The hardest part of this journey was beginning. The heart wrenching part was stepping on the scale and seeing my weight in a public setting. I watched the arm going around and bounce in an area that was shocking..
I have never ever shared my weight with anyone beyond my doctor. I dated my exboyfriend for YEARS and he never knew. I am going to share it with my readers.
When I started this, I weighed 284 pounds and I am 5' 5". That is technically, morbid obesity. I wasn't even that heavy when I was 9 months pregnant. I pretty much burst into tears.
Seriously, guess how much Green Bay's quarterback Aaron Rodgers weighs?
The 6'2" quarterback weighs in at 225 pounds. I weighed more than him.. That was SHAMEFUL. Since that day I have lost 19 lbs by cutting calories and carbs as well as increasing my activity level and lifting weights. I might not seems like much but its a big success to me and that time on the scale my tears were joyful.

In January, like many people I thought, " hey, I need to get into shape.." Then finally on February 9th, I did something about it. I walked into a gym and joined. It was terrifying. Exciting too. I started going to work out on my lunch breaks and eating better. I feel sooo much better than I did before. I've lost 19 pounds so far.
I have a big goal to reach. I'm hoping to blog at least once a week to publicly share my successes and set backs and maybe I can inspire someone else.

It's been almost a year since I left the blogging world. I briefly attempted to start a new blog but I figured I'd come back home like a good long lost daughter.
My life has changed a bit and my blog will reflect that. I'm now a single mom who is struggling with making a lifestyle change to be healthier and lose weight.
I have missed blogging and reading my friends blogs.
It's good to be back! :)
