this is my introduction. i'm 34 almost 35 and I need to lose almost 100lbs. OH MY GAWD it sounds awful when you say it out loud. I don't even know how I got here. Oh wait yes I do..two kids, up and down health issues, and a sedentary work environment. All I hear are excuses. My excuses. I've tried to lose this weight before and I've failed. I got down to 200lbs with sparkpeople four years ago and found out I was pregnant and high risk so there went all my hard work. I was defeated. emotionally, mentally, and physically defeated. I was disgusted with the medical field who had no answers only critical judgement. Disgusted with myself for being unable to "figure it out", depressed because my work out buddy and best friend moved to another state and tired and overwhelmed with two kids a full time outside the home job and no help at home. I WAS DONE!
Now four years after my second child was born I'm ready to try again. I have a new job that is more "family friendly" and more "people friendly" as well. They support and encourage healthy living and have all sorts of ways to help their employers live a healthy life. A Wellness initiative that allows for more access to exercise equipment and classes and a full on Rec. complex that you can access for 35 dollars a year. Ok I'm ready to try this again. I need to lose another 33 pounds to get back to 200lbs. That is my first goal. Lose 33lbs. If I can do that maybe I can prove to myself and all those jerk off doctors that they and I are wrong and this IS doable.
I'm alone in this and that makes it harder but I want this to work, I NEED this to work.
