"EVERY NEW DAY IS A CHANCE TO CHANGE MY LIFE"

I will be 50 on my next birthday! I feel like its time to do something about my weight or I never will.....With no support on this journey sometime I question myself "AM I REALLY WORTH ALL THE TROUBLE"....Of course I know to myself that I am....but to others I dont know......I need to take my life back and live and enjoy what I have left....I have raised 3 children and now think its time to start loving myself enough to do better....

I go the gym at least four days a week ..and spend at least and 1 hr to 1 and 30 minutes on alternate days.....I also want to lift 30 minutes and least 3 days a week. ........I also need to learn to be consistant in what I do and stick to it.

Personal Information:
I am from north carolina. I have raised my children and finally had time for me. I have taken care of the education part now I need to work on getting healthy. Dont get me wrong , I want to lose weight but I also need to be healthy. I want to be around to see my last child graduate high school and my grand kids go to school. I have never lost a really large amount of weight but I am getting no younger and I know the older you get the harder it gets. If I fail I will have to pick myself up and start over again. I cant give up.

Other Information:
I would love encouragement from others who have and are going thru the same thing im going to.....

I read your blog. I hope you find the support system that you're looking for. I know personally just how important it is to have one. I started out thinking that I didn't have one, but then I realized I could build one, and I've done that. It doesn't always look the way we might hope in the beginning, but sometimes it can even turn out better than one could possibly hope. Best of luck on your journey!

hi Demetrice.. I have started over more than once but I have to do it this time. I have people who support me, but don't really understand what its like to be my size and sometimes can be insensitive. But I know we can do this because we can support each other. Have a Merry Christmas emoticon
