It seems it is now my turn for a lot of things: 1) to become healthier, 2) to fit myself into my schedule to get said health accomplished, 3) to hold myself responsible for MY actions (or lack thereof), 4) to introduce myself, lol
I keep welcoming everyone else cause I wanted to jump right in, and didn't even think... oh, might be a good idea to introduce myself as well! LOL! Sorry in advance if I bore, will try the Reader's Digest version here. Like many of you, bigger most of my life.. but always was able to maintain that "healthy" even with being bigger... very athletic and such. Until.... (and this is usually what gets us all) and here we are today. So... been "good weight" before at age 14, gained and then many more added by time I was 17... started to lose again at 18... ended up at good weight again before birth of child #2... then child 3 put me back over the line, lol. Directly following, had a short battle with a cancer scare, 2 yrs later issues began with my heart (though I didnt know it was my heart)... took 4 yrs to find the answers and discovered was a birth defect... got that surgery to fix... and then....well, as you see, obstacle after obstacle... then it was the kids' issues... and MIL's health.... and working.... you name it, it popped up and got in the way. So...
Now it's my turn. My turn to count. My turn to be important enough to take up my time to get to where I need to be; not just for health, but for happiness, confidence, and a better outlook. It's my turn to do what I have to do to succeed. It's my turn to be the one I do the research for to aid in success, and my turn to gain the support I need emotionally to accomplish this
I get scared that I won't succeed... I am not young like I was, have entered peri-menapause, have a lot of obstacles... and then I remember... a positive mind set will lead to positive results. Why worry about what MIGHT happen when I have a proven track record of what CAN happen?
Ok, enough... but wanted to do this a bit more formerly and hope I didn't bore any of you
I sure could use the support/encouragement..and to also feel as though I can do the same for you all! Thanks, ~Star~
