I have been overweight my whole life practically. i always tell people I am fat and happy, that is just not true. I never have the energy I should at 31 years old, I cannot physically chase my children around and run and play ball and everything else I so desperately want to do, because I am fat! I am at a point in my life that I really want to lose the weight. No fad diets, no shelling out cash to go to meetings, but taking charge of my life and making changes in the way I cook and the amount I eat. I am blogging about this to keep myself in check and to have my friends and family help me along my journey. I want to be held accountable for my actions and so I dont eat to compensate for anything else I will blog. Dont worry if I ramble or just have whimsical thoughts, its so I dont eat out of boredom.I am at the heaviest I have ever been.
