following: MY WAY
performance: losing 0.4 lb a week
This October I turned 50.
Although I hail from a large family,my family is not large. In fact,I am the biggest of our bunch,even when my weight fluctuated between a size 4 & 7.(To wear this size again is one of my many goals that I will achieve)
After giving birth to both of my children(who by the way are now remarkable men!) I remained between a 4 & 7.
I didn't become obese (which is what my weight is considered for my 5'2" frame)until I CHOSE to be,the year my children were ages 9 & 13. (Wrong choices on my part made an extremely difficult life for 8 years.)
When my boys set out on their own(& voiced concerns of their own over my weight)I decided I needed to do something about it before it was too late. I shrunk my size in half(24-14)but wanted to halve it again to be at my "happy,feel good" weight/size.
However,life isn't always as planned & I allowed my life to become side-tracked (for the last time )in this regard.
Today,I'm 4 years into my (last) marriage & I am once again asking my body to forgive me: Not with words of promises broken,but with all that I will do(& wont do)from this day forward for the rest of my life.
This day I begin not just a weight loss program but a life-long transformation journey!My body & I have a long road to travel,but that's okay...we are enjoying getting to know each other again.
