|Welcome to my site! Like many, I
have been struggling with weight loss for the last few years. Weight
loss, for me, is not an issue of trying to meet some societal ideal of the
perfect woman. It is about being the best person I can be. It
is about feeling healthier, having more energy, and being more the person
on the outside I feel I am on the inside. When I look in the mirror, I don't
see ME. While there are many things I like about myself, my eyes, my
upper back, my skin, I am still so tired. Tired of it being so difficult
to move. Tired of feeling uncomfortable in my clothes. Tired
of feeling so tired.
I wasn't always overweight. I was very
active as a child and teenager, and even got involved in weight training
at the campus gym as a young adult. But, I never practiced long-term
good eating habits, and have always used food as a way to deal with stress.
Now, 10 years and 2 children later, I am considerably overweight for my small
frame. While I keep trying to eat right, control my food portions, and make
good choices, there has always been one aspect missing: accountability.
Being accountable to myself hasn't been motivating enough. I
can always rationalize my bad choices so much easier when it is just myself
I am reporting to. That is why I have created this website. It
gives me the level of accountability and motivation I need to reach my
I find the easiest way to monitor my food intake
is a food journal, and using the Weight Watchers 123 Success program. I
will be publishing my food journal daily, my weight weekly, and my measurements
monthly. As I become more fit, I will add my workout and exercise plan.
I am not only focusing on the physical, but successful weight loss
and successful living incorporate the spiritual and mental as well. There
are things in my life that I am working on in those areas as well. While
I will not be focusing on those things on this site as much, this site is
a reflection of who I am in those areas, from my selection of the graphics
I have used on this site (Thank you 7Rings
Studios!), to scripture and poetry and other items I will be adding
Enjoy your visit, thank you for your support,
and If I can inspire anyone else, I am truly grateful. May we all reach
for our greatest potential together.
