My Story September 19, 2008
My name is Angie and I am a 38 year old mother of 4 children. Like a lot of people, I am not new to this struggle. I have spent almost my whole life being fat. I have tried many times to maintain this blog and focus on myself but have failed every time. At this point, I am reevaluating my life and weighing my options. More than anything, I want to lose weight. I have an enormous goal of 125-135 pounds that I want to obtain. I know that it is possible but I have to get myself in the mindset for it. I struggle with depression and low self esteem daily. I know as a healthcare provider the benefits of weight loss are enormous. I had always been against bariatric surgery in the past, thinking it was a cop-out. Recently I called my insurance company to see if it was an option for me, it is not. So with no alternative, I have to depend on myself to find the strength and motivation to accomplish this huge goal. This blog is an attempt to document my struggles and accomplishments along the way. Please feel free to contact me with questions or advice, i need all the help I can get.
