New Day New Beginnings! That is the mantra for today. In a recent self evaluation I have concluded that there are several areas in my life that need a much needed re-vamp and dramatic change. One of those being taking my kids to church and starting a over a new life with Christ! And the second getting healthy, fit, and losing weight! For myself mostly but my kids as well. I have two small children Reece is 2 and Kyleigh is 5 months. I am 24 years old at 5'11 and 302 lbs. you could say I am a "very big girl". Or so I have been told or referred to most of my life. While not being able to get "rid" of my height I CAN get "rid" of my girth!! And from here on out that is what I plan to do. Back before I got pregnant with my daughter Kyleigh last year I was trying to lose weight and a doctor told me about SparkPeople. I never looked at it or even gave it a second thought until today. While doing my morning routine something hit me, Hey today is the day for a new change. I don't know why all of a sudden I have decided to do this or why today is any different than any other. BUT I am taking full advantage and setting goals for myself to achieve. Today is the day for a new start a new beginning of life! I have a chance and opportunity to change my life and myself for the better. While I know this is going to be a long and hard road with many ups and downs I am making a promise to myself, my kids, and any other support I have that I am changing today and I will NOT give up. I know that I can do this. I have over come many obstacles in my life and this is miniscule in the realm of things. My kids deserve to have a mother who is going to be active and healthy and not keel over from a heart attack at 25. I may get discouraged and I may get knocked back from time to time but I will keep on trying and never never give up! New Day New Beginnings! My favorite scripture that I remember always "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." I can and I will!!! Less talking more walking!!!
