It's time for ME!!

I am a Mom of 5 kids who are my everything!!! And now a Grandma to the cutest lil Bug and now Princess Lady Bug!! I have been struggling with my weight since I had my first child in 1989, and it has only gotten worse!

At my heaviest I was around 280lbs, I took 70lbs off very quickly. Then I met my current husband and pounds kept sneaking back on, before I knew it I was back up to 244. I hung around there until I quit my job and now my weight is at the highest its been in 10 ...

I've recommitted myself to ME recently,I am taking this month by month. My first goal date is Sept 20, 2013... my grandson's 1st birthday. Im just challenging myself to lose as much as possible. However, Id love to be down 20lbs!!

I've come to realize I need to stop looking for a "buddy" to do this journey with. No one helped me put these pounds ON so it's up to ME to take these pounds OFF!!! I welcome ALL the support and encouragement I can get all my journey, but I need to do this for ME!!!

My motivation? Its not one thing.... its my husband, my kids, my grandkids, having NOTHING fit, knowing Im not ready to cut my life short, and honestly... Im tired of being tired!!!!

I just read through your survey page for Violet Virtuosos, and then popped over to your page and saw this comment you made: I've come to realize I need to stop looking for a "buddy" to do this journey with." That really speaks to my situation! And yet, I seem to be slowly building some accountability as I get better acquainted with what the site has to offer.

I don't manage a group home as you do, but I do have the respnsibility for my intellectually disabled brother's needs. He live next door to me in the house where we grew up.

Thanks!! I don't feel much like a motivator though. I've been away for quite some time and gained back a lot of weight. UGH!!!
