Be My Fitness Witness.

I'm just going to come out and say it: I have gained 20 pounds. Before I got married, weight was never an issue for me. I always ate what I wanted and I worked out occasionally but I wasn't super hard core into because to be honest, I didn't need to. I had been the same weight since 9th grade. Gaining 20 pounds has been really hard on me. I've always been pretty skinny and I'm not calling myself fat by any means, but I definitely need to get back into shape. I had to throw out so many pairs of jeans because I couldn't get them past my thighs anymore... It's emotionally damaging and I want to take control of this before it takes control over me.
But my problem is I lack motivation. I doubt myself a lot and I just can't get myself to get off my butt and do something about it. I complain, complain, and even complain some more and I get no where (obviously). So this is where I need your help. I know there has to be someone or multiple people out there who just need someone to say: "You can do it! You're great. Keep going." I need and want someone to help me lose this weight and become happy with the body that my Father in heaven has blessed me with.
So I have a proposition. I'm going to call it "Fitness Witness" because I can't come up with a better name and really, I just need someone to hold me accountable and be my "witness." I've made a goal to do something active for 60 minutes a day. I can break it up 30 here, 30 there. I can go on a walk, do aerobics, play just dance... I can do anything that is getting my heart rate up and making me sweat for at least 60 minutes a day. I also want to lose 10 pounds in 2 months (but first, is that healthy? I don't want to die..).
For anyone who wants to join me in this challenge, here's my plan for you. You e-mail me and tell me your goals. Example: 30 minutes of working out each day and 10 pounds lost in 2 months or maybe you want to work out 4 hours a week and have a healthy diet plan or maybe you want to do the a mile a day challenge. I dono, it's YOUR plan. You can do whatever you want. Then every Friday you e-mail me and tell me your progress and I'll keep track of it all. Then at the very end, I'll send out little "You did it! I'm so proud." little trinket. Because who doesn't like being rewarded? This way it's kind of like I'm working out with someone even though I'm really not. I want to be there for you! I want to support and maybe even challenge you.
Is anyone up for this challenge or should I just go back to eating? Email me if so! I would love for this to work. My email: email@example.com. I'm excited to hear from you.
