least the world won’t end. We’re still here, right?

I did, however, end last night with three eye-opening revelations. They are:

I’ve got to DO THE DAMN thing now. Um, duh. Not that I wasn’t planning on making it happen anyway, ahem, but I REALLY have got to “go hard or go home” now. Accountability is just lovely, isn’t?

My peeps are AWESOME. OK, this isn’t eye-opening, I already knew it, but the INCREDIBLE support I received yesterday from all of you leaving comments here, on Facebook, Twitter and in real life is truly inspiring. You guys motivate me to be the best that I can be and I thank you for it.

And, finally …

My stomach is PALE and needs some sun. Did you see that picture? The poor thing never sees the light of day. Y’all make sure I get some self-tanner before I breakout that bikini.

Winks & Smiles,

Do you know, I have looked at myself in the mirror exactly SIX times since you posted your photo and I still don't have the balls you have girl! Although, I'm feeling committed and after posting a photo of my hubby and I from 1993 for my WW I'm even more motivated. I'm skeerdy....

YOU GO LoLo! I am in awe of you and know you'll accomplish your goals! I'm inspired (but not enough to post my own before pictures-at least not yet-I have on a little less clothing in mine. LOL!) Looking forward to following you on your journey!

Accountablility is a good thing! We're all out here rooting for you!

I'm been reading, but this is my first time commenting. You're awesome! A hearty clap for baring it all and putting yourself out there. You WILL be in your bikini and looking GREAT by 40!

Thanks, Ladies! I'm finally getting over the shock that I actually did it. I'm good as long as I don't look at the picture - LOL!
