You know I can give all sorts of excuses for why I got as large as I am, but I am far over blaming this problem on anything other than the fact that I got lazy. I am 30 I weigh 240lbs. I am the mother of two children, married to one of my best friends, foster for a dog rescue and a full time student. I try to volunteer my time as often as I can. This past valetine's day I suffered the loss of my mother and best friend. She had so many health issues, one that I have focused on is heart disease, three months after the loss of my mother we lost my cousin at the age of 27...His heart stopped, at 27. So we have heart issues in my family and I am now looking at my self saying "you are diabetic, you weigh 240lbs and you may have a heart attack and leave your children without their mother" I cannot make my kids suffer the same loss I have had to endure. I am determined as I have never been, I have been back in the gym for a month now, taking kickboxing classes and I am actually down 15lbs from my start date. Enjoying it and hoping that I am able to keep up this course this time.

    Congratulations on your weight loss emoticon I know it's a hard journey. I don't have any children but I do have a younger brother and sister who mean the world to me. I want to be a role model for them. They're both overweight and I think if they can see me losing weight then that will give them the belief and motivation that they can do it too.

    I'm so sorry that you lost both your mum and best friend. That is such a devastating blow. I am sure your mum would be so proud of the journey you have taken up, and that she would wish you every success. Hang in there. Every step will get easier, I'm certain. emoticon emoticon
