Man oh man it it was not one thing it was another in the past week....
It has been almost three months since I decided to take this journey with a group of ladies, some of whom I knew and some not. When I first read the invite for the group I was hesitant but not really sure why now that I look back.
I missed the first meeting but decided to attend the next one and I can't really express how glad Iam that I did. It was a pretty standard meeting to start really everyone showed up we talked abit about our goals and weighed in. We started to chat and well before I knew it the time was almost ten thirty. I went home and was so excited about the opportunities that were running through my head.
I had decided that night that I was going to take back my sanity, my self respect, my health and to ultimately lose weight. I did have some ideas as to how much I would like to lose but was not sure as to how much I would actually lose. Pretty much my entire life I had some sort of weight issue, I was always trying to lose weight and then ultimately when I did it would come back most of the time with some extra friends. Not really untill I had my children did I really start to feel not very happy with myself or the way I looked.
When I moved back home with my two oldest children I had my entire family around and a big circle of friends but for some reason I always felt so alone. I really didn't talk about it with anyone and continued on with my life. Thankfully I hadmy children they really helped me just pick it up and continue on.
After the birth of my third daughter I moved to the lower mainland and was planning on starting a new life. I joined the meet up web page which led me to here. In the last three months I have gained control of my life again. I started with my eating habits I have gone from snacking on crappy foods to having a stocked fridge of veggies and fruits. My daughters have really supported me in this decision as well, we are all eating more healthier and area feeling great.
I have also with the support of the group started to exercise on a regular basis, I am not going to lie it was terribly difficult to start but it is getting easier. On the days that I try to put it off the kids and ladies in the group are right there pushing and encouraging me.
I may have not met my weight loss goals yet but I know that with the support from my new friends that it is no longer something that I want to do but a goal that I am going to reach in the not to distant future. So if you are reading this and want to lose the weight get healthier and take back your life, you can do it. If you don't have a good support system on your side find yourself one and don't let anything stop you.
