2014 will be my year! (It's not too late!)

Below is what I wrote to start the year. It is now June 1 and I am on summer break. It's the perfect time to start over and TRULY make some progress. Maybe this time I can get some kind of routine started that withstands the demands of school when I go back in mid-August! I am the heaviest that I have ever been. Now that we are empty-nesters, I need to do this for me, for my husband and our marriage and for the future grandchildren I will hopefully have! NO EXCUSES!!

Below is what I wrote to start the year. It is now June 1 and I am on summer break. It's the perfect time to start over and TRULY make some progress.

Now that we are empty-nesters, I need to do this for me, for my husband and our marriage and for the future grandchildren I will hopefully have! NO EXCUSES!!

I know, everyone says it at the start of the new year. I've done it myself most of my life. I don't know why I think this year will be different, but I do.

When I look at myself in the mirror, I STRONGLY dislike what I see. I wonder how long before my husband decides he can't stand how I look. I'm afraid my kids are embarrassed when I am with them in public. I'm afraid the doctor will soon tell me I have a life-threatening problem brought on by my weight and lack of physical activity.

I also want to look better in all the photos that will be taken in May when my son graduates from high school. I don't want to look at those pictures and focus on how fat I am. I want to see a bright future for both ME and my son! (Well, THAT didn't happen!)

In addition, my husband and I will celebrate our 25th anniversary in November and I will attend my 30th high school reunion in August.

Thanks in advance for any kind words, SparkGoodies or other things you may do to encourage me. I will try to reciprocate however I can!

So glad to see that you signed up for the FLYING HIGH through JULY Challenge on the WW Team! It's going to be an adventure to remember as we grab Christmas from December! Now that you've pledged your pounds to lose, it's time to impress Santa by being NICE and never NAUGHTY --- so you better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I'm telling you why.........

Santa Claus is coming to town to help us all lose a pound! (or 2 or 10!)

We're getting fired up --- and why?
Because it is Christmas in July and we're FLYING HIGH!
