Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

Yes, it is.  Those of you that know me, probably already know that I have struggled with obesity all of my adult life.  I have tried so many diets and my weight has gone up and down just like a yoyo!  I am getting off that roller coaster ride.    I am tired of living to eat.  It truly is time to eat to live.  I have 16 beautiful grandchildren.  I want to be around to see the youngest of them graduate from high school, graduate from college, get married and have children!  I want to enjoy life, not hide away ashamed of myself and suffering from the damage that I am doing to myself!  I have tooo much going for me for that.  So, I made a decision and that is to lose this weight and lose it for a lifetime.    I will take you on my journey one step at a time.  I will post a before picture but just not yet.   I have it taken and ready but I am not ready to put it all out there for the world to see just yet.  In doing this, I also believe that I am honoring my God.  With His strength and help I will do this!  So bear with me. It truly will be a journey. I have made the decision to create HEALTH in my life.

Well done Marcia for this decision, I think I'm just like you but I need somebody to encourage me along the way, as you said with God's help we can do it. I have cut down on cakes and sweets and I have lost 2 Kilos in a month, it is little I know but as they say "slowly does it".
Good Luck!
Sue.

I will follow your journey too Marcia. I haven't weighed in for few days. I try to weigh only once a week. I don't have the nerve to put up a before picture...maybe when I get the weight off I will. Good luck to you.
