My name is KJ and I owe it to myself not to GIVE UP. So I am JUMPING back into the race yet again! I realize that the only way to do it is just start again and move from where I am..... can't change or undo the past. I have let so much go and spent so much time taking care of others... I need to start putting me first again. So its time to put a PLAN into Action and my BUTT into Gear!! I am 47 years old and I am responsible for ME!!!

I have had to reset my track since I am now up to 240 pounds which means I now have a total of 75 pounds to lose. I am currently job searching (once again unemployed so its about time to get off of this pity pot and start again....

My Fibromyalgia is always painful with good days and bad days but I will be sure to log some decent pool time doing water aerobics and going to Zumba whenever my daughter is teaching.... Biggest issue as of today - 12/12/12 is I think I have broken my big toe and it is rather painful to walk.

I am going to start by making a conscious effort to track my food intake and get off the sofa and start MOVING -- no matter how bad I feel.

I realize that I can't and I won't live in this body any longer. It won't do the things I want to do and get done. So, I am waging war on my fat. This is my personal war and I will win.

I am the mother of 3 grown kids and Grandmother of two gorgeous grandchildren ages 9 and 5 who I am actually getting to spend more time with these days.

Life is GOOD, I need to count my blessings and shout out to the world that I live very happily with my boyfriend Jimmy and our two cats in SC.
