I'm ready to lose this weight. I am tired of obsessing over it - every day and every minute of every day. For years and years I've lived like this - waiting to be thin enough to do this or that. Things I've just gone ahead and done (have my wedding) while fat, they kind of haunt me. I've only lost 30 lbs in the last year - but it's a start!!

I have said the more than once in my life but Now is ME time…. this time I am doing it for me… I don’t know what made this time any different than the rest but this time it seems to have stuck… I honestly think it is because my friend got me to doing 5Ks with her… now I have resolved to do one a month for the foreseeable future… it sure does make a difference because I know I have to exercise so I won’t die doing a 5K… Every since I started back in April this year I have walked nearly every day… for the past 2 months I have recorded my exercise… that sure does make a difference… I am thrilled to have the DESIRE to make it work this time…

Perhaps together we can all get through this and get to living our lives the way we should again.

I came to this website looking for friends and support so I have someone to talk to and understand where I am coming from when times get tough for me.
