I am here and so 1/2 the battle has been won. I moved out of the hustle and bustle of NYC and over the the pretty lame and nothing to do state of MD (no offense to anyone from MD I'm just bitter lol). Worked a crazy schedule had even crazier eating habits and lo and behold here I am. 70 or so pounds heavier and almost completely inactive. I did try Jenny Craig-worked but when my car got totalled and needed a new one it became too expensive. I maintained the weight loss for awhile with the Calorie Kings Carb book. I started having all kinds of health issues only to be told by several Doctors I need to lose weight and most if not some of my issues would subside... I tried the Master Cleanse-worked pretty good I just got tired of squeezing lemons everyday :)

I haven't been a big girl all my life in fact looking back now @ old pics I suffered from distorted body perception. I actually was kinda sexy :) but I was constantly feeling fat back then curves weren't in I suppose. Now I can actually see and feel the backfat, jiggling tummy; etc etc etc *cue violin*.

I have decided to stop being the victim and do something about it. There are many things in life I have no control over but my weight isn't one of them. I feel my internal struggle daily. I feel the inner diva in me trying to come out and to be perfectly blunt I cannot afford to keep buying entirely new wardrobes for my expanding waistline. My husband is a gym enthusiast. I used to laugh @ the super fine fit husband and the homely chubs of a wife.. ooooh that karma does love me so bcuz TA DA here I stand the homely pudgy wife. But, thank God the man doesn' complain, my son tells me I am the most beautiful person in the world and there are not enough affirmations I can say in a day that will help me forget that if I stand up and look straight down I can't see my feet that was cute when I was pregnant but my son is almost 9 now. I can't even blame having a baby bcuz I walked out the hospital teeny tiny. I can attribute this to pure laziness !!! but I will be focused and I will do this.

Thanks for reading God Bless and Good Night :)

    Hey Brooklyn, I am just checking in on you to see how you are doing. Give me a shout if you need to.

    Hi Brooklyn Girl! I've always wanted to visit New York and was actually planning a trip there this coming February until I went and bought and new motorcycle. So now I've got to pay that off first. Anyway I've been to Salsbury, Maryland so I can feel some of your pain. I didn't like my move from Texas to California either but it's been one of the best moves in my life. Good job, great husband and beautiful son. Things will prosper there for you too. Keep your head up.

    I feel you on your introduction and know exactly what you meant when you were saying (on WDIGM) that it's sometimes hard to talk to ya girls about marriage issues! Good luck with achieving your weight loss. My husband and I are one of those couples (one rather chunky and the other a lot more fit), and I'm workin to make us more equal. emoticon

    You have such a way with words. What a funny, albeit serious, account of your struggle. I can sooo relate to what you're going through. It's as if you wake up one day, look at yourself in the mirror and ask "WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?"

    Girl, you can do it! Half the battle is to acknowledge that you have a problem -- it's the first step, sort of like the 12-step program for alcoholics. The remaining steps is on you and those you choose to help you along the way. Anyway, if you need to chat some more - keep in touch!
