So starting with the truth.....
The truth is that I have been dieting for the "better" or worse part of 16 years. I have gained and lost probably hundreds of pounds.
My highest weight ever was 255, I got there or almost there 3 times, about 5 years in to my happy marriage, we loved to go out to eat, drink beer while bowling late sometimes on the weekends and we also loved going to the movies and OVER indulging on buttered popcorn!!! :) yummmmm
Then I lost 50lbs or so, and gained that back again, then lost it again to get pregnant. Then got right back to 250 before delivery, lost that....
And the cycle continued I got down to 183 durnig a contest at Metro South Church one year, and then took up running and kept most of that weight off for almost 2 years.
Then I don't know what happened really, life just got away from me and I gained all but 5lbs of that back.
I was doing GREAT the first part of this December untill I gave into my addicition and lived on mostly cookies and cheeseballs. :/
So with those two weeks behind me... I'm READY to move forward!!! yay!! With the support of my husband, and you all.
I also have to tell you, truthfully, I'm not pretending to have it all figured out, I know occasionally I will fail, I will dissappoint myself, you and my creator. But by the grace of God I'll get there! I CANNOT WAIT TO NOT CARRY THIS BURDEN ANY LONGER!!!
I'll get going on a plan of action and please feel free to post what you are doing to get in shape physically, mentally or spiritually. I could certainly use the encouragement and I know so many others could too.
Thank you in advance for joining or following me in this journey.
Love is all you need!!! <3 And I've got plenty!!
