Are you ready?

I'm so sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been trying to get things moving to start doing the things I've been dreaming about, so my time is even more limited than it was before -- which means my 30 free minutes a day I had is now about 2.4 minutes! ha.... kidding.... but really, I'm sorry I've been gone for so long.

I would like to say that I'm still loving being skinny again!!! I have stuck to my goal weight and not gained an ounce back AT ALL and even started eating "not so great" there for a while. By no means am I telling any of you to start eating bad again or go back to your "old" ways because we all know if that happens, the weight will come back and it will be one more failure to add to the weight loss attempts. I'm just saying I'm still holding strong at my current weight and have since started eating healthier and really paying close attention to my body and the way I feel. I try to be more consious with how much water I'm drinking or not, if I'm bored or really hungry. I don't buy the snacks or unhealthy things I know I will choose over something I should eat because if it's not in the house, I can't eat it!

Since dropping the weight, I'm so much happier with me as a person. I'm a better mom and wife and I'm just overall better to myself. I don't beat myself up for having a brownie these days, instead I enjoy it and move on. I look at myself in the mirror and smile because finally I've done something FOR MYSELF and it shows. I am slowly buy surely learning to take care of ME first and my family second. It's not a selfish act, it's actually being unselfish. I'm making myself healthy, happier and stronger, which in turn is giving my husband and children a much more pleasant mother and wife to be around! I know they are noticing the difference and at the end of the day, that's what matters. When I can go to bed at night and feel good about myself, in every possible way, I know I've given my all and that is something to be proud of.

So, for any of you that are following this that are losing weight by taking the diet pills, or maybe just following to witness my journey in turning my life around, I hope in some way I can help you change whatever it is you feel you want to improve on. That's why I started this blog. Not only to track my weight loss and share my story, but to help anyone I can by showing people that anyone can lose weight, change their attitude, be someone different or find their place in this world. I'm here to give anyone the "proof" they need to see that they too can do anything.

For me, losing weight was my first step and since then, there have been so many doors that have opened for me. My life is taking turns in directions I never imagined and I can only pray for more blessings to come and that whatever struggles I might come to, I will be able to get over them and learn from it and move on.

I took my first step towards change.... are you ready to take yours?
