It's been a while since I posted; I've been a little preoccupied with the sweetest little girl. I'm very happy to report that my Dr. has finally released me to begin physical activity again...woohoo! I've been itching to work out and make some changes in my life.
Today is the day that I begin a new lifestyle-- I'm heading to my first Weight Watchers meeting. I've done Weight Watchers before, and I know without a doubt that it works. The last time I started it I wasn't fully ready to take on the challenge. At this point in my life I have decided that it's time to make some huge changes in the way I eat and work out. I'm not only doing it for me, but also for the sweet little girl that's laying in my arms. I want to be able to teach her how to take care of herself, so she never has to worry with body image issues like I have.
One of my dear friends and old roommate began her WW journey back in July, and as of today she is down 60 lbs. I'm so proud of her. She has been a huge inspiration. My overall goal for weight loss is 45 lbs, but this time it's more about making a lifestyle change than losing the weight. I know if I make this change the weight will melt away.
Please keep me in your prayers as I begin this journey.
