This is a photo of me around that age. I can't believe that my mother saw a fat little girl. Maybe she needs to talk things out, maybe her mother insisted that she diet at a young age. I am not sure. I have touched on this, about this photo in particular in a previous blog post.
The journey begins again. I have been on Weight Watchers off an on for 13 years now. I have lost a total of 100 lbs, but have gained it all back...and then some. I have learned a lot over the journey. The whole, not a diet thing...yes. I get that, but I am going to have to make a conscious effort on what I put into my mouth for the rest of my life. I have made that change, and am ready to recommit. I have been dilligent about working out...almost to the point of being obsessive. That is okay, if I am gonna go all OCD over something right now, working out is okay!!! I have to hold myself accountable. I am shouting it out to the world. I AM tackling this beast. I AM going to win. I AM going to be stronger and healthier. I AM going to run that 5K next January. I AM going to fit into that skirt (and I AM going to post pics of said skirt). :)
Thanks for supporting me on this journey. I need all of the help I can get.
Love to All.
