When I woke up this morning, I asked myself, "What is life about?" I found the answer in my room...the fan said, "Be cool." The roof said, "Aim high." The window said, "See the world!" The clock said, "Every minute is precious." The mirror said, "Reflect before you act." The calendar said, "Be up to date." The door said, "Push hard for your goals." The floor said, "Kneel down and pray"... Hello...My name is Nkechi (pronounced Nikki). I am a mother of five beautiful children and I am here for them. I never have the energy to actually sit down and just be with them and I hate myself for it everyday. I want to be a role model for them so I found myself here. I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. My weight holds me back from so many of the things I used to do...swimming, socializing, playing with my kids, my husband, even wanting to go back to school...and I hate it. I have never really known how to eat healthy or live healthy for that matter and I am learning so much from this site...I am addicted!! I had a slight setback after already losing 40 pounds and found out that I was pregnant again, with my fourth child (and fifth), and ended up gaining all of my weight back. I am getting started again with a starting weight of 300 lbs. I am going to start setting small goals for myself for now and see how it goes. Goal #1: 275lbs. Goal #2: 250 lbs.

    I love this, thought I share:

    Wellness isn’t about deprivation and it’s not about perfection.

    It is about pointing yourself in the direction of growth, training yourself to get comfortable with your highest potential, and then taking small steps to support that shift.

    It’s about showing up for yourself, day by day, and then one day finding that you’ve undergone a transformation.
