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!!!!

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!!!

LOL You are so right !!! Our tenting days were over almost 25 yrs ago !
After I'd been flooded out 3 times in 24 hrs., that was it, I was done !!! Nest year we got a pop up, then the following yr. we got a used travel trailer from cousins. I would never go back to tening !!! If I got down on the ground, I'd never get back up !!! LOL.
But thank you for the tent goodie anyway !!! I appreciate the thought ! ; }
I'm assuming your from Ohio by your spark teams, if so, where at ?
I gotta' tell you, you sure don't look old enough to be a Grandma, but congratulations !!! Beautiful babies !!! ; }
Again thanjs for the goodie !!!
Have a great week !!!

Thank you for the goodie it was a nice surprise.
I also have a house full of kiddos so I understand how hard it is to get a few minutes to take care of your self, so I truly hope you have a minute or two out of the day just for you, you deserve it.... emoticon
