If you would ask me to describe my weight over the years I would have to call it a roller coaster ride. I have ups and downs, then bigger ups and bigger downs. I have lost and gained the same 50 pounds probably 3 times over. I have made a commitment to myself to finally get off the ride and live a healthy life. I am the only one in the house that has weight problems, my husband is very thin without trying, and so are my 3 boys. So, I have come to the conclusion that I will have to modify my relationship with food. It has always been for when I was happy I would eat, when I was sad I would eat, just because I would eat. I didn't want to feel left out at the dinner table making a big dinner for everyone else, and me just eating a salad, but I have come to realize that it's not what you are eating it is the company you are in. I can eat healthy and enjoy life I don't have to have cake at a birthday to celebrate, I can just spend time with the birthday girl/boy. I am training my brain as well as my body, and 6 weeks into this program I am loving it, the weight is coming off a little slower then I would like but hey I have lost 17.8 pounds in 6 weeks that is nothing to be ashamed of and I am accepting that :) I am a different woman and I am proud!! :)

Need True Accountability Partner
I need to see if I can find someone who lives locally to me that can be in contact with me daily by phone or email, even possibly go to the gym with me, I have a membership to LA fitness which allows me to bring a guest whenever I want to, so you can come with me for free!! I am tired of the up and down and really want to finish this once and for all, I just need a bit of help!! Let me know, I live in Menifee,CA work in Lake Elsinore, CA!!
