Role Model For My Sons

(Where I am now)

Life is complicated and some day my weight will not add to the struggles in my life.

I am a 40 years old, I think I deserve to be healthy and one day I will be healthy again. I am a very proud mother of an 9 year old and a 3 year old. They are the pride of my life and I want to be around a long time for them. So I am getting my self on track again.

(Where I am now)

Life is complicated and some day my weight will not add to the struggles in my life.

I am a 40 years old, I think I deserve to be healthy and one day I will be healthy again. I am a very proud mother of an 9 year old and a 3 year old. They are the pride of my life and I want to be around a long time for them. So I am getting my self on track again.

It has been my hardest year ever. I have seen new lows and have felt pain that I never want to feel again. I am far from perfect, but this year did not seem fair. So the only thing I can change is me. I know the change has to be for and from me. I'm hoping I'm strong enough to make this the year for making a lasting change in my life. Here is to 2013!

(Where I was then)
New Year and New Goals:

2007 graced me with a 65 lb weight loss and 43 weeks of true healthy living. 2008 graced me with an almost 45 lb weight gain and very little true healthy living. I am focusing on weight loss again and hoping that I can get back on track. Let me introduce myself again. I'm a 35 year old mother of a four year old who has struggled with weight since I was born (10 lb baby). I vowed to myself in January of 2007 that this would be the last year I would make a resolution to lose weight, but I'm making it one last time. That year I lost 65 lb and was only 25 lb from my weight goal and my high school graduating weight. I love food and every day is a struggle to keep on track. Some day I hope that my bad habits are replaced with good habits and I don't have to think so hard to make the right choices. But really why I'm doing this is to install healthy eating habits and a love for exercise in my son so he never has to go through the struggles I have. Well it is another year and my son is a very healthy eater and talks about exercise a lot, but that will change quickly if I do not start role modeling more appropriate things.

It is January 2008 and I have 60 lbs to lose AGAIN. I see many positives from this adventure and many of them are in my son and his eating habits and veiws of exercise. I think that is one of the reasons that I do not quit. Lord knows that I have wanted too many times and that I have many times...but I look at my son or he asks if we are going to exercise...then I'm back on board. I've decided that I will always crave food, and that I will always want more, but the difference is that I am strong enough to say no. Temptations will always be there and some days I will slip, but I will never fall. I will always get back up and brush myself off. I have gone back to the old me, but that doesn't mean that I have to stay here. Because if I do it is not only me who loses, but my son and husband also. And I love them too much to ever do that to them again. So I'm getting closer to a healthier person, but some days it seems so far away. But my goal now is to make it.

Wish me luck!

The 5K...... LOL okay... I won't lie.... it was awful LOL it was like it was never going to end... but you know what, at least I can say I did it now! And I wasn't last, which I wouldn't have cared either way. It was an amazing, EMPOWERING, experience, to say the very least!

Thanks for checking up on me. I haven't been on here as much lately either because I"ve been so busy trying to plan and keep up with a new grade. I really like the 5th graders. They are way more independent and I like being able to plan more challenging lessons for them. It's just really really busy!
