I was so disgusted when I saw this picture of me, I even totally cropped it when I was developing it - but it really shows the weight on me - no cover-ups here!
Okay, so I just can't keep this to myself any more. In the past 8 1/2 years I've gained 80 pounds - ugh! Just typing that makes me sick. And no, it's not from having 2 babies, it's because I was lazy and I love food. Now, in the past month I've lost weight for the first time in those 8 1/2 years! I've lost 8 lbs. and I'm so excited. I think the best thing about actually LOSING weight is that it really motivates me to keep it up. I haven't yet got an exercise program down. I've worked hard to change the fact that most of what I eat is fruit and vegetable. And I'm enjoying that. I've also been working really hard on the house and pulling weeds which I've considered my exercise (considering that it makes me sweat so much!) So, if you see me or talk to me or email or whatever!!! please ask me how I'm doing - help me stay motivated, I'm sure I'll have down times when I don't lose much or any at all. Those are the times I will start feeling like it's pointless and I'll want more support. So, if you don't hear an update from me - please ask me!
