Second time around

Hi all! My name is Janet and I am married with one wonderful 14 year old daughter. I recently lost my job as a Special Education Teacher, so things are tough financially. But despite that, I am trying to get back on track with my weight. Reading all my old blogs, I want to cry...I was down to 240 and a size 18 and now I am back up to 276 and a size 24!!!! I gained 30 lbs in the past 5 years!! I can't look at my self in the mirror without feeling so guilty and disgusting!

I have started taking Zumba 2 times a week and fill in the other days with walking/running at the local school track while my husband and daughter work on track things for the upcoming season. I have also started doing my own Zumba at home. I have lost 4 lbs in the past week (now down to 272) and am looking forward to being back in a place where I can look at myself in the mirror again and like what I see!

My Goals:
My goal is to make my husband and daughter proud! I want to feel better! I am sluggish, tired, and moody. I am sick of aching all over my body. My first goal is to start exercising more, getting off my butt and moving!

My Program:
I have cut out pop and drink strictly water. I am watching what goes in my mouth or I watch it show back up on my hips! I am doing Zumba twice a week, and going to the local track to walk/run 3 times a week, plus occasionally doing my own Zumba at home. Going to a gym has never worked for me with my busy schedule, so I have to find other alternatives.

Other Information:
I love to spend time reading, listening to music, and being with family. For someone whose whole life revolved around dancing (I danced competitively for 10 years), being overweight is not a comfortable thing. I would love to get back into dancing, but not when everything jiggles and bounces!
