Almost 36 trying to lose 36

I am a 36 year old mother of 6 in need of a change. I'm trying to get back to who I was when I had a life of my own. It's a bit about reclaiming myself (but not ignoring my husband and children of course).

Thus far, I have lost 15 pounds. It's been very difficult to accept how hard this journey is. When I was younger (even just 4 years ago), I could set my mind to lose weight and it would fall off with very little effort. I guess the pounds try to stick around a little more as ...

Thus far, I have lost 15 pounds. It's been very difficult to accept how hard this journey is. When I was younger (even just 4 years ago), I could set my mind to lose weight and it would fall off with very little effort. I guess the pounds try to stick around a little more as I age. It's been a real struggle to lose the 15 pounds and I'm getting tired, but I haven't given up.

I appreciate all the stories of my fellow SP because they inspire me to continue. Whenever I am on the verge of throwing in the towel, God will lead me to someone's story of victory over the scale. It only pushes me to believe more and more in myself.

Thank you to all of you for sharing your stories.

Happy New Year

emoticon If it didn't bring you joy
just leave it behind
Let's ring in the new year
with good things in mind

emoticon Let every bad memory
that brought heartache and pain
And let's turn a new leaf
with the smell of new rain

emoticon Let's forget past mistakes
making amends for this year
Sending you these greetings
to bring you hope and cheer
Happy New Year! emoticon
