Lately, I have not been liking what I see in the mirror. I look like I am pregnant, which I am not.

My weight issues are like a roller coaster. I found my daily journal that I had started way back in September of 2010. The goal of losing the weight got way off track. The last entry I had made was back in November of 2011. I believe that was around the time I was having serious issues with the numbness in my hands due to my MS. (It feels like my hands are being used as sandbags. There is a constant tingling/rubbing and heaviness.)

I had lost the motivation to exercise or be on the right track of eating healthy. All I wanted to do was sleep, play on the computer, and eat! That shows with today’s weight of 214.5 lbs. (My last recorded weight measurement was 195.5 lbs. back in January of 2013.)

The image I see in the mirror, and the journey of one of my “Firecracker” friends, is the motivation needed to turn my habits around.

My friend, Kristina, has grown in many ways since we first met on one of the groups on SparkPeople. Her “then & now” pictures are amazing. She now runs marathons on a regular basis. She is my inspiration for getting back on track!

It is now time to start yet ANOTHER journey to my goal of weighing-in in the 130’s bracket. Today I start off, AGAIN, at 214.5 lbs. I have about 90 lbs. to lose! My water bottle is at the ready. I already have fruits and veggies in the house. It is getting warmer outside. NO MORE EXCUSES!
