So I've been dreading the whole blog thing since I've started Spark. I want to share my journey with everyone but I have never been big on being open especially about my weight (the conversations I've DREADED my WHOLE LIFE.) My weight and dieting has been a roller coaster all my life as many of you may know this all to well. I just figure there is no better place to share what I am going through than here where there are other people in the same or similar situations as mine.
On April 13th of this year I stepped on the scale and @ 332lbs I finally decided enough was enough. Although that was not my heaviest I was still so ashamed. First thought to myself was what kind of example are you setting for your daughters. Then I began to go over all the small things I've missed out on in my kids' life, not because I couldn't do it but because I chose not to do it because of how ashamed I was by my weight. Then I thought to myself not only are you losing out on life but you are making your kids lose out as well. So I made the decision that day to begin my life changing journey with no looking back.
So here I am on July 8th making my very first blog entry, being more open about the dreaded topic of weight than I have ever been. To date I've lost 53lbs and yes I'm ecstatic that I'm in the 2's for the first time in 7 YEARS!!!! I'm very happy with my progress and yes I have a long way to go but I can honestly say for the first time in a VERY long time I'm beginning to love the NEW HAPPY HEALTHY ME!!!! If you are reading this thank you for taking your time to listen to me babble!!
