I've started and i will finish.
80lb to go, gulp. 13lb in the first week and weigh in tomorrow. It is going to be a long journey ahead but I am determined. I may have days in the months to come when I waver and wobble but I want to remember why I am doing this:
First and foremost so that I can grow old with my husband and see my children grow up.
Reduce my blood pressure and come if the pills.
Reduce my cholesterol mad come off the pills.
Not use my under active thyroid as am excuse not to try and reduce my weight.
To have energy.
To be able to participate in all activities when in Barbados in the summer.
To feel comfortable in my body.
To feel as attractive as my husband seems to find me regardless of my weight.
To not shy away from photographs and always be the photographer.
For my children's friends not to comment to them about my weight.
So that I do not always wonder if people are focusing on my weight when they first meet me.
To wear my wedding ring again.
To wear my engagement ring again.
To wear my eternity ring again.
To wear my grandmother's ring again.
To throw away my big clothes.
To get out and wear my slim clothes.
To be proud of my weight loss.
And so to bed...
