Janet

I am currently working on changing my lifestyle. I am overweight and have blamed it on pregnancies for years. Now my youngest child is 8 and the excuse is old.

When I was younger, I always said I did not want to be overweight like many of the people I know. However, here I am weighing more than those people do. I have seen the stress the weight has put on their bodies and the health issues they have had due to that weight. I don't want to go through the same thing.

I have recently noticed my children picking up my same eating habits and immediately want to break these habits. The best way...be an example.

I took a break due to some illness and injuries but am back and ready to go!

I have started and stopped my attempt to lose weight so many times it is ridiculous. I am commited this time to making a lifestyle change.

Other Information:
I love music of all kinds. I play the piano and would love to learn guitar but haven't managed that yet.

I am tired of being fat and the effects it has had on my life.

Thanks for the blog love and support. You are right, you have those days. I have been having one too many of those and then people can't always relate b/c everyone doesn't have kids or if they did, they had them at a different time in their lives so they may of stood home. It's hard some days.

"Defeat may test you; it need not stop you. If at first you don't succeed, try another way.
For every obstacle there is a solution. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
The greatest mistake is giving up."
