So here I am back at the starting point yet again. I am really struggling with my weight loss! I know I need to lose weight, I know what I need to do and I hate the way I look, but I just can't get "It" I feel so alone in my struggle, and have basically imprisoned myself to my house so nobody can see the weight I've gained. I hope this time I can stay on track and little by little reach my goal.

In just a few days, I will be the proud owner of an elliptical trainer! I am so excited!! I have been riding my recumbent bike faithfully for the past few weeks, but I was really looking for something else I could do. With my back and knee problems, I am very limited with what I can do, and it has to be low impact, and gentle on my joints, so after a bunch of research, I decided that an elliptical was the way to go. I was talking about it with my husband, and he told me to order one! He has been so amazing and supportive! I am the luckiest woman alive!

This past weekend, something amazing happened. Something that gave me a wake-up call, and gave me re newed motivation.
Last December, our son was killed in a car accident. He was just a few days shy of 25, had a baby on the way, and was finally getting his life in order. It was the most horrible thing that we had/have ever had to deal with. On June 6th, his son was born. The mother lives 2 hours away from us, doesn't have a car, and really made no effort to include us in his life. We would go see him whenever we could, but wanted a better relationship. His mom had to have a minor surgery last Friday, and finally agreed that we could bring him to our house. It was AMAZING! We love Brantley so much it hurts!
As it grew closer to the time we had to take him back, we sadly talked about how this might be one of the only times we would have him. Not 5 minutes later, we got a text from his mom asking if we would be interested in every other weekend visitation!!! It was so unexpected, and was the answer to our prayers! But it also gave me a new look on life.
I am going to be spending a lot of time with a baby. Babies are a lot of work. Babies need to be played with. Babies need to stay active. And at my weight, I am not going to be very good at those things. I Need to Lose Weight!! Monday morning I got up with a whole new outlook on life. I am no longer looking at diet and exercise as something I dread doing, and just do half-heartedly. I am making a better me! Not just for me, but for my family! I just feel so renewed!

I just feel like I am failing miserably at this whole weight loss thing. I am at my highest weight ever, and I feel like even though I am trying and trying, I am just fighting a losing battle. I have been eating healthier, and riding my recumbent bike 8-10 miles, 3-4 days a week, and feel like nothing is happening. And the lack of results is just making it harder and harder to stay motivated...HELP!!!!!!!!!!
