A New Adventure!

I recently decided that I have had enough of being overweight.  I want to give you all a little background information on myself.  I will be 25 this year.  I used to be a very motivated and athletic person.  When I graduated from High School I slowed way down.  I have two beautiful kids!  I have a daughter who is almost 6 and a son who is almost 4.  My kids keep me busy but other than that I don't "exercise".  I do go for walks when the weather is nice but other than that don't really exercise.  
This is me right now
I wouldn't say that I decide to make losing weight my New Year's Resolution.  I just finally decided that I deserve to feel better than what I do and that my husband and kids deserve someone who takes care of her body.  So once I made the decision to start losing weight and exercising I decided I needed to come up with a plan to help me succeed.
My plan:
*I started Weight Watcher on 1/8/13
*I try to do some type of workout every day (big or small)
*Drink more water
*Drink less soda
*Tell others what I'm doing
That is my starting plan.  I plan to add new things to it as often as possible.  So your probably asking why is she writing about this on her blog?  I decided a great way to keep myself motivated would be to tell other people what I am doing!  I figure if others know what I am doing and I know they will ask how I am doing I won't want to fail.  I won't want to have to get on here and tell you all I failed.  I believe it is going to help me a lot.  As much as I love it right now I know I will have tough days ahead! 
I am working on contacting companies to do reviews on products that have to do with exercising or losing weight!  I think it will be awesome to not only post about my weight journey but also try out new products to share with all of you!
Alright so I'm putting it all out on the line.  My starting weight as of 1/8/13 is 178.2.
Please stop by and ask me question, tell me things that have helped you and if you want join in on losing weight!  Just use the comments section!

  1. Awesome, good luck! I am working on making changes myself! And I too have a 6 and 4 year old so I know what it's like to feel like you have no time to workout. My YMCA has a great daycare included with their low fee and I was going for 2 hours a day and my little one loved going to the play group. Gave it excuses, but really want to get back at it! I hear Weight Watchers is great and can't wait to see your results!

  2. I have a really good friend who is trying to lose a lot of weight and I think the key is sharing that information !!! Embrace your journey and maybe people will join you in some way (by supporting you, working out with you, eating healthy with you) I think its a commendable thing to share something so personal as weight loss!!!
