I had previously joined SP about 8 months ago (another New Year's Resolution) but didn't really stick with it like I should have. I got married in April. When I looked at my wedding and honeymoon photos I was absolutely mortified!
I barely recognized the person that I had become. I felt like my outside definitely did not match how I felt on the inside. So I got back on SP. Once I really started tracking the foods that I ate and started with a definitive exercise plan (starting with walking but planning on working my way up) I realized that this was something that I could actually do! I realized that the way I ate wasn't a huge problem, though I do have to lower my sugar intake and up my protein intake. My biggest problem is that I don't move enough. I sit at a desk all day for work, and then go home and lounge on a couch all night. I have alot more confidence going into this this time than I did last time. I want to be able to look in the mirror and see that beautiful girl that I used to be. Not this person who can't even look herself in the eye, let alone have any self-esteem to feel any better. This time I will make the changes I need to to succeed. To be better for my kids, my husband, but most importantly, myself.
