So here's the deal with me:
I've been overweight since I was young....9 years old. I used to be quite the little thing, but developed epilepsy and was put on all sorts of medications. The one that did the best at keeping my seizures down did something else. It caused me to gain weight. I gained 30 pounds as a kid in a year....a TON! From then on it never came off. I got all of the regular name calling and disdain from fellow children and as I got older dating was hell. Lucky me though, I have a sparkling personality so the friends I've kept through the years don't judge based on my pudgy pudge. My first husband and I are still great friends (better friends than a married couple not knowing what to do) and we have a beautiful daughter named Lily. My now husband Nic is a gem as well. He tells me that I'm beautiful no matter what and all sorts of other blush worthy things.
I'm going to lose this weight. I'm doing it for me, and for my family. I want to be able to run after my daughter and not get sick because I'm so winded. I want my husband to be able to show me off and not get made fun of for marrying me.
I WANT TO DO IT! I've got a long way to go, but I'll get there. I have awesome support through all of my friends and family.
So here goes! Good luck to me!
