It has been a rough road. The past few years have taken their toll on me and now it's time time to take back the reins and start over. In 2005 I had a hysterectomy. Since then I've gained almost 20 lbs. On top of the 20 I already needed to lose, needless to say I've got some work to do.
My husband left close to two years ago. When a marriage is over it takes time to sort out ones feelings and get emotions back in check. It was impossible to lose weight and change my life at the same time.
I had a recent health scare. Lucky for me I'm just fine. During that waiting time I didn't think about what I looked like for a moment. I just wanted to be OK. And I am.
Now is the time to start over. I am glad I found a place that I can glean motivation from and it's nice that I have a friend here as well. Hopefully, I'll make more friends and we all can root each other on.
Yup, today is the first day of the rest of my life. Corny but true.
