New Beginning

Ok, so my girl Genie started one of these for her weight loss plan a couple of days ago and she has totally inspired me.

Anyways, with that being said I am going to air out my stuff too....because I know that I am going to need the support. Long story short...Im a fat ass right now! I use to weight about 100lbs less 6 years ago and it is tearing me a part to look in the mirror and see something and someone that I am not happy with. So I have decided that I need to take control of the situation.

I started gaining weight when I left for college. I started working more, later hours, 18 units a semester and I was homesick. So I turned to eating and not taking care of myself. Gradually, I just got bigger, bigger and bigger. And now I am at a point where it is embarrassing to hang around some of my friends, because I don't want to be looked at as "the fat girl" I already stick out, I am 5'10" JESUS.

I want to be able to play around with my son and not get winded, I want to play volleyball and softball again. I don't think there is anything worse than knowing that I use to be a serious athlete, and now I couldn't run around a track if you paid me!

Right now I am 5"10 and 260lbs. And I know some of you may read this and not believe this...but let me be the first to tell you that the color black is a fat girls best friend! :) But all jokes aside I am moving to Atlanta soon and when I come back to visit California for my good friend Genie's wedding I want to look like the "new and improved" old me! For some of you who are new to knowing me, you have no idea what I use to look like...but I will make sure to post old pictures.

My official start date is October 26, 2009 (This is when my work shift is going to change to days instead of the 5pm-2am I am doing now)

I feel like this will be the easiest way for me to form a schedule when I am working in the day.

So all I need is your love, support and prayers because I know it is not going to be easy and I need to take action now. I owe it to myself and my son to be a healthy, happy, and confident woman. Please follow me on my journey, and in the process I hope to inspire and encourage other women out there to take control of their lives.

  2. I am with you Girl! I will start with you on the 26th. I do want to get healthier for my son. Can't wait for updates! God Bless

  3. wow! that's so awesome that you're really starting to take the initiative ! i think every girl goes through those feelings of insecurity and it's really all in your head. as soon as you get your head in the game, followed by supplemental support from your friends and family - nothing can touch you! until you start your diet/exercise regimen, warm your body up the week before and go low carb! i swear it's a lot less painful than plain chicken breast and brown rice.. haha. YOU GOT THIS!! :)

  4. YAY we have blogs. SOOO excited


  5. Girl you are beautiful! I hope this journey creates much happiness for you. Good luck on this journey for you will be successful. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. You can do it girl!
