As most mothers/wives know we spend so much time worrying about our kids, our husbands, our houses, etc...
I'm guilty of worrying about everyone but me. I've never taken the time to just focus on myself and what I need and what I want because I was so worried about the happiness and well being of everyone else in my home.

On my last birthday I turned 40. Though it's not old, it's forced me to do some thinking. I've been overweight pretty much all my life and for once I'd love to not be.

I'll always find an excuse to put my weight on the back burner. I can always find a way to ignore what my body looks like or how little energy I have. But as I get older I realize ignoring a problem doesn't make it nonexistent. It just makes things get worse.

I've tried all the fad diets out there. None worked for me. I've come to the realization that what works for someone else may not work for me.

I have to change my behaviors. I got into huge habits that have cost me huge. Eating 3 chocolate bars on the way from the grocery store or eating a bag of cookies while watching TV at night isn't going to do it for me.

I'm no longer trying to diet. I'm trying to change some very bad habits therefore going towards a "LIFESTYLE CHANGE".

It's a journey that may never have an ending but will have a very definite impact on my life.

Here's to the journey of my life and each bump I may hit on the way.
