Hi there. I am a 37 year old woman of three boys. Two of my boys are Autistic and somehow in the last five years of taking care of them I went from a size 12 to a size 24. I have lost 100 pounds before, but this time I have a hard time getting motivated and then staying on track.
I have found my motivation now. In Oct 2011 the family is going on an Orlando vacation. This vacation includes a 4 day cruise. On the very top of the cruise ship is a glass waterslide that runs above everyone on the ship. Now, can you imagine sitting in a deck chair, looking up-and seeing my size 24 bathing suited bottom cruising by? Pressed flat...and most likely with the suit crawling up between my expansive cheeks?
If I don't lose the weight I wonít go on it. Let's face it. I probably won't even put on a bathing suit. It would be just one more time I miss out on fun because I am over weight and embarrassed.
Itís time to take my life back and enjoy things with my family.
