Tired of being tired

I am a 50 year old woman, a wife, mother, auntie, sister, daughter and friend. This means I have a lot of people depending on me. I'm starting to realize that it's time to spend time on me, something I haven't done in a really long time. After making everyone else my first priority, I'm finally putting myself first. This is MY YEAR.

I am a 50 year old woman, a wife, mother, auntie, sister, daughter and friend. This means I have a lot of people depending on me. I'm starting to realize that it's time to spend time on me, something I haven't done in a really long time. After making everyone else my first priority, I'm finally putting myself first. This is MY YEAR.

I have battled my weight for most of the past 20 years. I am fortunate that my husband took the "for better and for worse, in sickness and in health" part of our vows seriously, because he's hasn't given up on me after 30+ years of marriage. He's stuck by me through it all. After years of yo-yo dieting and some success with Weight Watchers, Slim Fast, Cambridge, Jenny Craig, Atkins, Nutrasystems, etc. etc. etc., I've decided to try a lifestyle change. My goal is to reduce my BMI to a healthy level by losing 60+ pounds..

This is my first step. Join me as I venture on this journey of wellness & self discovery!

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
