I want to live!

MY SHAME: My joints feel like I'm 70 years old. Now, not only do my knees hurt but my hips hurt too. I get rude comments about my weight when I walk on the boardwalk with my family. I'm not proud of how I look in a swimsuit but yet I love to spend the day at the beach. I'm out of breath by the time I walk through the sand to get back to the car and have to take the ramp instead of the stairs back up to the parking lot.

MY SHAME: My joints feel like I'm 70 years old. Now, not only do my knees hurt but my hips hurt too. I get rude comments about my weight when I walk on the boardwalk with my family. I'm not proud of how I look in a swimsuit but yet I love to spend the day at the beach. I'm out of breath by the time I walk through the sand to get back to the car and have to take the ramp instead of the stairs back up to the parking lot. I have to pause before I step off a sidewalk curb because if I just walk off the curb, it will make my knees give out and I might fall. My children, now pre-teens, are overweight and starting to be teased about their weight. I've led my family into an addiction to fried food and sugar filled sweets. I'm ashamed of myself!

THAT'S GOING TO CHANGE!
I want to go to the beach and feel good about how I look in a swimsuit. I don't want to wear "granny swimsuits". I want to shop in the regular size clothing again. I want to walk on the boardwalk and get looks, not because I'm "as big as a bus" but because I look good! I want to have the energy to ride my bike with my kids after I get off work. I want my daughter to be influenced by my healthy lifestyle and change her lifestyle with my help. I want my daughter to be proud of how she looks and not be teased because she's overweight. I want my son to care about his health, get off that computer and enjoy running and playing outside. I want to live to be as old as my granny lived. I don't want to die at 60 before I even get to retire because my choices were so devastating to my health. It's time to take control of my life again!

I'm just fine. Just been so busy between being short staffed at work and trying to do the Holiday stuff (and shopping), I haven't had time to do more than to track my food and exercise. I just logged on to put up a blog update though! Thanks for asking!
