I gained forty pounds with my first child and I have never lost it. That sounds like a common problem, I know. The difference is, my child is now 24 years old! I have carried this extra weight around for 24 years! I am sick of it.
I am a five foot one female in peri-menopause, and I weigh 166 pounds. I am going to lose this tub in the next 12 months, and become a trim somebody again, or die trying.
My weight is totally out of control. I’m 55, had a physical yesterday (2/18/10), and aside from Mother Nature’s cruel sense of humor (pre-menopause) and weighing in at 253 lb., I’m healthy.
So the moment of truth is this. Do I want to continue down this path of self-destruction? Eating myself to death? Or do I take control of this body once and for all so I can live to pursue the dreams I’ve been working so hard to accomplish these past few years?
My public challenge: Lose 100 lbs. I’m giving myself 12 months to go from a tub to the trim, healthy person I know I can be.
