Hey, hey!!
Im a 28 year old single mother of 3 WONDERFUL kiddos....2 girls, 1 boy. They are the love of my life. I would do anything for them...including getting healthy and thats what brings me here.
See, Im a little overweight...weighing 202 and 5'5"....according to the charts Im mordidly obese, but I'll just say fat. :)
I have many reasons why I want to lose weight...I'll just name a couple. First and foremost, my health. Diabetes and heart disease run thru my family and Im wanting to do everything I can to prevent me from getting that. Secondly, my kids...I want to be around for many years to see them grow and watch them begin their own families. I want to be able to run and play with my kids without getting out of breath in the first 10 minutes...and I want to stop feeling self conscious in front of other mommies because Im overweight. And I'll stop at the third reason, just because I want to look and feel sexier.
I've always had self image problems because of the way I was raised and Im tired of feeling like Im not good enough. Im thru letting my weight control my mind...Im taking my body over!
This will be a long road with many bumps along the way...I will get pissed off...I will fight...I will yell, cry, scream...but I will succeed this time. I have faith in myself!
This last year and a half has been rough for me but Im loving who I am becoming finally...and Im stronger and have more willpower and will be the best me I can be.

Thanks for reading...hope I didnt bore you too much! :)Check in every now and then to see how Im doing!
