Well today starts Day One of my "getting back to healthy" journey. I am embarking on this journey for many different reasons, the main one being that I just want to be healthy. I have a pretty crazy family history of diabetes and I do not want to become part of that pattern. Also, my husband and I would like to start a family and I want to make sure that I am as healthy as I can be before we embark on that leg of our journey together. We are renewing our wedding vows on December 4, 2014 which will be our five year anniversary in Jamaica where we originally honeymooned. I would LOVE to be able to wear a bikini. I would just love to feel pretty. I lost that "pretty" feeling about thirty pounds ago and I am sick of not fitting into the clothes in my closet, wearing yoga pants because they are the only thing that fit and not being able to be what I want to be for Halloween because I don't fit into the costume. I am tired of making excuses for myself and being scared of going to the doctors office because I know they are going to weigh me. I'm tired of being tired all the time and scared. The only person in my way is me and I need to realize that...I can do this. I WILL do this. It's going to be a long and difficult road but I want to travel it. I need to do this for me and my future. My goal weight date is for my vow renewal which is in December 2014. My overall goal is to lose about 50 pounds, that will get me to my original healthy weight where I was comfortable in my skin and fit into all the clothes I have. I think I can do this and I'm excited!!
