Hello!
I am here to get motivated, possibly motivate others and to lose weight. I have struggled keeping my weight at a reasonable number most of my life. Essentially, 7-8 years ago I gave up and now I am obese. I look in the mirror and wonder who the reflection in the mirror is?......How could this be me? Why did I do this to myself?
I knew how I did it to myself, but Why, is the underlying question.......I know that is the million dollar question and as I shed the weight, I am sure I will have to deal with some emotional issues that I have not addressed most of my life.
I used to work out on a regular basis, when I was younger I would run 6-7 miles a day. As I got older I continued to run, but not as often or as long. I joined a gym, then would work out at lunch and after work. It seems that I have always had to watch what I have eaten and work out like a fiend to be a normal weight......Of course I was not blessed with "skinny" genes.....so working out was a way of life and so was counting calories.........Sometimes I would fall off the wagon, only to return back to the routine when I started noticing my clothes getting tighter or the scale creeping up. I would then start the cycle again.......
I got married, had a baby and struggled to take off the weight I had gained....I had successfully lost 60 lbs after I had him, but never got to my pre-pregnancy weight. I also seemed to not make the time to keep it off......It was much simpler to ignore what I needed to do. Well my baby is now 11. So, I need to make some changes in my life and the biggest one is losing weight and keeping it off. I am venturing forth on this journey and seeing it for what it needs to be, a lifestyle change, not a diet.

Any guidance, inspiration or words of wisdom are welcomed!

    Alesia, Thank you so much for the flowers, I am at Sis's having a great time. Good for you doing more tracking this week. When I am totally honest and on target with my tracking I have really good weight loss weeks, so I don't know why I do not do that all the time. I Know what works and I still play with it sometimes. Lol I geuss it is human nature, Eve could not resist the Apple even though she knew it was a big risk she was taking. I geuss we are all a little crazy. Have a great week my friend! Susan
