I have battled with my weight for my entire life it seems. In high school I was active with sports, a big girl still, I seemed to keep my weight under control. Now, 3 children later, the word "ME" has been pushed to the back burner.

I have lost and gained the same pounds for many years and it needs to stop and I am the only one who can change this. Nobody made me heavy. Nobody made me unhealthy. Nobody gave me stretch marks(okay, maybe the kids did give me those!) I am responsible for me.

After many feelings of guilt about leaving the girls while I go and exercise, I have realized that I was not doing anybody any good in the mental and physical condition I was in. I was beyond moody, tired, lazy, boring.

Now, I crave my exercise! I crave good healthy food. I crave being a better mother and wife to my family.

So I am ready. I am ready to be healthy again. I am ready to take on this life change.

I hope to be an inspiration!!

    I hear that, I'm ready it's time for the pounds to go away. Hoping this round of turbo fire does the trick. You need to post a current photo with all that turbo kick you've been doing I bet you look awesome.

    I think I am like you...long distance is my thing. I am definitely not fast. :)
    Do you enjoy teaching a class?
    You have some great goals!
