Let the journey begin!!!

Well here I am chronicling my journey for the entire world to see. I'm hoping that this new step will just bring me closer to my goal. Sometime accountability is just what we all need to stay on track.

My journey begins with a woman who at 38, has high blood pressure and early diabetes. I have struggled with my weight my entire life but ballooned to my highest at 330 lbs last October(maybe more but that is all my scale would register). I started a journey to health and wellness along with 2 other wonderful women from work. We decided that it was time to make some changes and together began walking our coffee breaks rather than eating them.

I am comitting my self to a year long journey, good bad or otherwise. I have joined weight watchers and after week one I have lost 2 lbs and am presently weighing 313lbs. We girls from work call our efforts Operation Get Hot and together we aquasize a minimum of 2 days per week and I am trying to add 2 more days for myself. I am doing this for those that I love and cherish so dearly, for where will my babies be without a mother???

Today I feel great; so far I have had a sucess and can ride that emotion for awhile, hoping to go for a walk tomorrow and keep my momentum high. We are celebrating my son's 20th birthday tomorrow so I will need to be extra careful of what I am putting into my mouth, I really like cake and that could be my downfall, but I will not worry about that but rejoice in my success and plan for the future ones to avoid failure.
