Petuniabud, there's no need for me to post because you said it all for me. I've been saying that 2013 has got to be about ME. I have to stop blowing-off my exercise and eating junk. I get overwhelmed and called on to do MORE and everything I wanted to do for me takes a back seat.

Welcome, Petunia. I won't say this journey is easy because this journey is not easy. There will be setbacks along the way, but you are right, we do need to take care of ourselves so we can be stronger and better. Use the SP trackers ... they are so beneficial, and check in often with the team.

Fifty three, tired, achy, flabby, out of breath, dull and lifeless skin and hair--The facts are the facts--Way too much weight on this frame- Why do I refuse to fully accept how short and fat I really am, even when I can't get in my jeans? Always wanting to blame the "camera" instead of facing the reality. Need to start holding MYSELF accountable for how I look and feel. Hope this is the place to start. I hope others can relate to how I'm feeling--I'm not putting myself down...but trying to pick myself back up. Years of taking care of others with traumas and situations in life have taken a toll. Time to think about ME and know it will make me a better, stronger caretaker in the long run.
