This is my first blog ever. I am not sure what a "blog" actually is besides a person talking about their life??? Anways, I have struggled for years with my weight, I use to be thin and could eat whatever I wanted but that all changed after I had a hysterectomy at the ripe old age of 26yrs. That is when I started packing on the pounds, then I quit smoking and gained another 22lbs. UUgghhh....so my whole 30's were me gaining weight and trying to lose it. Now that I have passed the "40" marker, I think it is time to finally lose this weight. I have tried and failed many times but this time I am in it for the long run, baby steps and I don't care if it takes me 2 years to do it, at least at this time next year, I won't be 20lbs heavier, I will hopefully be lighter, MUCH lighter and not hating myself nearly as much as I do or have every New Year for the past 10 years! Since beginning this journey in the middle of January I have lost 10lbs...slow and steady wins the race or so they say, I would like to see better results than that but I will take what I can get as long as it stays off! I am glad to have found spark and a some great people to help me along this journey.
