The beginning of my journey to better health & a better self image

This is not a sponsored post, it's not a giveaway, it is my life!

I have struggled with my weight for pretty much my entire adult life... and probably most of my teenage years... about 3 years ago my husband started a new job and fitness was really pushed there. I felt like he was going to be all hot and fit (He is anyway) and I didn't want to be the fat girl with the skinny man.

I started working out HARD! I lost about 15 pounds, it felt good although no where near as much as I needed to loose. I plateaued, I got discouraged, I kind of gave up. I decided that I just was going to have to be happy being overweight. I gained back that 15 lbs & more... I wasn't happy...

I have felt like I am going crazy! Sometimes depressed & full of anger! I finally decided that I needed to do something. After a breakdown I decided that I would take advantage of an offer my dad had made a while back. I joined Weight Watchers. That was 5 weeks ago. It's been hard. I have learned so much about myself. I think I may even be a little happier now. I will succeed at this! I need to for myself, my husband and my kids!

After 4 weigh ins, I am happy to say that I have lost 11 lbs! I have about 75 more pounds to go before I am at "goal".

I hope you all we be here with me as I plan on sharing my successes and my failures. Maybe I can help you a little bit too! It might be a wild ride!

I will be posting about my Weight Watchers journey here and also as a guest blogger on my friend Whit's WW Blog!
