First, I have to say everyone here that I've been reading about from success stories to those struggling, you are all amazing. I need this support and to be around like-minded people so much and I'm near tears already while writing this.
I decided today, the first, would be my C-day(change day). It's the start for me to begin on to a more healthy lifestyle and lose the weight that I've gained. I've topped the scales higher then I've ever been and have taken the jokes from my family and friends and the looks from strangers for too long. When my 8 year old daughter finally told me on Christmas Day that she thought I was just so very fat, too fat to eat Christmas dinner with the family, that clenched it for me.
I'm 5 feet and almost 2 inches and I weigh 228 pounds. But from my understanding and the doctors, I'm supposed to weigh somewhere around 120 something for my height and bone structure? Just last November I weighed 242 and I'm unsure how I lost those 14 pounds but it doesn't matter.
Now, I've struggled with weight since puberty hit me, I'm now 30 years old. the year before I gave birth to my daughter, I weighed 147 pounds and I was happy. Now, I'd just be happy were I to reach 150 pounds. And that's my goal weight.
Today, I've begun my regiment. Keeping track of the foods I eat and I begin walking our mile long driveway. Going to walk it twice every day. And my sister in law, whom is joined to Gold's gym, will be taking me along twice a week so I can take advantage of her membership which allows her to bring someone for free every time to do a limited number of things there. I'm looking forward to this.
I apologize for my rambling of a post here, lol, and you'll notice this more often when I go to post in the future. I'm just so excited to start and to talk with others that know what I'm going through and more!!
Again, you guys are so amazing to read about. So much inspiration here!
