Last November my daughter got married. Everyone told me how beautiful I looked, and I really felt beautiful, UNTIL I saw the photos of me . I was shocked! Why is it we don't see the way we really look when we look in the mirror?? I vowed right then that I would eat healthy and exercise to get the weight off once and for all. Well, here it is almost 9 months later and guess what? I am 9 lbs. heavier than I was at the Wedding!! My daughter informed my husband and I that we are to be First-time Grandparents in April of 2014. I am thrilled , don't get me wrong, but one of my first thoughts was...omg, if I continue on this road I will look horrible in any picture taken with my grand child. I run from cameras and I don't want to do that anymore! I have over 100 lbs to lose and I KNOW I can accomplish this. I am sooo excited about it being September 1st tomorrow.....I think I am more determined than I have ever been to eat right and move my body, and this is due to joining SP today I joined My Fitness Pal and I get NO support over there. I love how this is so different . My first day and people are coming out of the woodwork to make me feel loved.
I want to get this weight off so I will feel better.....I am always tired, my chest hurts a lot, and I just don't sleep well at night. I do not want to end up getting a disease because of my bad eating habits. Its much easier to prevent than cure. I set goals on here and I AM READY !! I already planned out my eating for tomorrow and I am going to go walking.
I look forward to getting to know people on here. I want to motivate others, and also to be the best that God made me to be. Together we can do this!!!
