My life goal has been to live a better life than I did growing up. I did things in the order I felt right: go to college, get job, get married, have kids. In 5 years of marriage I we have lived in 3 different cities and have a 4 year old and 3 year old.
I have been struggling with my weight since the birth of my 2nd child. I didn't really see it as an issue before that. Really what was I to expect when I had two children 13 months apart? The biggest struggle I have is staying motivated. I go through spurts of being motivated and living well to not wanting to do anything but play around on FaceBook.
I think keeping a record of the roads I have travelled in this journey. When I get frustrated I can look back and see my progress or learn from my mistakes. I feel this forum will help keep me accountable. I have used SparkPeople in the past, but become overwhelmed by it.
I will try my best not to offend my readers, but I really don't want to use my filter while journalling. I want to put my honest, thoughts, opinions, struggles, and triumphs out there. I hope to inspire and challenge you and me when it comes to taking the steps to change my lifestyle for the better.
I appreciate and welcome any questions or comments you may have. I believe it will help keep me going - inspire me. I think it will challenge my thinking and make wiser decisions. I am interested in all points of view. Please do not get nasty as I am not an expert. I am learning and trying to figure out what will work for me.
