I started this weight loss journey over 1 year ago and much to my dismay, I've made very little progress. I've been fooling myself that this would be an easy process, and life has thrown me several obstacles that I allowed to defeat me. I'm a 48 year old wife and mother of 2, and I work full-time (long hours; long commute).

Over the past couple of years, I've let lifes obstacles derail any efforts I had towards losing weight. Everything from injury, to surgery, to just a plain lack of motivation has been thrown at me and I've let those things derail me and even cause me a little depression.

But I'm ready for a new beginning. I know that I can lose the weight, and I now realize that hiding in the shadows and quietly watching isn't getting me anywhere. So I'm setting new goals and I'm going to push myself out of my comfort zone a little at a time.
