If you change nothing, nothing will change

It's easy to say you're too tired, too stressed, too busy, too this or too that. Too bad. The only way you'll strip away the fat is to start by stripping away the excuses. -- Dr. Oz & Dr. Roizen- "You on A Diet"

It seems that the longer I am on this journey, the less it becomes about losing weight and the more it becomes about finding myself and my strength.

It seems that the longer I am on this journey, the less it becomes about losing weight and the more it becomes about finding myself and my strength.
I am learning that taking care of myself first is a huge priority and I need to be happy in order to be successful. With, or without, the support of my husband, I will find my happiness and I will become a healthier person because of it.

This is my time now and no one is going to stand in my way. Saboteurs beware; I am strong enough to overcome your temptations! Why you ask? The answer is simple: Because I deserve it! When I want to give up, I remind myself of that fact. My life has been centered around taking care of everyone else and their needs. The time has come to re-discover myself and find that healthy, happy woman that I know exists beneath the surface. No more excuses! A little less talk and a lot more action!
