Loosing It

I haven't been blogging for over six weeks because I have been focused on other things, like....loosing 24lbs! I finally did it. Every January for the last 15 years I would set a goal of loosing 25lbs by my birthday in May and every year by the end of January I would give up. Food became a comfort for me many years ago and because I had always been thin I wasn't worried about gaining weight at all. Being fat was the last thing in the world I ever thought I would become. My anger, self loathing and poor health finally motivated me to change my lifestyle. It hasn't been easy but I am so grateful for the success. For the first time in over 15 years I am looking forward to summer. My next goal will be 15 more pounds by the first of September. Happy!

  7. Mom, I cannot tell you how proud I am of you and how fabulous you look!! I am sad to hear you had self loathing. You have done something very incredible and difficult to do and should feel as proud of yourself as I am of you! Love you.
