Ok, I love food. And I dont just mean love to eat it I read cookbooks and watch cooking shows and I think that is what stops me from losing weight.  I have wanted to loss weight all my life but something in my life changes and makes me eat.  I got pregnant with my daughter at 19 and then had a hard time with that and gained lots of weight.  Shortly after her first birthday now hubby went to Iraq and that really did a number on me.  Then I started lossing weight, I was doing really good and then I got pregnant with my son and packed the weight back on.  And that was almost 3 years ago cause he will be three in April.  I love to make excuses on why I cant loss weight, weather, time you name it.  Up until today.  I was looking at pictures of myself from highschool and started to cry.  I miss the old me.  In the last 8 years I have gained 50 pounds from where I was when I graduated high school.  And now is the time for me to loss it.  I wrote out a list of things that I want to do this year and have posted them on the fridge.  I also put a picture of what I want to look like. I need to do this for me and no one else.  I want to be able to run around with my kids and no get tired.  Let me tell you I dont look overweight but I am.  I am 5'8'' and weight about 180.  I want to weight about 130 by the end of the year.  I have an eliptical that I am going to start using daily.  After about a month hubby is going to help me start lifting weights which we also have.  He is a huge health buff. Oh yeah plus my 10 year class reunion is this summer and to be honest I want to look HOT.  Today I wrote a list of all the stuff I dont want to eat and that is also on my fridge and my big one is POP.  I love POP.  So now I am going to lug a water bottle with me everywhere that way I have no excuses.  I am starting to pack my lunch for work and get up 2 hours before the kids in the morning and work out and then after they go to bed at night.  Hubby's brother is also getting married this summer and I want to look nice for that as well.  I want to be the old me again.  I know it will be hard but I know that if I put my mind to it I can do it.   Wish me luck ladies.

Good for you!  I have been thinking about loosing weight for awhile now, my youngest is 18 months but I can't seem to get motivated.  You can do it, maybe you'll inspire me to start!
