Weight One Minute!

Ok, so if there is any one thing that gets me down or makes me feel like crap - it's my weight!!! I have gained approximately 5.6 lbs per year since my first child was born. Pretty pathetic. It just sort of crept up on me. There were things like illnesses and surgeries that happened along the way which sometimes made diet & exercise hard. However most of the time the biggest obstacle was just myself - pun intended!

At any rate, my weight is what stops me dead in my tracks on my new road to confidence. I know that I should not feel defined by what I weigh or the size I wear or how I look. However, society says otherwise. More importantly, I want to be able to do the things I enjoy - like walk upstairs without having a coronary. Lol!

No More Excuses! My weight is now my worst enemy and I am going to battle. Off sugar and most carbs for almost 3 weeks, and am down 18 lbs. I feel like I am on the right track. I've added a new "ticker" to my blog (see right) to track my progress.

That inner "hot babe" of mine is just dying to get out, and it's time to set her free!!!
