"A Journey of a thousand miles begins with one step"

I am a daughter, sister, aunt, friend, caregiver, leader and a director, but one thing I am not is a healthy person. I have struggled with my weight most of my life, starting back to about 13 years old. As I look back at my childhood, I was really chubby in junior high, lost a lot of weight in high school to get to my healthiest weight of 139 and after high school, I gradually started to add the pounds back on until I reached my heaviest weight of 242 lbs at 27 years old.

My turning moment that I knew I needed to lose this weight not wanted to lose weight when my boyfriend, Dan woke me up scared because I was breathing rapidly than all of a sudden stopped and I became quiet for a few seconds. I know just what happened, my weight is causing me to suffer from sleep apena, meaning I stop breathing at night. The other thing that my weight is affecting is my blood pressure. I took my blood pressure one saturday morning and it read 158/124, 86 pulse. That scared the living day lights out of me because I took that right when I woke up.
My weight loss journey is a much needed journey to take to give myself a better quality of life. However, this is going to be one of the hardest things I will ever have to do.

"The finish line is not the end. The finish line is the beginning. Standing at the starting line gives you permission to hope. Taking the time to train, putting in the mileage, making the changes in your life, and taking the risks has given you consent to hope for the best in yourself. The miracle is not that you finished, but that you had the courage to start." ~ John Bingham

Here is a little poem that I found in Womans World :)

You're more than good enough! We all go through spells when we feel like we dont measure up. But you do! You are likable and lovable. You are capable and creative. You are strong and brave. For all those reasons and more,you're the kind of person who should feel great about herself,because there's simply no excuse not to!

Always remember that you light up the word!

Well my friend I have to ride emoticon my happy butt to my next friends page and tell them hello too. You have a super week...and if the emoticon come dont tell him that I took his fruit and veg you see that my next door neighbor. Peace and Love,Sonia
