new to the site but ready to do the work

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I have been dealing with a weight issue for many years....most people would tell you that I don't have a lot to lose, you look fine, but they don't see how hard it is to try to fit into my clothes daily....most people think I am a size 8 or 10 when in reality I am a 14-16. I have tried many plans but find that working with people and not alone is a great motivator...having someone pick you up when you fall of the wagon is a great feeling.

I have great support at home but my husband will run to the store if I am having a chocolate craving, and not just for me, he buys something for himself and my son. I looked at this last week and thought to myself "are y9u willing to ruin your families health just for your craving" I needed to make a change...I found this site in a magazine and I am so looking forward to finally making the change I need to succeed. Yes I have 35 pounds to lose but I also have to maintain that lost along with helping my husband take off the 40 he needs to lose and my son could stand to drop maybe 10 pounds. So here I go, I am leaping off the cliff and hoping that my new friends here on sparkpeople will be their to help catch me if I fall or be their to cheer when I soar.

I will be you loudest cheerleader in return so let win this fight...... finally!!!!!!!!!!
