GOTTA LOSE

May 15th I flew to Tucson, AZ to visit my brother, 2 sisters, which I had not seen in 11 years, & their families. In doing so, I met my, then 7 month old, nephew Tyler for the 1st time. One of the sweetest babies ever. Always smiling. Came to me & loved me as if I've been a part of his life since the day he was born.

Of course, a lot of pictures were taken. I knew I was over weight & I had been talking about losing it. The real turning point was when I saw a picture of me & ...
May 15th I flew to Tucson, AZ to visit my brother, 2 sisters, which I had not seen in 11 years, & their families. In doing so, I met my, then 7 month old, nephew Tyler for the 1st time. One of the sweetest babies ever. Always smiling. Came to me & loved me as if I've been a part of his life since the day he was born.

Of course, a lot of pictures were taken. I knew I was over weight & I had been talking about losing it. The real turning point was when I saw a picture of me & Tyler that was taken. We were sitting on stairs & I looked huge. 5 ft 3 inches, 199 lbs is not small that's for sure. I promised that baby, not like he knows, & my sister that when they fly to Alabama next year I will be a different person.

I've seen a lot of pictures of myself & not at all pleased with them. However, that ONE picture struck something inside of me. My goal was 141. That's my sister's weight. If I was her size, I'd be happy. However SparkPeople's weight for me is 125. I would LOVE to be 125 again.

I have tried SparkPeople a few times over the past few years. I would shed a few #s & then life happened that caused me to get off track.

Here we go on this LIFE CHANGING JOURNEY. I'm am excited to see where it takes me.

Thank you for all of your messages. Keep me in your prayers that I continue to stay on this loosing track. My goal is 30, my leg and back need this relief from carrying too many people :-).

Thank you everyone for your support & kind words of encouragement. I was a sad but joyous time for the family. It was truly a home going for my Aunt. With the grace of God, we can all see her again someday.
