Yes I realize it is not June 9th till tomorrow. And no I did not travel to the future,

I chose tomorrow to be the start of something big for me I am tired of saying I will and then don't. I am tired of week after week passing and me not seeing change on the scale because I just haven't worked for it. I joined this site to find encouragement and share with others who are struggling with the same issues. Yet I have not taken advantage of it. Tomorrow this all changes. I have extended my weight loss fundraiser I am doing with my mother in law to October 1st and I fully intend to make it worth it.

I know I am probably starting to sound like a broken record, But the last few weeks I have done a lot of looking within myself, a lot of learning how to separate myself from the stresses of those around me. I AM READY FOR THIS!! I need to be ready for this. One day and one pound at a time I fully expect myself by this time next year to have dropped this weight once and for all. I fully expect to be healthier and happier. I expect to be loving a much more active life with my hubby and hopefully thinking of starting a family.


I am tired of feeling tired, tired of being out of breath when walking up the stairs, tired of feeling ugly no matter what I am wearing. I am tired of sitting on my butt and whining about how fat I am, how gross I feel and how I wished I was skinny again.

Thanks to all of you here who have been an encouragement and a blessing to me these past few months,. I look forward to what is in store for all of us in this journey and I look forward to growing friendships and shrinking waistlines.

    Oh Yeah!
    This is the start of something big. Confession is good for the soul. Once you put it out there, you will feel the responsibility to hold yourself accountable. I know the feeling all too well. The beast within keeps trying to hold us back. But you can do this! Stay with us in the Word. God wants you to find the strength within yourself to do this.

    You are worthy! You are made in His image. You are an amazing individual. Continue to see yourself as God sees you and you WILL conquer the beast. Every time you feel any temptation coming, just hurry up and huddle. Write a blog post. Reach out to us. We're here for you!

    Keep up the good work!

    I am glad you chose to write this tonight! I feel like someone else is feeling some of what I have struggled with this week. I have been at this for 2 months and I am just so frustrated and feeling like I need some extra motivation. So here is to us having the right attitude and taking care of business together!
