it all started with a pair of jeans.

I loved my time alone with my coffee the other day.

I loved finding a new pair of jeans.

What I did not love was the body that faced me in a dressing room mirror.

It is my own doing- my own choices. A choice NOT to exercise. A choice to eat instead of deal with an emotion. A choice to eat more when I am already satisfied. Lots of unhealthy choices.

They are all choices I have made that have led me to this point.

When I stare in the mirror, I don't even recognize myself. I have gained SO much weight and am the heaviest I have ever been.

I finally got sick of the excuses I kept making.

I joined Weight Watchers.

It is Day Two and things are going great, but I am battling bad habits. Bad habits of overeating and boredom snacking.

I am proud of these two days however I have a long way to go. 100 pounds long.

So, I will write out this journey- because writing heals and teaches me.

If you care to join me, you can find my future posts on this subject on my weight loss blog!

My grandma always said that in her stay-at-home mom, child rearing years that she would snack all day long. And on the weekends I also find myself doing the same. Good luck, you're already gorgeous and I am excited to follow the new blog :)

I totally understand how it is to be over weight. YOU CAN DO IT! The biggest hurdle is the mind. I was 141 lbs over weight - that's an extra adult I was carrying around. I still have 62 lbs to loose so I know the journey is an interesting situation to find oneself in. I'll be praying for your awesome success!! You've made the first step!

You are so awesome. I love how you own it, and say that it was your choices that got you to this point. I really like to make excuses for myself...which leads to being miserable...which leads to more you see where I'm going with this??
