What can I tell you about me that you dont already know? Well, everything. But I'm not here to write a novel of my life... no one would ever print it! (or spend the time to read it) No, I'm here to write about my struggles with FAT! Yes... the "f" word. As ugly a word as it is, I have lived with it my whole life. Now, after two kids and two major surgeries... I am ready to get rid of this load on my shoulders....waist...butt...hips.... (you get the picture)

So where to start... ugh. The ultimate question that usually stumps people so badly that they just say... FORGET IT. But... not me. Where am I starting? Well.. with well proportioned meals, excesive amounts of water, extra cups of decaf tea... and, of course, EXCERSIZE. Now... I have always been active. I was a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and Karate by the time I was 16. (I just signed up for a Kempo class on saturday.. .we'll see if I still got it) My main problem is food. I LOVE food. It is not just my comfort.. it is my lover... my friend. It does not help that being a stay home mom, I tend to cook, ALOT, and love it. So , food will be my main competitor in this race. Second will be my stamina. How long will I be able to keep this up? Will I be able to make this "life change" that you have to do in order to lose the wieght for good?

Well... I dont have those answers just yet... but hopefully we will find them along the way.

First thing first... running 2 miles in the morning. Wish me luck

Good luck with the 2 miles!

Just remember to give it time...lots and lots of time. And if you eat a lot at breakfast, don't fall into the trap of thinking the day is shot and then eat lots more. Take one meal at a time; one minute at a time.

You can do it!
