Taken 8/29/10 Yes, this is actually how I look!
I really want some friends who can help encourage me and let me do the same for them. I want to lose weight for me! I hate being diabetic and I want to wear clothes I don't feel lumpy in! I am the mom to 6 of my own children, and plenty of others along the way. I am a Vegetable & Flower garden FANATIC! .
I am going to go from 220 lbs. to 130! by Christmas 2011. I will beat this Diabetes! I will beat the High Blood Pressure, High Cholestrol! And, I will beat the voice in my head that tells me all the time how fat I am!!!
I am rethinking everything! I've decided that instead of thinking about my limits, I will concentrate on over coming them! I'm asking questions, setting goals, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize! A healthier, smaller ME!
I live in a small town that has 1 grocery store, no gyms, nothing to offer in the way of exercise. I have been here 15 yrs. and found that if you didn't go to high school with everyone, well, good luck making friends.
I have 6 kids. 4 grown and on their own, one teen at home, one gone to Jesus. Some of them think I'm perfect, some think I'm the devil. I can't rely on their opinions as it changes when their situations change. My husband has always said I'm perfect, but since I've lost 20 pounds, I've found out I look even better to him, but he's not thrilled with me looking better to everyone. I think it's because he has a weight issue and isn't ready to do anything about it. So, it's "me & God" as the song says. I'm gonna need a lot of prayer!
