For so many years I have been letting life slip past me without even trying to hop in and take part. I talk alot about wanting to do things, wanting to get out there and live but in the end I usually just stay on my butt, where I have become all too comfortable.

In the past 26 years I have been self-conscious and afraid to put myself out there. I have been afraid to live and enjoy life. I have let happen what I once said I never would; I let my weight get in the way of me doing pretty much anything.

I have been overweight pretty much my entire life and that was the biggest reason for not joining clubs in high school, for not dating, for not doing anything. I did have a brief time of a year or so where I had lost weight after high school, but then I got pregnant with my son and gained 80 lbs!!! I felt so horrible being so big! Then, for my second pregnancy, I gained 70 lbs, but started at a heavier weight so I weighed even more in the end. This time around, currently almost done my third pregnancy, I am struggling with not gaining too much weight and fearing how much I will have to lose in the end.

Since my son was born I have stayed away from taking him out and about to play, I sit on the side when he goes to the park. I don`t feel like I have the energy to play and that hurts so bad. I want to be a part of my childrens` lives but my weight and my health constantly seem to be in the way.

I am ready to change that! I am ready to get up off the sidelines and get out there and live life! I want to be healthy for myself and my children! I want to feel confident in myself and live!
