Day 1

To date I have lived my life just as it comes with no regard to my health. Now at the not so old age of 26 I feel that I have established my family life and can now evaluate my situation. Don't get me wrong I know that I'm fat. But as a perpetual lazy person I saw no need to do anything about it. I like food and have a love hate relationship with it. I love it but hate what it does to my body.

My "wake-up call" came when I was watching T.V with my eldest son and he would turn around after every weigh loss commercial and say, " mom that's what you need." That is pretty devastating to hear and that's when I began to notice little things like I wasn't able to play with my children like I want to, and when i fix my hair my arms start to hurt while curling it. I wasn't always fat. In high school was was in shape and didn't really have to watch my weight, I know lucky me... so when I started to gain it never occurred to me to change my eating habits or to exercise more.

This is the start of a new journey in my life, one that I hope will be a good experience. I chose to blog about it because I would almost put money on the fact that somewhere there is someone out there just like me. A stay at home mom who revels in the glory days of old when she could eat a greasy burger and not have to do 2000 crunches to make up for it. So, for those of you who chose to read this blog you will be with me in my ups and downs, and just to make it interesting I am planning to post monthly pictures of progress or not progress for your entertainment.

Day 1 has started, and now I want a burger.

  1. Update: I started slow in my exercise today. I went for a walk with my family and I have to say it wasn't that bad.
