I think the title says it all. I want to be fluffy no more! I will be 31 this year and have struggled all of my life with my weight. Up, down, up, down, and lately it's been up up up up. I weight more now than the day I gave birth to my 3.5 year old. Needless to say, it's out of hand. About 7.5 years ago I started to get my act together because I knew that I would be getting engaged soon and wanted a jump start on weight loss. I did weight watchers and step classes at the gym and lost about 60 lbs. I was 130 on my wedding day! Fast forward to present day and I'm around 210 and I'm only 5foot 4. Yikes! I did WW about a year ago and tried doing it on line with a friend, we both lost about 20 lbs and gained it back. Her and I are too much of the same type of person, health wise I think we are toxic for each other. We talk about it constantly and how we are going to change, how this time will be different, etc. well, all this talk and we are both overweight and desperately need a swift kick to our big butts! I know of one of us really succeeds it would help the other tremendously and I hope this will be the time for us! It doesn't help that my husband loves to eat junk and is skinny as a rail! He is very supportive but I always seem to forget I can't eat the same stuff he does or it will be with me forever. I'm so careful about what my son eats so that he is healthy and I want to be a good example for him. I honestly feel like his pediatrician probably is silently judges me when they ask about his diet and eating habits during check ups. Who is going to believe that the overweight mom feeds her kid right? Well, I do. I may let him have 1/2 a muffin but then I turn around and eat 2. You know how it goes. I want better for him than for myself but I won't be able to keep doing that if I fall over dead. I need a goal to work for (my wedding was an amazing goal!) so I decided that I want to walk the Princess 1/2. Running just seems crazy for me and I'd rather have an obtainable goal and them finish the Princess and say, next year I'm going to run it, instead of I wish I would have walked and been able to finish. I'd like to do it in 2013 but I'm not sure if I will be ready or not. I hope to sign up for WW in the next few days, I missed the only Saturday meetings they had, closed today and tomorrows meeting i can't find a sitter for. I'm hoping Tuesday will work out. I went for my first walk today, 2.06 miles in 37:07. Considering I haven't been doing anything, I am proud I started. I hope you will join me in my journey to get healthy and hopefully complete the princess!
