New year... new me?
Wednesday, January 06, 2010
Ok, here goes.
A friend suggested I try out this website. I was going to try to lose weight on my own this year, just like last year, and the year before that.
I came on this site, calculated my BMI and realized that I'm considered obese at 5 ft 8 and 216 pounds. I've never looked at myself as obese, a little chubby yes, but never obese. I'm only 27. If I don't do something about my weight now and change my bad habits, by the time I'm 47 I will be much heavier.
For me it's not vanity. In my head I still see myself as a size 10. (Pictures of myself at this weight really startle me!) I just want to feel better. I want to take my babies to the pool and not think twice about it. I want to be able to shop in all clothing stores, not just a few. And most of all, I want to be the hot wife my husband deserves and the thin and fit mom that my kids deserve.
Wish me luck!!!!!!!!
