Default Hello to my new Fit Day Support Group. My name is Teresa ans I'm a Carbo Overloader!

Today got on the scale and it read time to get healthy. I'm tired all the time, I'm setting bad food examples for my kiddos and my jeans are way too tight. The zippers are ready to bust out! I'm joining a gym tomorrow even though I have a elliptical sitting in my living room so I would use it anddo I uh NO. So I will pay the money each month to live a healthier lifestyle. So this is not about looking thin this is about living a healthy life so I can live longer and feel better. So i'm excited to share my journey with you all and encourage you as you encourage me. One thing I will commit too is staying connected so in the great days and bad days we can be there for oneanother. Excited to meet my new friends!

Welcome aboard. I know that I didn't write that same post last year, but seriously I could have - word for word. If I can do this, you can do this. It always helps me to equate living healthy to loving your children unconditionally, it's one of those things you have to do everyday weather you want to or not....
