Hi! My weight struggle has been my constant companion throughout my life. I have so much to say about it that I don't even know where to start, so I'll just tell you where I am now, and share the story of how I got here through blogs over time.

My Christian faith is an very large part of who I am. I believe my weight problem is more than a simple food and exercise problem. I am strongly convicted that FOR ME it is a sin issue. I know that my physical condition is NOT what God desires for me. I know that He has called me to be healthy, and I know exactly what I need to do to be healthy, yet I CHOOSE not to do it. I love to eat and hate to exercise, and I continually give in to the desires of my flesh rather than doing what I know is right. That is nothing but pure rebellion!

I'm usually able to get the whole eating thing under control for a few months at a time and drop a few pounds, but the exercise is another story. I started working with a trainer a 3 months ago and that has helped a GREAT DEAL! However, my eating has been so horrible I've been working my butt of with little results. I'm determined to get both ends working at the same time so I can experience some real change!

My Goals:
I have lots of goals, but the big idea is to develop a habit of eating healthy and exercising regularly.

My first short term goal is getting out of the 300s once and for all! I want to reach that goal by Nov. 1

Next to weigh less than I did when my first child was born 20 years ago... 279

Then I want to hit my lowest weight since 1995... 253

Then it's off to ONEderland... 199

Then it's what I weighed when I got married... 180

Then it's my ultimate goal... 160!!

My Program:
Common sense eating! No junk and reasonable portions.

No eating after 7pm except for some light popcorn

Drink LOTS of water!

Follow the exercise plan I get from my wonderful trainer, Megan
