I have been struggling with weight since I was a little girl. I have always been the tallest and biggest. I have always been content with myself until the last couple of years. One day I stepped on the scale and it read 300lbs. I was devastated. I just couldn't believe how much weight I had gained. It seemed like it happened overnight, but I know very well it didn't. I got comfortable with the married life. My husband has always told me that I am beautiful and that he loves me the way I am. But, I'm not happy with ME. Last year I joined SP and tracked my food and exercise for about 3 months. I was successful in losing almost 30lbs. I felt so good. But, then I got lazy and one day I stopped everything. I stopped exercising, drinking water, being positive. I started bad habits like fast food, candy, and late night snacking. Recently I decided something needed to be done. I absolutely HATE the way my clothes fit. I'm tired of the muffin top look. I'm tired of not having anything to wear when it's time to go somewhere. There have been times that I have felt so ashamed of my fat hanging over that I would wear a jacket all day. Well, I have decided that it doesn't have to be this way. I control what goes into my mouth. I control whether I exercise or not. I am the only one holding myself back. I know it is so hard and I am trying to remember that this is a LIFESTYLE CHANGE, not a DIET. One of the things that helped me realize that I need to lose weight was seeing a lady being asked to get off of a ride with her daughter because the operator could not lock down the bar. I said to myself, I don't want that to be me. The one time I flew on a plane, I could barely breathe because the seat belt was just too small. I was scared, I thought that they were going to tell me to get off, but then I found out they had an extra piece that gave me more room for my seat belt. That was almost 4 years ago so you know I am much heavier now. People always tell me you are tall you carry your weight well. I won't accept that anymore. I must make a change. I must change for the better. I must change so that I am able to run around with my son without my knees hurting. Every day I sit and think about what I need to do. I write it down. None of that matters if I don't show it in my actions. I've read that nutrition is 80% and exercise is 20%. So therefore my main focus is eating the right foods. I'm not going to tell myself that I can't have something because I am the queen of binge eating. I'm just going to focus on moderation and incorporate more fruits, vegetables and water into my everyday eating. I would love to post pictures when I start losing some real weight. Wish me luck and good luck to you all. We are not alone in this struggle!!! - T.J.
