The Start of Re-Beginning's

I am 46 years old, have been married since I was 18. I have 2 grown children 23 and 27. Since the birth of my second child I have gone up and up and up in my weight. Right out of high school, I weighed 128. Currently, I am just above 100 pounds of that, currently at 232. So. That is my motivation. I want to be what I was when I graduated from high school. I know I will never BE what I was then, but I would like to be the healthies that I can be. I graduated in 1982, and we had our first ...
I am 46 years old, have been married since I was 18. I have 2 grown children 23 and 27. Since the birth of my second child I have gone up and up and up in my weight. Right out of high school, I weighed 128. Currently, I am just above 100 pounds of that, currently at 232. So. That is my motivation. I want to be what I was when I graduated from high school. I know I will never BE what I was then, but I would like to be the healthies that I can be. I graduated in 1982, and we had our first and only 10th year reunion in 1992. I was around 155 then. We are tentatively planning our 30th, for 2012, and I want to be as close to high school weight as possible. So that and the big 5 - 0 is creeping up quickly, and they are my motivators.

I have yo-yo dieted forever. Forever trying the NEW diet medicine, or fad diet. I don't want to do that anymore.

I read this somewhere the other day, and it really stuck. Thought I would share it with you...The 3 C's of life: choices, chances and changes ~ You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.

I'm ready for a change, are you?

Update from Original Introduction:

I lost my 23 year old son on January 17th, 2011 I will never change the introduction, as I do have 2 sons. One is just no longer with me in the physical sense. If interested, you can go to the beginning of my blogs, and on April 17th, 2011, I introduced Jeffrey and the re beginning on my journey.

My Goals:
My goal is to feel good about myself. I am sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I want to go to a store and be able to buy clothes in the NORMAL sized department. I WANT to look at sizes again.

My Program:
I am trying to count my calories, and hopefull with the help of sparkpeople, I will be able to do that more easily. I plan to watch my intake on complex carbs. Intake more protein, vegetables and fruit. When I do eat bread/starches, I will be high fiber content, multigrain. I am just going to try to "wing" it on my own this time. Any suggestions, let me know, I'm open to anything.

Personal Information:
I am 44 years old. I have been married ALL of my adult life. 26 1/2 years, to be exact. I have to grown children, both men. The oldest is married, so I aquired a beautiful little (step) grand daughter.

Thanks so much for adding me as a friend; I've done the same. In looking at your page, I see you have also been through so much. You must be a very strong lady and your faith in God is an important part of that. I want to take some time to read your blogs over the next couple days while I'm off work.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and New Year. God Bless You.

I've been meaning to stop by for a while to greet you. I visited your page some time ago. I am really sorry for your loss. I read all your blogs back then. Revisited a little today.
You look like you are doing well and the weight is coming off! emoticon That is always encouraging.
I pray you will be blessed as you walk this journey.

Just wanted to stop by and say emoticon for commenting on my blog. I really appreciate it.

I couldnt help but read of your sad loss. I really have no words to say.... I just hope and pray that every day you will be able to move forward. I dont think grief ever leaves completely....some days will be good...some days will be better. Im sure if your son could talk to you he WOULD tell you to go on... Hold that in your heart. Dont put a time limit on your grief.
