Danielle's Fight

My name is Danielle and I'm obese. That's really hard to write, but it's true. I've struggled with my weight for several years. I yo-yo 100lbs year to year and that is not good! I'm tired. Just plain tired. Tired of feeling tired. So, I'm here, again.

Yes, I've been here before. I was able to lose 50lbs and be in the best shape of my life. Then I gave up. That's me. I try and I stop. I succeed and then I fail. It's really quite sad. You see, I know how to lose weight. I've done ...

Yes, I've been here before. I was able to lose 50lbs and be in the best shape of my life. Then I gave up. That's me. I try and I stop. I succeed and then I fail. It's really quite sad. You see, I know how to lose weight. I've done it. But I've lacked consistency. What's strange is, this is the only aspect of my life that I'm this way. I'm a great mom, a great wife and a great manager at work. So why can't I be great for me and my health?

I can make a million excuses; I work 50hr weeks; I have anxiety/stress; I don't sleep well; Money is tight; I've got 2 kids that keep me busy; My husband has disease that sometimes makes him useless; I don't have time to do anything; I don't feel well; I'm surrounded by junk food at work; EVERYONE HAS AN EXCUSE. Excuses are easy. It's easy to not do something. It's easy to blame your own actions on the world, life, etc. At the end of the day, there is nobody to blame for my situation but myself.

I stepped on the scale this morning for the first time in about 6 months. I've been avoiding the scale, as I knew in my heart that I'm now the heaviest I have ever been. I'm sick, simply sick that I've allowed myself to get so out of control. I know I'm killing myself with this weight. So here I am, ready to fight! I'm fighting for me, because I deserve to live, I deserve to be happy, I deserve to feel good about myself. My gloves are on and I'm stepping into the ring- ready to knock this weight out!!

I am back!! I am going to try to get myself moving on this again! I have gained allot of weight back and I am just not happy with myself at all right now. No one to blame but me making excuses. So, let's see how this goes!

Wow, I would never have guessed that loading the dishwasher was such a hazardous activity! Maybe I should try to convince the hub that someone needs to take over dish duties to save my back....

You're right, these kids grow up much too fast! I envy you your little ones. I know you have your hands full with juggling everything, but it's such a sweet time, being a mother when the kids are little. And looking back, those years flew by much too quickly!
