I am 41 years old and been married for 12 years. I have struggled with being overweight my whole life. I have Poly cystic Ovary Syndrome, which makes the weight loss harder because of the insulin resistance it causes.

Back in 2006 I was able to lose 30 pounds here on sparkpeople which allowed me to finally get pregnant with my son.

My son was born in 2007 and ever since then I have had a hard time getting the weight off. I have realized that I do a lot of negative thinking and that my thinking may actually be my biggest obstacle to my weight loss. I know I really need to get back on track and focus on getting healthy and not let the stresses of life, or those negative thoughts that tell me I can't do this win. It is time to win this battle.

In 2014 and 2015 I lost a bunch a weight and got down to around 197. It felt so good to be in onderland, but then I had some financial challenges, anxiety and depression issues, and then I made the decision to go back to school making life very busy for me. I completely got off track. I haven't been exercising, drinking enough water, getting enough sleep or eating right and now I am struggling with my weight and struggles that come from being overweight. It is now time to change.

I am making a commitment to myself to change. I'm really hoping that 2017 is going to be my year!

    My message to help motivate you & ( Especially ) Me this week is

    “Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.”
    – Stacey Charter

    Have a Fabulous Week !!!
