Beginning…what does this mean? When does starting over no longer become the beginning again? Starting over describes my life countless times. Being overweight is what I have been my entire life. For as long as I can remember I have always been considered “plus size”. I have tried countless apps, fads, and calorie counting books. I have tried winging it and I have tried doing this with friends. Losing weight isn’t easy and never will be. It can’t define who I am. My weight isn’t what defines me. It is what limits me. I technically started this blog two years ago and couldn’t truly commit. I told myself once I lost my first ten pounds I would jump in and tell my story! Well here I am, back at the beginning, but this time I am 10 pounds lighter!
I decided to do Weight Watchers. I started Jan. 30, 2016 and my third weigh in is tomorrow. I don’t have a meeting location near me so I am just doing their online option. I feel driven and supported. I think I found what works for me.
Life has changed quite a bit since I started this site two years ago. I got a new job, we moved to a new state, and my husband began writing his first book. It is freeing to see him so truly happy with what he is doing with his life. Now it is my turn!
For anyone who follows this I am hoping to expand this into more than just my weight loss journey. I want to inspire anyone to stretch for their dreams. Best wishes on your personal journeys and keep following for updates!
