Starting Gun

Well, today’s the first day of the rest of my life.  Or, at least, the first day of the rest of the year that I’ve committed $100/month to Precision Nutrition.


The sign-up for the July group came at the exact time that I needed it to; earlier or later and I might not have realized how perfectly this might work for me.  I had been struggling, really working hard just to get moving every day, and the invitation to join appeared – like magic – in my Inbox.  I knew that it was something that I needed to jump on … the glimmer of hope that I could change my life cemented by concrete action.

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve gained 30 pounds.  I’m not entirely sure how this is possible (ask me if I’ve ever lost 30 pounds in 7 months…), but it happened, trust me. The goal is to lose weight (of course), but more than that, I just want to be fit and healthy and happy again.

So – I’m all in.  The program starts easily enough — a workout and some lessons to read, introductions all around, and figuring out my way around the website and forums.  PN preaches learning by a habit at a time, with the theory being that most life changes fail because people take on more than they can chew (except in my case, I suppose I was always able to chew it… that’s probably how that 30 pounds ended up on my hips…).

This weeks habit?  Start taking fish oil and probiotics.  I’m naturally skeptical, and question how much good this is going to do, but I promised myself that I would do everything they said.  They’ve had a lot of success stories, and if I do what they say and I’m *not* a success, well, then I can get my money back.  Good deal, right?
