No More Excuses!

My name is Sheila and I am 35 years old. I am married with 3 children. I want to not only lose this weight but be healthy. (being skinny doesn't mean you are healthy) Heart Disease and Diabetes run in my family and if I don't do something soon, I am heading down that road. I also want to teach my kids how to eat healthy and make the right food choices.

My name is Sheila and I am 35 years old. I am married with 3 children. I want to not only lose this weight but be healthy. (being skinny doesn't mean you are healthy) Heart Disease and Diabetes run in my family and if I don't do something soon, I am heading down that road. I also want to teach my kids how to eat healthy and make the right food choices.

My weight issues began at an early age. I was never really taught how to eat healthy foods and did not have the willpower to stop eating. I would live to eat, instead of eat to live. I always wondered when the next meal would be and I never really ate any healthy vegetables.

I have always known that I was fat and wanted to lose weight but never knew exactly how. I have tried countless fad diets and none of them really worked. I think I just lost hope and accepted the fact that I would always be the fat girl.

In September 2007, I began to watch the Biggest Loser, which gave me a renewed sense of hope. They showed how to eat and exercise. I have gained so much knowledge. My quest for knowledge continues every day. I am not on a diet, it is a lifestyle change. I am eating more fruits and vegetables that I ever have. I eat all whole grain foods and try not to eat anything processed.

Let's get out there and get moving because we are so worth it!

The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month. ~Henry Van Dyke
