Here we go!

Thursday, October 04, 2012

I haven't written a blog since Myspace, bear with me.

Since this is my first blog I will give some of my basics. I am a single mother to am extremely handsome 5 year old who has Type 1 diabetes. This plays a big role in my weight as most of the time I still blame myself for it. I know it wasn't but we all know when your child is sick you blame yourself. I am working on it. We currently live in Caribou Maine. It is an amazing place to live, as long as you like potatoes and snow. I work at McCain Foods in the Dry Storage Department, I coordinate it actually. We make French Fries. And most days it isn't hard to walk by and sneak a few fries as they are being cooked up by quality control. I'm just helping the company out by taste testing right? :) I have an extremely long ways to go. I have been overweight for as long as I can remember and I am plain sick of it. I have always been the type to say 'oh I will do it tomorrow', or 'I'm not that fat', well guess what Sara? You are! but guess what? I CAN control this and I can beat this. I have my life ahead of me and I need to be there wholly and completely for my son. I need to be healthy to make sure that he knows what it means to be healthy. So with that said I have to go and use my killer forklift skills and get my butt back to work. I hope everyone is having a good day!!
