My weight gain has been gradual. So gradual that it has been pretty easy for about the past 10 years for me to ignore and deny what was happening with my body. I'm tired of being 'The Fat One' though.

My children are both older (20 and 13) so I can't really say this is baby fat any longer. Because they are older, I can't say that I want to lose weight so that I can more fully enjoy their childhood. Still, I do love my children, and I want to enjoy a better quality of life ...

My children are both older (20 and 13) so I can't really say this is baby fat any longer. Because they are older, I can't say that I want to lose weight so that I can more fully enjoy their childhood. Still, I do love my children, and I want to enjoy a better quality of life with them from this day forward.

My husband and I have dreams of traveling throughout this beautiful nation of ours. I want to be healthy and fit when we begin our explorations. I've also been greatly blessed to be married to this man who, for more than two decades, has loved me 'as is' -- whether I've been thin or fat. Although that is a great blessing in my life, I also want to lose weight for him. I think he and I both deserve to have people look at him and say, "Wow, your wife looks great", instead of looking at him and wondering what he sees in me.

I've wasted too much time on excuses and denial. Now it's time for me to get serious and lose this weight. With help from my friends, and help from the Lord, I know I'll be able to achieve my goals.

No worries -- I know better than to starve myself (after all, my butt didn't get this big from starvation -- LOL!).

This morning I was rushed. No time for a good breakfast. Didn't have healthy snacks on hand at work. So I took an early lunch.

I'm really proud of myself at the moment. Someone announced this afternoon that there were donuts in the back of the office. The two left in the box happened to be two of my favorites - a blueberry, and a chocolate. It felt really good to walk past those donuts and get my blueberries and water out of the fridge for my afternoon snack. emoticon

If you are hungry, you should eat something. Find something healthy-- a banana, baby carrots with hummus, a Fiber One bar, yogurt...

I actually place my Yoplait Light yogurts in the freezer and about 20 minutes before I want to munch on it, it's thawed a little-- creamy and slushy goodness!

Keep on track and best of luck to you!
