Ready to start over again
Sun, 09-12-2010 - 12:56pm
I came to this board a long time ago with the intention of starting a weight loss program. Well, life got in the way, and it didn't happen. I now find myself here again, and need to start over again. I NEED to do this now. My marriage is in the toilet and approaching the end, so it is pretty much up to only me to take care of my kids. It scares the heck out of me that my health might cause something to happen to me, and they would be without me. They would not be in good hands with their father. So for my children's sake, I need to lose this weight now. I know it will also make me feel better about myself, during this very stressful time.
So I got back on the treadmill the other day, am going to buy a new scale today, and came back to the board. Help me stick with it when times are tough please!

Welcome to the board! Each of us has different reasons and motivations for being on this journey but we all try to support each other - hopefully you will find some of what you need ehre!

The best motivation in the world is doing something for our kids.
