In Nov of 2007 I started a new journey life. I could no longer stand to be who I was! I weighed 232 pounds. My body hurt and my heart hurt. I still can remember where I was and what I was wearing when I decided to make the change. I started by my small and I mean small goals. Like only three sweets a day. To move for 90 seconds (90 seconds felt like forever) Over the next four and haft years I was able to work a program that worked for me. Totally change my life and weight in on March 7th 2010 at 142.5 pounds. I was able to maintain that weight thru eating healthy delicious food and exercising three time a week. I was active on the weekends. Reaching new goals and enjoying my life to the fullest. I had my share of up and downs that just life and I had learned new tools and could deal with life. However everything I had learned. Everything I had accomplish. All the hard work and pain I had made it through could not had prepared me for what came into my life next. On June 2nd 2012 I received news that my Father now had and expiration date. He was released from the hospital and placed on hospices and sent home to be made comfortable. Being his only daughter, the only one left for him. ( My mother had died 17 years earlier and he had never be able to fill her place) I left my husband my children my job without a second thought to go be with my father and provide the 24 hour care that he needed. Fast forward to today. Somewhere while taking care of him. I forgot how to take care of myself. I had lost my “new self” I returned to old eating habits. Not only did I not have time to exercise. I found reasons not too and today my body hurts and my heart hurts. I have all the tools. I have the knowledge. I know how to lose the weight. But I have forgotten how. I chosen to forget how. But today I when I had the courage to step on the scale and then the to step on the “exercise machine” I remember how good it felt to exercise how good it felt to push myself to not be able to breath from a good workout. I made a choice to remember today how to take care of myself. I started a new journey in life today. And I may not weigh 232 pounds on the scale. But it sure feels like it and this journey is going to be just as hard. But I just have to remember I already have to tools I already have the knowledge. I know how to do this. I just have to do it!

Remember how good you will feel when you are back on track. Just a few days of eating right and some exercise will make your head lighter and you feel better. Good luck! You are a very good daughter!

Quick and easy food suggestions
On days like that, I like to set up a meal in my crock pot so food is ready for me when I get home. Minestrone is a good one for that.
