I have been struggling with my weight for some time. Probably since I had my son in 1989. I was never a skinny minny, but I was an average size. You wonder, how did it go so wrong? Now, all my husband wants is for me to be healthy. So to make a long story shorter.....here I am.
I was reading some blogs this morning and it's gonna sound funny, but I was shocked.
There are a lot of people here just like me! I'm not special in this. I'm not the only one this has happened to. My blood pressure is out of control, I've just been diagnosed with prediabetes, and I have trouble tying my shoes. And I'm reading and what the heck-- there are so many people who are telling my story, with one small difference. They are making progress.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not whining or being negative. I am going to make progress too. I love how this website works. There are some amazing inspirations on this site. It feels like family.
It's kinda like having freckles or birthmarks or maybe red hair(which I have two of the three!). We all have the family trait. But unlike freckles and birthmarks, we can do something about it.
We can be there for each other, in good times and bad, supporting each other to success. I want it so bad. I want it for you and I want it for me. Have a great weekend and good luck. You can do it.......I can too.
