I began this journey at my heaviest recorded 205 lbs. I am currently 149! I started this after my son and I were very sick Christmas two years ago. I realized I was always taking care of everyone else and not myself. Almost, like I didn’t care at all about myself…kinda a lost cause. I had lost some weight during my son’s illness but not on purpose. I decided to take that loss as a positive and eat smaller portions. The second week I started eating healthier and proper portions. This turned into a challenge for me. I decided to find a gym. A gym that offered childcare so I never had that excuse. I pay more than some but I am comfortable there and my kids love the childcare! Guess what else I actually go! I have had many of gym memberships and paid them religiously but went sporadically! So with the portion control, healthy eating and gym the journey began!
