Working to become that strong woman on the outside that I am on the inside!!

I'm a professional organizer, a military wife, and a mother to 2 great kids. My 8-yr-old son is a Type 1 Diabetic, which carries a lot of stress and responsibility for me as a parent. My 12-yr-old daughter is extremely bright and is growing up way too fast. My husband is stationed in another state on military duty and has been living apart from the kids and I for quite some time. Last year I finally graduated college with a bachelor's degree in business (specialization in project management) ...
I'm a professional organizer, a military wife, and a mother to 2 great kids. My 8-yr-old son is a Type 1 Diabetic, which carries a lot of stress and responsibility for me as a parent. My 12-yr-old daughter is extremely bright and is growing up way too fast. My husband is stationed in another state on military duty and has been living apart from the kids and I for quite some time. Last year I finally graduated college with a bachelor's degree in business (specialization in project management) and after 4.5 years of hard work (4.0 GPA), long hours, and stresses, I had let my health and body go.

In January 2014, I decided to get myself back on track because after seeing the scale read a number just 2 pounds shy of my end-of-pregnancy weight with my son, I just about fell apart and felt so disgusted with myself. Not being able to fit into more and more of my clothes, I continued going up to new sizes and I knew it had to stop. In 2004, I had been slim and trim...all the way down to a size 4 with a very tight, strong, athletic body. It's time to work hard again and become that strong woman on the outside that I am on the inside!

GREAT QUOTES TO MOTIVATE ME:

~ Discipline is doing what you know needs to be done even though you don't want to.

~ Sweat is fat crying.

~ What you eat in private, you wear in public.

~ Your body keeps an accurate journal regardless of what you write down...

~ Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together (Vincent van Gogh)

I like your idea of a charm bracelet reward system. It's a constant reminder of your goals and is nice to look at. Congrats on your 15 lbs!!! emoticon
