Just Getting Started!!!!

I started my journey on Jan 4th, 2010 at a starting weight of 209.2lbs. I have been battling with my weight since my first child was born... 10 years ago. That is too long to go with being uncomfortable in my own skin. I've done the "diet" thing worked out, lost weight, stopped doing what was right and gain the weight right back again. Well, this time I am more determined than ever. This is going to be a lifestyle change. Something I do everyday until God takes me! My food intake will not consist of just veggies, grilled chicken, fish and fruits. I will consume the right foods in the right proportions. Fast Foods will not be the food of choice on my daily menu. I will commit to working out, not just to help me along my journey but, because it's good for my body. I LOVE my body, I NEED my body! It's time for me to start being KIND to my body!!!

My goal was to be less than 200lbs by Jan 31st. No special reason, I just didn't want to be in the 200’s. I weighed in on Jan 31st and was so happy to not just see 199 but 198.4Lbs!!! YES!!! I went .6lbs over my set goal.  It really shows that hard work and dedication does pay off and though I’ve fallen, I always got back up and pushed hard!!!
I don’t think I could have done it without MFP, the great friends I’ve met there that always helped me push forward and all the readers of my Blog, your comments and support means the world to me. Thank you!!!

My journey is far from over, so I’m moving on to my next goal. Lose 8lbs by March 1st, my high goal is 10lbs by March 1st.

Changes I’m making in February will be:
- Commit 30 days to 
Jillian Michael’s "
30 Day Shred"
- will incorporate riding the bike, 10 Min Trainer Yoga and some upper body   strength training every other day!!!
- Stay committed to eating clean.

I’m looking forward to the hard work and to you all motivating me along the way!!!
