It is quite difficult with two small children to find the time and energy to get a workout in! I am hoping to get the opportunity to train for a 5K this summer. I think that will keep me from becoming "lazy" about my workouts.

It took some time before i started seeing results. My body had to adjust to the changes I was making. The weight should start coming off.

I am also journeying to a healthier me. My diet has improved considerably and I think I am feeling better for it, even if the weight is not falling as I would like.

I have issues with low blood sugar so I have to always eat or drink something. So, instead of a rapid weight losss I'm working on a slow weight loss. Just changing what I drink and what I eat has contributed to a slow weight loss. I was 164 in December. Now I am 158.

I barely eat or want sweets now since I changed my eating patterns. Adding fresh veggies each day has been a benefit as well. After a few months I got used to eating the healthier foods.

Best of luck for you on ur weight loss goals.

These past few months for me have been about getting healthy and losing weight. I had started "trying" around Christmas time, but really kicked into gear when i got a kick in the pants by the doctor at the end of January. I went in for a well visit and to get bloodwork done because i was feeling tired all the time. One of the first things the dr mentioned was that I was considered obese, which puts me at higher risk for a LOT of health problems that happen to already be family heath problems, mostly high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes. She also referred me to a pulmonologist to set up a sleep study and check for sleep apnea. Results from the blood work came back about a week later and it turns out my cholesterol is already really high at the age of 24. They didnt prescribe any meds but told me that i really need to get my weight in control and exercise to hopefully get those numbers down. That was blow number 1.

The second blow was when I got the results back from the sleep study. I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea. There's not much that can be done for a mild case of sleep apnea. What could i do to help alleviate some of the sleep apnea? You guessed it...lose weight.

It is only by the grace of God that i have made it as far as i have in this journey. When I started I was nearly 230lbs. This note is marking a milestone for me... today I weigh 200lbs, a weight i havent been at since 2007 when i was pregnant with Krystal.

My journey is not over yet. I still have about 30-40 pounds left to lose. I thank God for how far I have come and know that i wouldn't have made it this far without His help, I cannot do this on my own. I rejoice today for this progress, and pray that I will continue to make more progress.
