Darren & Me - Oct 2011
My name is Gloria. I am 37 years old. I am a mom of 3 boys: ages 20, 17, and 14. I am a Grandma to a little boy who is almost 2 years old already, and I LIOVE it!! As well I can add I got married July 14, 2012... :D !!
I was on here a few yrs ago when my family was struggling desperatly to pick up the pieces from a failed 14yr marriage, and deaths in the family, and just normal everyday stuff.
I think I was pushing about 280 or so at the time, lost about 60lbs or so and gained it all back after I got ill about a year and half ago. The sad thing is that for most of my adult life I have always been on the heavy side to say the least but up until last year, I mentally and physicaly did not really notice. But I do now. After losing the weight I did, and gaining it back, I can feel it in all areas of my life. And I WANT IT GONE !!!
Like I said some where along the way I got lost, but I am back and more determined then ever to do this. I need to do this for my and for the life of my children and grandson; I want to become the mom (the person) I know I can be, one that is full of energy, that is not depressed, and one that will live to be older then 49 (thats how old my mom was when she passed).
I know I choose everything I do and don't do, I choose how things affect me, so I choose to be strong and follow a path to find the real me, and a happy me.
All I really want is to have a healthy, happy life with my family and friends. I want to be able to run (and not get black eyes...LOL), I want to have the energy that I should have. I dont want to be known as the funny, nice, FAT chick on the block..... I want to know that I will be around to watch my boys grow into fine young men, watch them get married and enjoy the birth of their children. I want to be able to watch my grandchildren grow and have children of their own..... unlike my own mom.... :(
I am struggling really hard. I don't usually eat breakfast because if I do I usually feel sick, so I am still going to try though. I am going to try to eat my 3 meals a day, with the odd snack. And really really try to drink my icky water.
I just had a full abdominal hysterectomy and 3 c-sections before that...so I know its gunna be hard but I have to do this....
