So, I turned 37 yesterday and realized it's been 10 years since I started gaining this weight. Ten years ago, I was 27 and 150 pounds -- I can't even visualize it any more, how sad!!!
But, I'm making this my "new year" resolution -- to turn 38 at least 50 lbs lighter and so much happier!! Who needs a January 1st to start over -- any day is a good day!!!
I have a plan -- cutting out sugar, more water, my kid's are both in school starting next week (at least for a few hours, the little guy is in preschool) so I know have no excuses to not exercise. I meet with my doctor the end of the month to get a referral to a counselor who specializes in eating disorders and I'm finally ready to take care of me, instead of everyone else.
I want to make this positive, not like punishment. My life hasn't stopped just because I let myself go -- little steps -- a little make-up, some nicer clothes (burn the sweats!!) and I'll be on my way
Wish me luck!!
