It's Time...

I have decided that it is finally time for me to drop this weight so that I can start living my life!
I feel like maybe I should introduce myself to you on here. So here goes...
I'm 28 and have been overweight my WHOLE life. When I say my WHOLE life this is no exaggeration! I was 10 pounds when I was born, so I have literally always been overweight. I can remember as a little girl coming out of my doctors appointments my mom would be crying because the doctor told her I was ...

I'm 28 and have been overweight my WHOLE life. When I say my WHOLE life this is no exaggeration! I was 10 pounds when I was born, so I have literally always been overweight. I can remember as a little girl coming out of my doctors appointments my mom would be crying because the doctor told her I was overweight and made her feel like she failed me as a mom. In my opinion this was not the case. We never really had a lot, so when my mom would go grocery shopping she would buy what was cheapest. The cheapest food is not always the best food for you. So needless to say I didn't eat well growing up and, that continued in to my adult life. I always do what's easiest and fastest, which is usually fast food. I would stop for breakfast on my way to work in the morning and stop for dinner on my way home from work at night.
I do have to say that I come from a very large family that is full of love so I never feel less than. They always make sure that I know that I'm beautiful and Loved!! Maybe this doesn't do much to help me want to lose weight, because I feel like there is nothing wrong with the way I look. I used to always tell myself that as long as they make cute clothes in my size I'm just fine the way I am, but it seems that the cute clothes are just getting bigger and bigger (as am I).
I have come to realize that I have avoided doing a lot of things that I want to do because of my weight and insecurities. I would love to travel more, but I don't want to be the fat girl on the plane making everyone else uncomfortable in their seats. I love going to sporting events but am always uncomfortable in the seats and I feel bad for the people sitting next to me because I'm all in their personal space...so, with all that said I have decided that 2011 will be the year that I finally shed all the excess! It's so much more than just a New Years resolution. I need to get healthy. I need to slim down so I can go to those sporting events and get on a plane without worrying if people are thinking "I hope she doesn't sit next to me" but mostly I need to do it so I can be happy, fall in love and have babies (before it's too late).
I just realized that I really wrote a lot...If you make it this far please leave me a message or a comment so we can get to know and motivate each other : )
