My "Weight " Journey

  As long as I can remember I have always been big. I am big boned so I figured I would be big my whole life. There was no need to watch my food intake or exercise that much. Well I was wrong, it is important. If I want to live to see my children grow up I better fix my thinking. I did, and started many different diets. They worked a little bit but as soon as I quit the weight came back and then some.  So I got discouraged and gave up. I wasn't happy with how I was, embarrassed to be in public, and hated clothes shopping.
  Well I thought I was doomed but I heard about Trim Healthy Mama. A friend was doing it and her results amazed and inspired me. I jumped on board and guess what, it works. I eat better, exercise more, and my energy is back. I feel like a new person.
  I am sure someone who is reading is thinking, yeah works for you not me. Well no it won't if you don't try. This was very hard at first. It overwhelmed me, but I started with one meal at a time. I did a little exercise at a time. Nothing happens overnight, it takes time. You didn't gain your weight overnight, so don't expect to lose it overnight.
  Do you need some proof? Here are my pictures, first one is in August 2013 when I started. Second is in October 2013, and the most recent is December 2013. I have lost 75lbs. I am not at my goal weight but I am getting there. I am 25lbs from my first goal to lose 100lbs. This is a journey that I will be on the rest of my life. I will no longer let food rule me, I have a better understanding of my body. I am happy, healthy and getting trim to be a better wife, mother, and keeper of my home.
