I know, it's not pretty. And really, I'm not either with this lounging around on me. I have lost weight before so, I KNOW that I am capable of doing it again. This time though, I'm hoping to recruit my mother and possibly my sister and her husband as well. I know that if we all support each other, we can accomplish anything together!
I also realized that I DO, in fact, have motivation. My daughters. My little girls who need their mother to be around for the next many decades to run, play, and have fun with. I also want to do this for my own sanity and health as well. And so, here is a "before" picture:
This picture is the most recent that I have of me. It was taken back in mid October 2012 at a pumpkin farm. It was a beautiful day and I was able to wear a tank top. Little did I know that this picture was snapped of me. I'm kind of glad it was now though so I have an "I don't wanna look like this anymore" picture.
So, here it is... My goal: I want to drop 1/3 of my body weight by this time next year. That would be about 90lbs. I want to eat healthy meals, exercise daily, and stick to my goals all year and, hopefully, for life. This is the year of change. I will be a new me by the time I'm done. I will keep moving forward. I will stay on track. I will not punish myself if I slip up. I will not fully deny myself of the things that I love because, that's not fair to me. I will succeed! I want to be a "loser" and I will do whatever I have to to make sure that I get there! I hope you join me on my journey and offer positive reinforcement and encouragement. It sure is appreciated.
