The Goddess In Me!

I know she's in there somewhere, and I'm on a journey to find her! I am a 50+, married, mother of two who has been fighting my weight since I had my baby boy - 15 years ago! I can't blame him any longer, but it truly seemed like a switch was flipped when I became pregnant with him, and it has been an uphill climb ever since. With the weight has come the inevitable high blood pressure, and the worries about becoming pre-diabetic.

I know she's in there somewhere, and I'm on a journey to find her! I am a 50+, married, mother of two who has been fighting my weight since I had my baby boy - 15 years ago! I can't blame him any longer, but it truly seemed like a switch was flipped when I became pregnant with him, and it has been an uphill climb ever since. With the weight has come the inevitable high blood pressure, and the worries about becoming pre-diabetic.

I found out about SparkPeople while reading a profile in the annual "Half Their Size" issue of People magazine, and am hoping that I can find the community and support here that I need to keep me going. I have a goal of dropping 97 pounds, and getting back to a weight where I feel like myself (160 lbs). I was able to drop a significant amount about six years ago on Optifast, only to gain it back, plus a few more pounds. What a waist - I mean, waste!

So, as I am starting a new year, and recently celebrated birthday, I am newly motivated that this will be THE YEAR! I am embarking on a "Goddess Journey" that I know will be full of successes and challenges, but I am hopeful for more of the former, thank you very much! :-)

That's my story! I am here to motivate & celebrate! 2011 is our year! (Yes, I love exclamation points!)

MY JOURNEY:
Starting Date: January 4, 2011
Starting Weight: 257.0 lbs

January 11: 253.9 lbs (-3.1)
